A legal barrier has been broken – a maiden legal voyage has been taken: the FBI executed a search warrant at Mar-a-Lago, the Florida home of former President Donald Trump. This is a historic law enforcement move by the Department of Justice.

Importantly, in order to obtain a search warrant for Trump’s home, a federal judge had to have concluded that there was probable cause to believe there is evidence of federal crimes on the property of Mar-a-Lago.

This video discusses what we know about this monumental development, what we don’t know, and what the DOJ should now do on the transparency front to promote a full and accurate understanding of the state of the criminal investigation that prompted today’s search warrant at Mar-a-Lago.
