image for Donald Trump Rages as DOJ Appeals Special Master Decision

Donald Trump is fuming as the Department of Justice (DOJ) seeks to block an independent arbiter from overseeing documents seized from his residence, deriding the government's move as a massive waste of time and money.

The former president on Thursday lashed out in a post to his Truth Social network after the DOJ signaled it would appeal a judge's approval of a special master that has said it will slow its investigation of Trump's alleged hoarding of classified documents.

The appeal is the latest in the legal wrangling following the FBI's court-approved search of Trump's Mar-a-Lago residence in August.

In a follow-up post, Trump rehashed his long-running grievances with federal law enforcement agencies, accusing them of leaking information, lying and planting "fake evidence.".

The DOJ on Thursday filed a notice that it would appeal U.S. District Court Judge Aileen Cannon's decision earlier this week approving a request from Trump's lawyers to appoint a special master.

Trump's lawyers argued the special master was needed to sort out personal materials or documents covered by attorney-client or executive privilege that were mixed in with other documents seized from his Florida home.

The DOJ has opposed appointing a special master, arguing that a "filter team" had already weeded out privileged documents and that legal precedent didn't support the appointment. »

Trump is under investigation for retaining government records, some of which were marked as highly classified, at the resort in Palm Beach, Florida, his home after leaving office in January 2021.

The 100 documents represent a fraction of the more than 11,000 records and photographs seized, most of which the government said Trump may review because they are not classified.

The Justice Department on Thursday suggested there could be more classified records that were removed from the Trump White House that investigators have not yet located. »
