Is it now more important to “GET” a political opponent, the protections of the Constitution are being ignored?
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.
In easy understandable language it says, “The Fourth Amendment guards against the government’s ability to conduct unreasonable search and seizures when the individual party being searched has a “reasonable exception of privacy.””
What the government did.
The government obtained a search warrant for particular items. But then went into an attorney’s office and then seized and reviewed everything in the attorney’s office.
If this is allowed the 4th Amendment is worthless. But more important the idea of “Attorney Client Privilege” is also dead.
The government did not take just the items specified in the search warrant. The government took EVERYTHING! And is now reviewing everything. Including documents, the government attorneys know are privileged and they should not be reviewing.
I don’t care how much you hate President Trump. You should be protesting this overreach of government.
Because the government did not just take documents relating to President Trump. The government took ALL documents. They took privileged communications from every client. And they are reviewing those documents. If you happened to be a client of that attorney. The government just took and is reviewing everything about YOU. Without any search warrant.
If the “Get Him” attitude outweigh the protections of the Constitution. Then we are in a Police State. Because if the government can do this to President Trump, IT CAN DO IT TO YOU! Think about that while you are cheering the end of laws.
