Judge Aileen Cannon ruled federal prosecutors can't keep a list of potential Trump witnesses secret.

Cannon reject special counsel Jack Smith's efforts to file the list of 84 possible witnesses under seal.

News organizations, led by The Times and CNN, have also opposed Smith's efforts to shield the names.

US District Judge Aileen Cannon ruled on Monday that special counsel Jack Smith cannot file under seal the names of 84 potential witnesses who may offer incriminating testimony after former President Donald Trump's handling of classified documents.

As part of the conditions of Trump's release, the former president isn' t allowed to contact the potential witnesses about the case except through his counsel.

The federal government was then instructed to provide a list of names to Trump and the court, setting off the current episode.

The former president's own lawyers have strongly indicated that the potential witnesses could include senior officials and people who are still around Trump. »
