This is a major development.
U.S. District Judge Aileen Cannon who is ruling on former President Donald Trump’s request to appoint a special master to review the documents which were seized by the FBI from his Mar-a-Lago home has just made a major decision.
According to Newsmax, Judge Cannon has granted Trump’s request to appoint a special master to review the documents which the FBI took from his home.
Furthermore, the judge noted that the raid which took place against Trump “involved political calculations” to potentially diminish the leading voice of the Republican Party just ahead of the midterm elections.
Before making the decision Judge Cannon hinted that she would allow Trump to appoint a special master by saying “What is the harm?” when asked if she was going to.
JUST IN: Judge Aileen Cannon grants Trump’s motion to appoint a special master “to review the seized property for personal items and documents and potentially privileged material subject to claims of attorney client and/or executive privilege.”

This new appointment of a special master will likely slow down the investigation however it will not affect any investigative decisions or the ultimate outcome of the probe.
