"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 warrant 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 court, you have to show that you have exhausted all other means to get the information in order to support "The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated..."
According to the National Presidential Archives, Trump was giving them everything they wanted. The FBI issued a subpoena regarding the camera footage on site, and those were given. I don't understand a raid, when a subpoena should have been tried first.
Skipping that point may get this kicked out. I'm not blaming anyone except for the agents responsible for the case. Either they were told to do it this way, or they were pressured. So we'll see how this flashes out.

Trump tonight says, "Not only will I not oppose the release of documents related to the unAmerican, unwarranted, and unnecessary raid … I am going a step further by ENCOURAGING the immediate release of those documents".
We'll see if that actually happens at 3pm eastern time tomorrow. Of course, Trump has a copy of the warrant. I know of nothing that is stopping him from releasing his copy of the warrant.
