A federal court in West Palm Beach on Friday unsealed more documents tied to the FBI’s unprecedented Aug. 8 search of former President Donald Trump’s Florida home, after media outlets asked for the records to be made public.
The unsealing by U.S. District Judge Aileen Cannon came one day after she heard oral arguments by Trump’s attorneys and the Justice Department’s top two counterintelligence prosecutors over whether she should appoint a special master to conduct a privilege review of the seized materials at Trump’s request.
Cannon deferred ruling immediately on whether to appoint a special master, but said she would agree to unseal two records the Justice Department had filed under seal.
There are few new details in this latest development.
The list includes U.S. government documents with secret classification marking; documents and photographs without a classification marking; magazines, newspapers and articles; documents with confidential, secret and top secret markings; empty folders with classified banners; empty folders marked “return to staff secretary/military aide”; articles of clothing/gift item; and books.
