The American Justice left this Thursday without effect the figure of the special expert appointed by a lower court to review the official documents found in the Florida mansion of former US President Donald Trump.
The Federal Court of Appeals for the United States 11th Circuit thus agreed with the Department of Justice, led by Democrat Merrick Garland, and that in October had requested that the order issued by a lower-ranking judge that led to the appointment of the independent expert be revoked.
That appointment had been one of Trump’s greatest judicial achievements in the judicial battle that he is having with the current US government in relation to those documents, since the expert was in charge of determining which papers the Executive could access in its investigation and which not.
The magistrates unanimously ruled that a lower court could not limit the investigation of the Justice Department in agreeing to Trump’s request to block investigators’ access to the records, as well as in the decision to appoint a special expert for the evaluation.
To date, the expert was reviewing the hundreds of documents marked as classified that were among the more than 13,000 that the FBI seized on August 8 during the search of Trump’s residence in Mar-a-Lago (Florida).
During the search, the FBI found classified and secret documents that Trump he allegedly took with him when he left the White House in January 2021.
