The Department of Justice told a federal judge on August 29 what they had found during their August 8 raid on Donald Trump’s Mar-a-Lago residence.
“‘Limited’ materials that could potentially be covered by the attorney-client privilege.”
Former President Trump had filed a motion the previous week with Judge Aileen M. Cannon, a Trump appointee, to have a “special master” appointed to “review the seized materials to weed out those that involve attorney-client privilege or executive privilege.”
The DOJ had opposed the use of a special master.
They wanted to rifle through all Trump’s documents themselves, or at least be able to control the person that was about to.
Trump figured out their plan though, and Cannon said she was “inclined to agree” with Trump’s request for a special master.
According to Breitbart, potential legal battles in regards to the raid on Mar-a-Lago may be being slowed by Trump’s inability to find a lawyer to represent him.
“The media reported that Trump was having trouble finding lawyers to represent him — a possible reason for the delay. Reports suggested that lawyers were unsure whether Trump would pay them; the same reports did not mention the fact that lawyers for Trump have been subjected to aggressive Bar complaints, or forced to testify at the January 6 Committee.”
