- Department asked Magistrate Judge Bruce Reinhart to keep sealed the affidavit included with the warrant FBI used to raid former President Trump’s Florida home.
Reinhart is judge who approved the FBI’s warrant for the raid and later ordered the DOJ to respond to suit seeking the public release of the warrant.
