Trump appointed U.S District Judge from the Southern District of Florida Judge Aileen M. Cannon ordered that the special master be appointed to “review the seized property, manage assertions of privilege and make recommendations thereon, and evaluate claims for return of property.”
Trump asked for the special master, claiming documents seized from him were covered by attorney client privilege and executive privilege. The FBI also acknowledged it overcollected evidence, including passports, attorney-client privilege records and even clothing.
Trump responded to the victory on his social media platform Truth Social.
“Remember, it takes courage and ‘guts’ to fight a totally corrupt Department of ‘Justice’ and the FBI,” Trump’s post read. “They are being pushed to do the wrong things by many sinister and evil outside sources. Until impartiality, wisdom, fairness, and courage are shown by them, our Country can never come back or recover — it will be reduced to being a Third World Nation!”
Judge Aileen said the FBI raid on former President Mar-a-Lago estate “involved political calculations” to diminish the leading voice of the Republican Party just months before the midterm election.
Every attack on President Trump has been a political calculation to stomp out the voice of the American people.
