Wow. I’ve heard the expression “crawling up someone’s butt” before, but checking out someone’s… taint?
Well folks, get your mind out of the gutter because this isn’t that kind of taint. As reported by Fox News, the Department of Justice has created a task force to examine the evidence seized in the raid on former President Trump’s home to ensure that none of it is tainted by attorney-client privilege.
Apparently, this kind of thing is normal in investigations like this one. But there seems to be little “normal” about this whole situation. While Trump presses for the release of the affidavit used to justify the FBI raid on his home and requests a special master to assess the seized material, the Justice Department has balked at doing either. With the mid-term elections looming and a 2024 presidential election that seems up for grabs at this point, it will be interesting to see what the evidence shows… “tainted” or not.
