Judge Gives Former President Trump Deadline to Refine Legal Argument

A federal judge has given former President Trump until Friday to refine the legal arguments in his request for a ‘special master’. District Court Judge Aileen Cannon in the Southern District of Florida ordered Trump’s lawyers to elaborate on their arguments for why the court has the ability to step in at this time, explain what exactly Trump is asking for and whether the Justice Department has been served with Trump’s ‘special master’ motion. Cannon also asked the team to weigh in on any effect the request might have on a separate review conducted by a magistrate judge into whether any portions of the affidavit that lay out probable cause for the search can be released.
