Federal Prosecutors Have Requested Nearly 1,000 Search Warrants So Far In 2022

Member David Siegal was quoted in Forbes covering an FBI-executed search warrant at the resort home of former President Donald Trump. David spoke on his experience with broad search warrants and said, "Mr. Trump’s motion is unusual in several respects... Motions challenging a search in the absence of a criminal charge are rare because the subject of the search simply does not have access to many of the facts needed to raise a challenge to the search – namely the supporting affidavit... The typical 4th Amendment motion is made only after criminal charges are filed, in the form of a motion to suppress... In this case, the situation is reversed: Mr. Trump is attempting first to obtain the application affidavit, for purposes of anticipating a cure before any charges are brought.”
