“Special master” for documents


Former president Donald Trump won a legal victory on Monday when a federal judge granted his request that a “special master”  be appointed to review documents seized by the FBI in its raid at Mar-A-Lago.

According to the Associated Press, U.S. District Judge Aileen Cannon’s order – which could be appealed – allowed an “outside legal expert” to determine if the documents could be covered under attorney-client privilege or executive privilege.

Trump’s lawyers and the Justice Department must submit by Friday a list of proposed candidates for special master.
