Appeals Court Says DOJ Can Continuing Using Classified Documents in Trump Probe
An appeals court late Wednesday granted the Justice Department’s request to retain control of classified material seized at former President Donald Trump’s Mar-a-Lago resort, a major win for the government to continue its criminal investigation into the handling of those materials.
In a 29-page decision, the 11th Circuit US Court of Appeals in Atlanta lifted an earlier order from a federal judge that barred federal agents from using nearly 100 classified documents seized as part of an investigation into whether there were any national-security risks. . Mr Trump’s Florida home was exposed by the way highly sensitive government materials were kept.
