The U.S. Justice Department has asked a court to release documents that allowed the FBI to search former U.S. President Donald Trump’s Mar-a-Lago estate in Florida, Reuters writes.

Attorney General Merrick Garland said he personally approved the decision to conduct investigative actions. He stressed that the Ministry of Justice is asking for the warrant to be made public “due to the fact that the ex-president publicly confirmed the fact of the searches, in the light of the surrounding circumstances and significant public interest in this issue.”

According to the agency, the statement of the head of the Ministry of Justice is unusual: as a rule, law enforcement agencies do not comment on ongoing investigations. Garland issued his statement after Trump called the investigation an “act of political retaliation” by his successor, incumbent President Joe Biden.

Searches in Mar-a-Lago took place on Monday, August 8. The media claim that their cause could be the situation with secret documents that Trump took out of the White House. Trump himself called the searches harassment and refused to testify, citing the Fifth Amendment to the US Constitution, which gives citizens the right not to testify against themselves.
