Trump’s Request GRANTED – Judge Makes Critical Decision!
(RepublicanReport.org) – The FBI raid on the Mar-a-Lago home of former President Donald Trump on August 8 continues to dominate news headlines. The former president has been severely critical of the search operation, claiming it’s evidence that the FBI and Department of Justice (DOJ) have become political weapons. Now, he has won a significant victory in terms of his response to the situation.
A federal judge in Florida, Aileen Cannon, granted Trump’s request to have a special master review documents agents seized from his home. A special master is an independent attorney who will decide whether any of the documents in question are protected by executive privilege or attorney-client privilege.

Trump is under investigation for alleged mishandling of classified material that reportedly became evident following the raid. He stands accused of taking secret documents from the White House when his presidency concluded.
The former president asked for a special master to be involved in the case as he’s arguing he declassified the documents in question, and that they fall under the protection of executive or attorney-client privilege. This development will slow down the government’s investigation into the matter, as further examination of the documents cannot take place until the special master’s work has concluded. Any government appeal of Judge Cannon’s decision will cause further delays.
What do you think the outcome might be of the investigation into Donald Trump’s document handling?
