Posted on 08/30/2022 10:07:45 AM PDT by bitt
A federal court on Tuesday canceled a hearing over Trump election lawyer John Eastman’s attempt to reclaim his seized phone.
The court canceled the hearing after the corrupt Justice Department obtained a second search warrant which undermined Eastman’s case.
The judge continued, “The undersigned will take the Government at its word that the warrant was issued, and the Court’s decision will be based in part on that representation.”
“With this in mind, the Court will vacate the hearing currently set for September 6, 2022, and will decide Eastman’s motion on the written submissions of parties,” the judge wrote. The hearing was set for September 6, 2022.
“Given that the Government has affirmed to the Court on the record that a warrant has been issued, the Court finds that Eastman cannot make a good faith argument that an evidentiary issue on the existence of warrant remains,” Judge Robert Brack, a George W. Bush appointee wrote.

What is not punished is permitted.
So we also need to see the Affidavit used to justify that particular warrant.
We also deserve to know just how many warrants were sought and how many were granted.
Sound to me like something ought to happen to a _____ about which I cannot speak.
Getting Trump... the whole of government... every ounce of power after one man...
For 6 years they have done everything... not letting laws nor truth get in their way.. they don’t care what Hillary did with documents.. emails... they don’t care about hunters laptop and the millions they took from other countries and child trafficking.
Nothing bothers them... just Trump.
An honest patriot, making America great again, not one of them.. working for the people..
The corrupt global power hungry deep state.. would take America and the people to the edge and drop us.. but Trump!
Thank God there is a man who will take the heat and keep fighting!!
we are clearly thru the looking glass now...
warrant issued after the fact?????
Attorney-Client privilege has been gutted by these corrupt judges.. I’ve never heard a peep about it from the ABA or the industry as a whole...the left has set the precedent, so lets use it against them and the criminal left. If conservative attorneys and clients have no privileged communications anymore, then the liberals/commies/fascists have none as well.
Think you got it right.
Apparently since the Constitution doesn’t outright ban Ex Post Facto warrants, they can be used.
IOW, just go ahead and search, then when you find something, go get some toilet paper to cover your ass.
Bow down!... Obey!... Snitch!...
First question to ask - is it a bench or jury trial?
If it is a jury trial, have they empaneled jurors?
If it is a bench trial, has it begun trial proceedings?
Was the 2nd warrant issued before the jury empaneling or trial began?
If the second warrant was issued before the empanelment or trial start, then it is legal (Basically, they can do over if proceedings haven’t started yet). If not issued before either jurors have been empaneled or the bench trial has started, Double Jeopardy would be applicable. This would make the second warrant illegitimate, make the phone and its contents inadmissible and trigger Double Jeopardy protection.
Because now  the standard the Courts use is not the Law but, "Is it right, or does it give me a good feeling, is the defendant of the correct political perusation, the wai I [the judge ]feels, or any other thing one can think of except the Law as written". President Trump will always be wrong. Period. Welcome to the New World Order and the World of Feelings.
So let’s review shall we?
Mr Lawdog gets warrant and takes materials based on that warrant one of which is a cell phone.
Target of search realized that phone should not have been part of the search and asks for it back.
Said phone has been in Lawdog’s possession for weeks.
Lawdog has likely gotten into to phone’s records.
Lawdog now hurries another warrant through a different judge to justify the original taking of a phone which Lawdog SHOULD NOT EVEN HAVE IN HIS POSSESSION.
Judge says , “ It’s all good. They rewrote the warrant. No biggie”.
So if this isn’t overturned then Lawdog can come to your home with a b s warrant, search and find stuff not on the warrant and have another warrant issued to cover the stuff not on the original warrant.
Completely destroys the “fruit from a poison tree” defense against unreasonable search and seizure.
Better appeal this one quickly.
“judge continued, “The undersigned will take the Government at its word......”
Sounds all legal and legit-like to me.
The law is now nothing but a cover for the ruling class to do whatever it wants. And if the law doesn’t fit, well, it’s close enough to provide cover for whatever they want to do.
“Apparently since the Constitution doesn’t outright ban Ex Post Facto warrants,”
Actually it does.
“The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.”
There is nothing in the constitution allowing the kings men to break your door, take what they want, and then later go to their office and describe what they did.
What is not authorized in the constitution is forbidden, or left to the states.
I think this is about Eastman’s phone.
“Apparently since the Constitution doesn’t outright ban Ex Post Facto warrants, they are allowed”
The Constitution doesn’t outright ban electrocuting your genitalia until you tell the the safe combination either. That doesn’t mean it’s allowed.
If Trump manages to return in 2025, the retribution he unleashes should be annihilation-level . . . against EVERY agency AND individuals who (mis)used government authority to influence an election OR to frustrate transparency uncovering the truth.
This was a fishing expedition to screw with President Trump flirting with announcing the building and timeline for his Presidential Library and Museum in Florida.
And Trump responded correctly by telling insiders in the FBwhy to spread the sand in the vaseline.
