DOJ opposes special master in Trump case, alleges classified materials were concealed
New DOJ filing includes photo of alleged classified materials recovered from Trump's office during the raid earlier this month.
The Biden Justice Department late Tuesday told a federal judge it opposes naming a special master to review evidence taken from Donald Trump's Florida home, alleging there may have been an effort to conceal classified documents after the president's lawyers received a grand jury subpoena earlier this summer.
DOJ "developed evidence that government records were likely concealed and removed" from a storage locker in Mar-a-Lago and "that efforts were likely taken to obstruct the government's investigation," prosecutors argued in the new filing.
In its 36-page filing, DOJ said the former president's request for a special master "fails for multiple, independent reasons," including that it would "harm national security interests."
