Special Master Granted by Judge in Shock Win for Trump’s legal team

A federal judge has granted former President Donald Trump’s request to appoint an independent special foreman to review documents seized in last month’s Mar-a-Lago raid, a shocking victory for the former president.

“The Court hereby authorizes the appointment of a special master to examine the seized property for personal effects and documents and potentially privileged material entitled to attorney and/or executive privilege,” U.S. District Judge Aileen Cannon wrote in an order Monday.

Government investigators are now barred from “reviewing and using the seized materials for investigative purposes” until the special master’s review is complete.

Trump’s lawyers called for the appointment of a special supervisor to protect the former president’s rights, arguing that some of the documents taken during the search were “presumably privileged” because they involve the president’s communications with advisers.

“It is unreasonable to allow the prosecution team to review them without reasonable safeguards,” Trump’s attorneys said in their request.

“Apart from returning the confiscated items to the Movant [Trump]Only an impartial review by a special master can protect the ‘high public interest’ in maintaining ‘the confidentiality of conversations conducted by the President in the performance of his official duties,'” his attorneys wrote.

This is breaking news and will be updated.
