Washington (AFP) – In a legal victory for former President Donald Trump, a federal judge on Monday granted his request for a private master to review documents the FBI seized from his Florida home and temporarily halted the Justice Department’s use of the records for the investigation. purposes.
U.S. District Judge Eileen Cannon’s ruling authorizes an outside legal expert to review records taken during the August 8 search and dispose of the remainder of the investigation, which may be protected by a claim of attorney-client privilege or executive privilege. Some of those records may eventually be returned to Trump, but the judge has delayed ruling on this question.
