Choose your plan ArrowRight The “filter team” used by the Justice Department to sort through the documents and weed out any material that should not be reviewed by criminal investigators has completed its review, the brief filed by Justice Department prosecutors says.

The filing came in response to a decision Saturday by U.S. District Judge Aileen M. Cannon to hold a hearing this week on Trump’s motion seeking the appointment of a special master.

Executive privilege is usually invoked to shield communications from Congress or the courts, not another department of the executive government, such as the Justice Department.

The Monday filing says only that the filter team has reviewed the documents for attorney-client privilege.

In her ruling Saturday, Cannon instructed the Justice Department to submit under seal a more detailed list of the materials taken by the FBI. »
