The judge who approved the search warrant for the FBI to raid former President Donald Trump’s Mar-a-Lago estate in South Florida has been identified as Bruce Reinhart.
Agents had filed two requests with the federal magistrate in West Palm Beach before the search was carried out.
The office is made up of three judges – William Matthewman, Ryon McCabe and Reinhart, who was assigned the cases.
