Judge allows Trump team to review documents seized from Mar-A-Lago
WASHINGTON (AP) — A federal judge on Monday granted a request from former President Donald Trump’s legal team to appoint a special master to review documents seized by the FBI during a search of his Florida home on last month.
U.S. District Judge Aileen Cannon’s decision came over objections from the Justice Department, which said an outside legal expert was not needed in part because officials had already completed their review of potentially privileged documents. . The judge previously flagged her tendency to endorse a special master, asking a department attorney during closing arguments this month, “What’s the harm?”
The appointment could slow the pace of the department’s investigation into the presence of top-secret information at Mar-a-Lago, but it is unlikely to affect investigative decisions or the final outcome of the investigation.
