(ANSA) – NEW YORK, AUG 22 – The FBI blitz in Mar-a-Lago was dictated by “politics” and “politics cannot be allowed to have an impact on justice. Trump is clearly the frontrunner for Republican primaries and the 2024 general election. Beyond that, his endorsements in the 2022 mid-term elections were decisive for Republican candidates. ” This was stated by the lawyers of the former US president in the legal action launched against the American government to request the appointment of a ‘special master’ to examine the documents searched by the FBI in Mar-a-Lago.
The FBI raid was “illegal and unconstitutional.
We are taking the necessary steps to get the documents back, which would have been delivered without the despicable raid. I will never stop fighting for the Americans. “Trump states, noting that the motion in the Florida court was filed” to assert my values on the unnecessary “FBI blitz.
“The government has long been treating President Donald Trump unfairly,” the tycoon’s lawyers say in the motion filed before Trump-appointed Southern District Judge Aileen Cannon. If Cannon agrees, the process of reviewing the documents seized by the FBI in Mar-a-Lago will lengthen and slow down the government’s investigation into whether she has obstructed a federal investigation.
In other high-profile Trump-related cases, special masters have been appointed, for example for former lawyer Michael Cohen. Trump’s request for a special master’s degree is not unusual. What is not common, CNN reports, is that the former president’s lawyers presented it two weeks after the FBI blitz. This could signal a behind-the-scenes disagreement among lawyers on how to proceed.
