    Judge Plans To Appoint Special Master In Trump Raid

    Published on

    This month’s FBI raid on the Trump family residence in Florida was authorized by a search warrant issued by

    The FBI stated that they wanted to recover “highly sensitive” papers in Trump’s possession, as described by a magistrate court.

    The search was conducted as part of a criminal investigation into allegations of “willful retention” of sensitive material, theft of government documents, and obstruction of justice.

    Former President Trump stated that he declassified the aforementioned papers before to leaving office.

    Trump has also alleged that the FBI inspected the safekeeping of the papers at Mar-a-Lago and simply recommended that an additional lock be added to the storage room door.

    Trump did install the lock in question.

    Federal Judge Bruce Reinhart, who authorized the search warrant, had already recused himself from a case involving the 45th president.

    Former President Trump argued that Reinhart should have also recused himself from this case.

    Trump has regularly written about the raid and criticized the FBI’s conduct during the search.

    “The FBI and others form the Federal Government would not let anyone, including my lawyers, be anywhere near the areas that were rummaged and otherwise looked at during the raid on Mar-a-Lago. Everyone was asked to leave the premises, they wanted to be left alone, without any witnesses to see what they were doing, taking, or hopefully not, ‘planting’. Why did they STRONGLY insist on having nobody watching them, everybody out? Obama and Clinton were never raided, despite big disputes!”

    Trump has also claimed that the FBI “demanded” that the surveillance cameras be deactivated so that no record of the search would exist.

    “They even asked that the security cameras be turned off, which we refused to do, but there was no way to determine if the items they stole were genuine or if they were planted?” He published a message on his website.

    Former President Trump has asserted that all of the records in his possession were protected by executive privilege or attorney-client privilege, using the Presidential Records Act in his defense.

    More on this story via The Republic Brief:

    On Sunday, Trump posted,” Federal Judge in Florida just took over the Presidential Records Act case, in cluding the unprecidented, unnecessary, and unannounced FBI/DOJ Raid (Break-In!) of my home, Mar-a-Lago.”

    This past week, Trump has filed a motion asking for a “special master” to review the documents the FBI seized form Mar-a-Lago.

    Cornell Law describes a “special master” as someone appointed by the court to carry out some sort of action on its behalf. CONTINUE READING…
