The Justice Department Appeals The Special Master Appointed In Trump’s Mar-a-Lago Case

The Justice Department has appealed the recent decision for a special master to review documents seized from Trump’s Mar-a-Lago estate.

The brief presented by the DOJ consisted of criticism of Judge Cannon’s actions. They argue that cannon had no authority to obstruct with a federal criminal investigation. It was revealed that Trump has no plausible claim of attorney-client privilege over the documents taken from Mar-a-Lago, which could have allowed a special master to review them.

The DOJ once again argued that the documents seized could be a potential risk to national security and the need for a special master would hold back the investigation. Investigators say they need access to the documents due to possible evidence of government records that were unlawfully concealed or removed.

The appeal will take weeks to be decided. For now, the appointed special master is not allowed to review the documents until a decision is reached.
