Appeals court panel allows DOJ to continue reviewing documents from Trump raid
Two of the three appellate judges are Trump appointees.
A panel of three judges for the 11th Circuit Court of Appeals has allowed the Department of Justice to continue reviewing documents the FBI seized from Donald Trump's Mar-a-Lago estate, upending part of an earlier ruling from the district court judge.
U.S. District Judge Aileen Cannon earlier this month enjoined further federal review of the documents and appointed New York Judge Raymond Dearie as special master to independently review them.
"[Trump] has not even attempted to show that he has a need to know the information contained in the classified documents," the panel wrote, according to Politico. "Nor has he established that the current administration has waived that requirement for these documents."
Two of the three appellate judges are Trump appointees, as is Cannon. The panel ruled unanimously.
