Judicial Watch Sues Secret Service for Records about Biden Raid on President Trump’s Florida Home

(Washington, DC) – Judicial Watch announced today that it filed a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit against the Department of Homeland Security for all communications of the U.S. Secret Service internally and with the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) regarding the raid on President Trump’s home and for any video or audio recordings made during the raid on August 8, 2022 (Judicial Watch Inc. v. U.S Department of Homeland Security (No. 1:22-cv-03147))

Judicial Watch filed the lawsuit in the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia after the Secret Service ignored an August 11, 2022, FOIA request asking for:

 The FBI reportedly notified the Secret Service a few hours before the raid that it would happen and that Secret Service agents facilitated access to Trump’s home.

“What is the Secret Service trying to hide about its involvement in the Biden FBI’s unprecedented and abusive raid of Trump’s home,” said Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton. “This FOIA lawsuit, the fourth filed on the Trump raid, further highlights the Biden administration’s comprehensive cover-up about its latest abuses of the former president.” 

Judicial Watch is in the forefront on the court battle for transparency regarding the abusive Biden raid on Trump’s home.

Last week, Judicial Watch announced that the National Archives is withholding 99% of the requested records about the raid in response to Judicial Watch’s FOIA lawsuit.

In August, Judicial Watch forced the release of the raid affidavit through its court request to unseal the warrant materials used in the raid.

Judicial Watch also filed two lawsuits against the Justice Department for records of the raid search warrant application and approval, as well as communications about the warrant between the FBI, the Executive Office of the President, and the Secret Service.
