A Florida judge has granted former President Donald Trump’s request for a special master to oversee the document review of the materials seized in the August raid of Mar-a-Lago, multiple outlets confirm.
Judge Aileen Cannon ruled in the Trump team’s favor after last week’s filings from both the Department of Justice and Trump on the matter.

“The Government is TEMPORARILY ENJOINED from further review and use of any of the materials” seized in the raid at the former president’s home at Mar-a-Lago, Cannon ruled. The DOJ must wait for the special master to “review the seized property, manage assertions of privilege and make recommendations thereon, and evaluate claims for return of property.”
The FBI has, of course, already looked at the personal and attorney/client documents they stole and passed the information along to their media allies.
Biden’s crinimal activity and condeming 75 Million Americans Biden is hammering another nail into his 2024 reelection coffin and soon even Democrats will desert him
The libs on Twitter are losing their minds
This is huge and bigly.
A special master is not associated with the corrupt Gestapo/DOJ and if non partisan, will reveal the flawed purpose the Gestapo/doj raided Mar-a-Lago.
And, like dropping a hinge screw out of your eyeglasses in the grass, they aren’t easy to find.
It’s nothing but a desperate stalling tactic. We already know that highly sensitive classified material was found in Mar-a-Lago after Trump’s attorneys claimed there was none.

No we don’t.
We only know the regime of a man who was installed illegally by a rigged 2020 election raided a political opponent, Soviet-style, and then the puppet literally acted like Hitler on national TV.
Trump’s popularity has NEVER been higher.
What are you going to do this November, greg? What’s the new angle? What hoaxes and fraud do you people have planned?
Democrats only say an election is rigged if THEY lose it…
Adding to the overwhelming and factual evidence of voter fraud…
Biden won nothing, and is not the legal president of the United States of America. He’s a dictator, and should be removed immediately.
We are under attack from domestic enemies installed by banks, globalists, existing deep state operatives, and foreign interests.
HOW do you know that? Through FBI leaks? Do you NEVER tire of being lied to?
What Trump cultists don’t know won’t matter in a courtroom. Only the evidence will matter.
What evidence? All you have is leaked rumors and lies
Rummaging through the closets and drawers creeped Melania out, so she got an entire new wardrobe.
Baronn a 16 year old, his room was also violated while Hunter known for rampant criminal behavior gets ignored.
Scattering empty file folders around Trumps office for a staged photo leak as if he would have his workspace messy, the man is no slob.
All triggered by some lowly paper pusher at archives with an agenda, seems Biden has super secret papers at his residence he admitted it, both have same security.
Complete idiocy. greg support s a pResident who is a Nazi.
The were no classified documents in President Trumps possession. This is killing the new Nazi party of America
Per the biggest liar to ever darken this website:
Apparently, Comrade Greggie wants to push the lie that the FBI and the DOJ, under Democrats, are beyond lying. His CCP handlers should teach him some history of the FBI.
They claimed there was a water main break and told the observers counting was over for the night. The observers were TOLD to go home. But, of course, there was no water main break and counting resumed as soon as the observers left. Then, an inexplicable spike in votes for idiot Biden occurred, like happened in other swing states. There has been no reasonable explanation for the fake water main break, sending the observers home and resuming counting without observers. Quite suspicious to say the least.
Tell me, why would someone that committed election fraud come forth and admit it? I can’t think of a single reason.
Where did the 81 million go? It looks like Biden isn’t handing out enough cash to draw much of a crowd.
They ran out of toner and paper.
DOJ Files Appellate Court Motion for Partial Stay Against Judge Cannon Ruling, DOJ Does Not Want Classified Documents Reviewed
As the DOJ-NSD originally threatened, they have filed an appeal of the ruling by Judge Cannon in the Trump Mar-a-Lago document case. [Pdf Here]
The DOJ is requesting the 11th Circuit Court to intervene and “stay” or block a part of the ruling surrounding letting the Special Master, Judge Raymond J Dearie, review the “classified documents” and make an independent determination as to the validity of the DOJ-NSD claims.
Having read all the motions in the case, you can get a sense of the authorship from the motion. From my perspective this effort appears to have been written by the Lawfare group and filed by their allies in Main Justice at the DOJ National Security Division (DOJ-NSD). The bottom line is they really don’t want any outside party making a determination as to the status of the 100 “classified documents,” and/or consider if President Trump had previously declassified them.
The crux of their position is outlined in this part of the motion, which appears to hold a logical fallacy [pdf link Here]:
The framework of the appeal appears to be built on a false premise. The DOJ argument is contingent upon the government not having the original documents, and the claim is made *AS IF* there is only one copy. Even if this appeal is within the framework of a valid issue for an appellate court review (not a guarantee), when you apply commonsense the motion fails on its face.
The original documents are always retained by the originating agency. No one, not even the President, sees original intelligence documents from within any agency creating the product. Everything, including what President Trump would have seen while in office, and including any “read and return” version of the intelligence product, is a copy that stems from the originals. As a result, the executive branch (DOJ) has access to the originals regardless of what copies they may have retrieved from Mar-a-Lago.
I think what is “classified” are the Russia collusion files, which Trump declassified but the FBI never got around to releasing.
Exactly, they are terrified that should these documents become available to the American people, it will confirm what we have known all along. The democrats attempted a coup de etat against candidate Trump, nominee Trump, President elect Trump and finally President Trump. It was a true insurrection that when known to the American people will demand the dismantling of the administrative state.
And, worse now, it would reveal what this raid was all about.
