Ummm...I've got some bad news for you. You're going to learn that information, so you might want to start working on your next goal post right now.
You keep repeating this. Can you give some details as to why you think this is a problem? Are trump's people even trying to make this "argument?"He is. Why on earth would you take your warrant application to a judge who recused himself from another case involving the same person just six weeks prior. That was sloppy. And then resist releasing the justification for that application when it could eliminate all question of judicial bias. That’s even sloppier.
Yet. When Trump is ultimately charged with his crimes they will. At that point, they'll have all the evidence they need, and they will no longer need to hide the name of the sources.

And the Judge should have declined it so that it could be reassigned. Failing that, the DOJ should have requested recusal.The DOJ didn't take a warrant application to a Judge.
The case was assigned to the Judge based on rotation.
From the Internal Operating Procedures for the Southern District of Florida (which is the jurisdiction where judge presides.)

What this article misses or ignores is that a former President is not in the same situation as the average American, and that there are legitimate concerns about this situation being treated differently by the FBI and DOJ than prior situations involving issues of classified documents. It also ignores the obvious extant motives that could play into a raid on the home of a former President, meaning just having an investigation "running its course" over the mid-term elections has a political effect and therefore, the American people have a strong interest in knowing whether this raid was for political purposes or not. Moreover, the article ignores the history of politically motivated hit jobs against Donald Trump, the Russia hoax, and the FBI team lying to a federal judge to get warrants during the Russia Hoax investigation and also the FBI relying on concocted evidence in order to justify their actions.The trumpkin rubes are not going to like this:
It's time to get to the truth about the FBI search of former President Donald Trump's Mar-a-Lago home. This is not tyranny or political persecution.www.foxnews.com
Ever since news broke two weeks ago that the FBI had executed a search warrant on former President Donald Trump’s residence at Mar-a-Lago, the political world has been aflame with hyperbole, accusations, innuendo, and hysteria.
Every legal pundit and pundits pretending to know something about the law have emerged to try and explain what is really happening here. And the former president and his allies, as is their custom, have sought to flood the zone with political justifications and haphazard legal explanations to deflect from his conduct.
The truth needs to be set forth plainly and simply, and so let’s get down to brass tacks here. What happened on August 8, 2022, was not tyranny. It was not political persecution. It was not a minor dust up over bureaucratic processes blown out of proportion. It was the criminal justice system operating just like it does with any other private citizen on any other given day ending in a "y."
On 28 U.S.C. § 455 - which he cited to recuse himself from another Trump case just six weeks prior to signing this warrant. If he couldn’t be impartial in that case then why is he signing a warrant involving the same person?
Definitely not. The only information DOJ will suggest be revealed will be that which can be skewed against DJT.
The reason is there:I read his recusal for the Clinton/Trump case. He didn't specify any reason. What would be the reason he was not impartial in this case? And be specific. He was next in line for this case. Fact.
I would think that when the judge made statements that Donald Trump did not have the moral authority to kiss Representative Lewis' feet, that might call his impartiality into question, and arguably that shows a personal bias.I read his recusal for the Clinton/Trump case. He didn't specify any reason. What would be the reason he was not impartial in this case? And be specific. He was next in line for this case. Fact.
The reason is there:
“…pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 455”
Which is a statute requiring recusal for inability to be impartial. It’s also a fact that this judge could and should have recused himself from this case too.
OK.......which article of the many cited?
So, the section on personal bias seems to apply. As does the general section about "impartiality reasonably called into question.""He publicly tweeted personal criticism about President Trump’s character in 2017 before he became a magistrate judge in 2018. Magistrate Judge Reinhart just recused from a civil lawsuit from President Trump against Hillary Clinton six weeks ago,” said Mike Davis, president of the Article III Project. “How did his bias go away in the last six weeks?”
In one post, the judge said he “generally ignored” Mr. Trump’s tweets, but he responded to the former president’s criticism of the civil rights icon and late Georgia Congressman John Lewis.
“Donald Trump doesn’t have the moral stature to kiss John Lewis’s feet,” Judge Reinhart wrote on his Facebook page, according to Daily Wire. https://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2022/aug/12/magistrate-full-authority-search-warrant-trump-mar/
