Aug. 22 (UPI) — Former President Donald Trump on Monday filed a motion in a Florida court requesting an authorized to examine materials seized from his Mar-a-Lago home by the Justice Department earlier this month.
In the motion, Trump’s lawyers needed an injunction avoiding the government from further reviewing the seized materials until a “special master” is appointed to the case.
Trump also argues that his constitutional rights were violated by the search and that privileged materials might have been seized.
In the filing, Trump’s lawyers requested a far more detailed receipt of that which was taken off Mar-a-Lago through the search.
The motion further requests that the judge issue an order to really have the Justice Department return almost everything seized from the Palm Beach, Fla., resident that “had not been within the scope of the search warrant.”
The National Archives initially retrieved 15 boxes of White House documents along with other items from Mar-a-Lago in January and 8 weeks ago federal agents traveled to the resort to retrieve additional materials they believed Trump hadn’t turned over.
On Aug. 8, FBI agents seized 11 boxes of documents, including a minumum of one group of papers that were categorized as ” inside info “, classified or sensitive within an investigation wanting to determine whether Trump brought highly secret information regarding the U.S. nuclear arsenal to his Florida home.
Rigtht after the search, Trump criticized the Justice Department and needed the release of the affidavit used to obtain the search warrant.
The other day, Magistrate Judge Bruce E. Reinhart said at the very least portions of the affidavit could “presumptively be unsealed” and ordered the Justice Department to send him proposed redactions by Thursday.
