Judge Issues Ruling in Case of Trump’s ‘Special Master’ Request

As Donald Trump watched his Florida home besieged by armed FBI agents last month, you could almost tell that something had snapped in him.

This was no longer your ordinary political battle, no.  With the FBI fully weaponized, Trump would have no choice but to pull out all the stops in order to prevent the left from going too far.

In the case of the egregious number of documents seized from Mar-a-Lago, many of which weren’t likely a part of the scope of the investigation to begin with.

This week, Trump’s wish was granted.

A federal judge ordered Monday that an independent special master be appointed to review the records seized by the FBI during its raid of former President Trump’s Mar-a-Lago home and ordered the Justice Department stop its own review of the material for investigative purposes.

U.S. District Judge from the Southern District of Florida Judge Aileen M. Cannon ordered that the special master be appointed to “review the seized property, manage assertions of privilege and make recommendations thereon, and evaluate claims for return of property.”

“The Court hereby authorizes the appointment of a special master to review the seized property for personal items and documents and potentially privileged material subject to claims of attorney-client and/or executive privilege,” the order states.

The move will also halt the DOJ’s work with the documents for the time being, as the special master will work to determine which documents taken from Mar-a-Lago are covered by the government’s search warrant.
