NEW: Federal magistrate judge Bruce Reinhart says he’s inclined to partially unseal the Trump Mar-a-Lago affidavit — instructs DOJ to file a redacted affidavit by next Thursday at 12 noon ET and be prepared to explain redactions.

It won’t make critics happy if there are redactions on the affidavit, espeically if that includes the true reason for the raid.
The entire affidavit should be unsealed because the investigataion into Trump is politically motivated and a fraud. Biden has been putting pressure on the AG to investigate Trump and thus Garland is obliging him. Biden has every reason to use the government to try and destroy Trump because he knows Trump wants to run in 2024.
It’s my hope that Reinhart errs on the side of transparency with the affidavit, but I’m not going to hold my breath.
