Trump objects to DOJ’s proposed special master candidates

Former President Trump’s legal team on Monday filed a motion objecting to the special master candidates proposed the other day by the Department of Justice to examine the data seized from Mar-a-Lago.

Driving the news headlines: “There are particular explanations why those nominees aren’t preferred for service as Special Master in cases like this,” Trump’s lawyers wrote, adding that “it really is more respectful to the candidates” to withhold the reason why for opposition “from the public, and apt to be widely circulated, pleading.”

  • Trump’s legal team is asking “for permission to specifically express our objections to the Governments nominees only at such time that the Court specifies a need to obtain and consider that information.”

The picture as a whole: The DOJ the other day, following a order of Judge Aileen Cannon, proposed two special master candidates.

  • The DOJ’s proposed candidates are Barbara S. Jones, a retired judge who was simply nominated by former President Clinton, and Thomas B. Griffith, a retired appeals judge who was simply nominated by former President George W. Bush.

Catch up quick: Trump on Monday also asked Cannon to reject the DOJ’s obtain a stay of her ruling to let a special master review evidence seized last month from his Mar-a-Lago residence.
