A copy of the search warrant that was used to justify the raid at former President Donald Trump's Mar-a-Lago estate is being requested by Trump at this time. Reports indicate that Donald Trump and members of his legal team would most likely seek a court order compelling the FBI and the Justice Department to furnish him with a copy of the affidavit as well as the original document.

If Trump were to obtain a copy of the document, he would be in a position to release it to the public at his own discretion if he so chose. It was claimed that his appeal would also include a comprehensive inventory of the items that were stolen from his apartment.
In the meantime, FBI Director Chris Wray chose not to comment on the recent search of the residence of the 45th President of the United States. During a press conference that took place on Wednesday in Nebraska, Wray refused to disclose any new information regarding the search. This was despite rising calls from lawmakers for Wray to provide reason for the raid.
Since the search, the FBI director also asserted that there has been an increase in the number of threats made against Attorney General Merrick Garland and FBI personnel. Wray's remarks come at a time when Garland has not yet made any public statements regarding the raid.
