Judge Delivers Crucial Ruling On Trump’s Request In Mar-a-Lago Raid Case

  • U.S. District Judge Aileen Cannon has rejected a request from former President Donald Trump for a third party “special master” to oversee the Justice Department’s investigation into classified records found at his Mar-a-Lago estate in Florida.
  • “Cannon, an appointee of the former president, affirmed an appeals court’s decision on Monday that she lacked jurisdiction to appoint a special master to oversee documents taken from his estate and lifted an injunction that blocked investigators from using them in a criminal investigation in the meantime,” the Washington Examiner reported.
