The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.
Trump and his attorneys have been denied a copy of the search warrant that was the basis for searching his home, and further are being denied access to the probable cause that was the basis of the warrant.
Trump attorney Christina Bobb was the attorney who was on site. She explains that they initially wouldn’t even let her see the warrant, but then did; they were reluctant to let them have it. It’s not clear from what she says if they ultimately were able to obtain it at some point. She also explained that the probable cause for the warrant was sealed, so that they can’t even know what it was
Now the Courts have ruled that the IRS can forward Trump’s tax returns to Congress, who will use them as evidence that he has committed a crime. The IRS has long pointed to court cases where SCOTUS has ruled that filing a tax return isn’t a violation of your Fifth Amendment right against self incrimination. This now proves that to be incorrect, at least if you have become public enemy number one.
That also ignores the entire question as to how Congress has become a law enforcement body, which destroys separation of powers. Congress claims that, in demanding Trump’s tax returns, they aren’t investigating Trump, but are simply conducting oversight of the IRS. Who really believes that?
Then there is the NY Attorney General, who ran for office on a platform of convicting Donald Trump of something. Anything. So it’s no wonder he is pleading the Fifth at every deposition.
No matter what, they are going to perp walk him before November. Does he still get a Secret Service detail in prison? The stated goal of the left for all of this activity is to prevent him from running for office.
Not just a coincidence that today is the third anniversary of Jeffery Epstein not killing himself.

As with all the other stuff out there, when was the last time we saw a democrat actually spend time in jail? Hillary? Lois Lerner? Lon Horiuchi? Hunter? Bueller? Bueller?
This falls cleanly into the “badges? we don’t need no stinking badges” category. They’ll get away with it and no one gets punished.
The R’s might hold hearings, send out their tweets, play gotcha on social media, use it for campaigning and fund raising, but never actually, you know, hold them accountable.
