Garland provided no details.
AG Merrick Garland admitted he personally approved the search warrant on Mar-a-Lago.
Garland said: “The department does not take such a decision lightly. Where possible, it is standard practice to seek less intrusive means as an alternative to a search and to narrowly scope any search that is undertaken.”

He also announced the DOJ filed a motion to unseal the search warrant and property receipt regarding the raid on Trump’s Mar-a-Lago home.
“Given the intense public interest presented by a search of a residence of a former President, the government believes these factors favor unsealing the search warrant, its accompanying Attachments A and B, and the Property Receipt, absent objection from the former President,” the DOJ mentioned in the motion.

Garland also tried to preach about applying the law fairly to everyone.
“Under my watch, that is precisely what the DOJ is doing.”
