Judge Aileen Cannon granted President Trump’s request for a Special Master review of the material confiscated by the Biden DOJ during their raid on his home at Mar-a-Lago.
Judge Cannon also ‘temporarily enjoins’ or forbid the Biden regime from ‘reviewing and using the seized materials’ pending the completion of the review.
Materials seized by the FBI in last month’s raid included “medical documents, correspondence related to taxes, and accounting information” according to Judge Cannon.
So the FBI raid had nothing to do with so-called ‘nuclear weapons’ documents.
The Deep State raided Mar-a-Lago to seize FBI documents related to Spygate AND to take accounting information and correspondence related to taxes.
Judge Cannon in her order also noted there is a risk of Deep State leaks to the media.
The Daily Mail reported:
But she also cited documents uncovered by a Privilege Review Team that seized materials include ‘medical documents, correspondence related to taxes, and accounting information.’
She said the government acknowledged seizing some personal effects ‘without evidentiary value,’ with ‘upwards of 500 pages of material potentially subject to attorney-client privilege.’
She cited a ‘Detailed Property Inventory’ where the government said agents seized ‘approximately 11,000 documents and 1,800 other items from the office and storage room’ at Mar-a-Lago.
Her ruling also cited the risk of government leaks.
‘In addition to being deprived of potentially significant personal documents, which alone creates a real harm, Plaintiff faces an unquantifiable potential harm by way of improper disclosure of sensitive information to the public,’ she wrote.
The judge also showed a sensitivity to Trump’s reputation should he be indicted or even just based on the search of his home.
‘As a function of Plaintiff’s former position as President of the United States, the stigma associated with the subject seizure is in a league of its own. A future indictment, based to any degree on property that ought to be returned, would result in reputational harm of a decidedly different order of magnitude,’ she wrote.
In one passage the judge noted the ‘limits’ of her determination, stating that Trump ‘may not be entitled to return of much of the seized property or to prevail on his anticipated claims of privilege. That inquiry remains for another day,’ she added.
She also rejected a government analogy that Trump’s push to get back documents owned by the U.S. government were akin to a drug dealer in a case who pleaded guilty to dealing cocaine, then sought the return of $140,000 seized during a raid.
