A federal appeals panel overruled a decision that was temporarily blocking the investigation from the Department of Justice into documents seized at Mar-a-Lago.
The three-judge panel of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 11th Circuit issued the ruling Wednesday evening.
Previously, a judge sided with attorneys representing former President Donald Trump and appointed a special master to independently review the documents seized and temporarily blocked the DOJ investigation. Liberals and other critics of the former president accused the Trump-appointed judge of being biased in her ruling.
The panel said in their 29-page ruling that Trump “has not even attempted to show that he has a need to know the information contained in the classified documents. Nor has he established that the current administration has waived that requirement for these documents.”
The Justice Department had argued that a special master was unnecessary because Trump could not declassify documents as a former president. (Read more from “Appeals Court Allows DOJ to Continue Investigation Into Documents Seized at Mar-a-Lago” HERE)
