Americans are still processing the FBI storming into Mar-a-Lago.
The FBI is facing scrutiny for acting on the wishes of the Biden administration and the Democrat Party.
Now Trey Gowdy revealed three truths about the FBI raiding Trump that will leave you speechless.
Trey Gowdy addressed the court ruling on releasing portions of the affidavit the FBI used to justify the raid on Mar-a-Lago.
Gowdy listed the three reasons that the affidavit would not answer many questions Americans had about the Biden administration raiding the home of the leader of the political opposition.
Frist, Gowdy explained that the affidavit was just the government’s side of the story, and that the target of the search warrant had no ability to contest the evidence prosecutors put before a judge.
“There are a couple of things we’re thinking about between now and then. Even if we do get to see the affidavit, it’s just one side of the argument, it’s the government’s side. The target of the search doesn’t get to appear in front of a judge, and he doesn’t get to argue against the search or the affidavit. The information has not been cross-examined and the rules of evidence, which do apply in court, don’t apply to search warrants,” Gowdy stated.
Next, Gowdy told viewers that the probable cause standard to obtain a search warrant was much lower than the “beyond a reasonable doubt” standard to obtain a conviction in criminal court.
“Secondly, it takes probable cause to search, but it takes a whole lot more than that to convict. Whatever is in the affidavit may or may not wind up being true or proven. And it certainly isn’t the whole story because only the government participates in seeking a search warrant. We don’t know, and we won’t know until both sides present their facts and test the evidence on the other side,” Gowdy added.
Finally, Gowdy admitted that seeing the affidavit would not do anything, as people have their minds made up about Trump and those that hate him are not going to change their mind for anything.
“Thirdly, and perhaps most importantly, we should ask ourselves why. Why do we want to read the affidavit? How will it help us arrive at the truth? Do we want all the facts or are we content with just the facts that support what we already believe? Credible evidence is supposed to move us, to persuade us. Can we still be persuaded? Are minds still open for facts?” Gowdy concluded.
