DOJ opposes special master in Trump case, alleges classified materials were concealed

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."
