Whether the DOJ likes it or not, the Trump investigation just got the brakes slammed on it.
The appointment of a Special Master by Judge Cannon means the DOJ can no longer continue to review the documents seized in the Trump raid.
Now, both sides must come together to appoint a neutral third party to review all documents.
What is more likely, however, is that the DOJ will appeal the ruling and hope it gets a liberal-appointed judge to overturn the ruling.
We know why Trump wants the Special Master appointed.
They are hoping to find documents that go well beyond the scope as well as more privileged documents.
However, Trump will have a problem proving that he had a right to have those classified documents.
We can look at judgments by Justice Scalia, a constitutional conservative, that would show the moment Trump left the White House, he lost all privilege.
However, there is also precedent used in the Nixon case that we expect Trump’s team to draw upon, so this gets really muddy.
The real challenge for the DOJ is in moving forward with the raid before getting a formal court decision on the matter.
With so many conflicting opinions being circulated, I would not even venture to guess how this will all come out in the wash other than what I have stated before.
Eventually, I believe Trump will be indicted to eliminate him from the 2024 ticket.
