A federal judge has barred former President Donald Trump and his legal team from keeping or disclosing evidence in his case regarding classified documents prior to his trial.

In an order made public Monday,  U.S. Magistrate Judge Bruce Reinhart said Trump and his lawyers are not to share any information that investigators are soon to start handing over to them for discovery. The former President will also reportedly have limited access to what material he himself can see.

"The Discovery Materials, along with any information derived therefrom, shall not be disclosed to the public or the news media, or disseminated on any news or social media platform, without prior notice to and consent of the United States or approval of the Court," the filing states.
