A federal judge on Saturday indicated that she will likely grant former President Donald Trump’s request for a “special master” to oversee the FBI’s review of documents seized at his Mar-a-Lago home earlier this month.
U.S. District Judge Aileen Cannon declared in a two-page notice on Saturday her “preliminary intent to appoint a special master in this case.” The hearing to finalize the decision is scheduled for Sept. 1, next Thursday.
Cannon in the notice also demanded that the Department of Justice provide a fuller rundown of what FBI agents seized at Mar-a-Lago when they raided it several weeks ago.
A “special master” is “appointed by a court to carry out some sort of action on its behalf,” often to ensure that legal proceedings are followed properly by plaintiffs and/or defendants.
