Judge gives Trump until Friday to better explain why he wants special master for Mar-a-Lago Documents

District Court Judge Eileen Cannon in Southern District of Florida ordered Trump’s lawyers to clarify on their arguments for why does the court have ability to step in at this time, explain exactly what Trump is asking for and whether the Department of Justice was served with Trump special movement master.

A gun also asked Trump team weigh in on Any effect request may have on separate review conducted by the magistrate for the presence of any parts of still sealed FBI affidavit lying out probable cause for search can be disabled.

The judge’s ruling demonstrates many of the ways in which the complaint filed by Trump fell short of what could be expected of petition to the court for appointment of a special master – especially in search with high bids like one FBI executed in Mar-a-Lago earlier this month

“She says, ‘What are you doing in front of me?” Mark Schnapp, criminal defense lawyer in Florida who worked for seven years for US Attorney’s Office for Southern District of Florida, CNN reported.

Generally speaking, this is not outside legal rule for Trump to want a special involved master in in review of evidence seized from his Florida residence. His former attorney, Michael Cohen successfully sought appointment of a special master when Cohen office and the houses were searched by the FBI in 2018.

But Trump waited two weeks to make such a request with raised eyebrows because of how far ahead in a process that the Justice Department is likely to in considering what he captured in Mar-a-Lago.

And when Trump did submit his request with court, the complaint was heavily based on political allegations, being light on view of legal discussion that would explain to the court why it should intervene and what authority he had to do so.

Trump also didn’t file with complaint view of a separate request — for example, a petition for temporary restraining order or preliminary injunction — that would expedite up timeline for judge to consider what Trump asked for.

There was no legal team file any declarations — ie. statements from lawyers who said they interacted with ministry of justice in in lead-up and after the search back up the factual allegations of the complaint.

Instead, the complaint echoes allegations of an FBI investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election while sensationally suggesting that the Justice Department’s actions were motivated by a desire to prevent Trump from becoming president in 2024. run. it also included full text of a warning Trump allegedly tried to deliver through his lawyers to Attorney General Merrick Garland.

Schnapp said Trump’s statement on Monday read more like a political message than a legal document.

“They didn’t really ask for anything. It’s crazy,” Schnapp said. – They didn’t ask for anything to do in direct future slow it down even though that’s what they claimed to do”

Trump move file a separate case that was assigned to Judge Cannon rather than file a request with world judge who signed off on order, also caused confusion among outside legal experts. It looks like Trump’s lawyers even ran into procedural problems. with innings of lawsuit and with their attempts to enter into images in a business.
