The motion would be the former president’s first official legal action following the seizure last week by federal authorities of around 30 boxes of extremely sensitive documents from his Mar-a-Lago estate as part of a probe into the improper retention of state secrets.

 The FBI may have seized privileged information during the search, and the justice department shouldn’t be deciding what it can and cannot use in its investigation, according to the sources. As a result, the court should appoint a special master, who is typically a retired lawyer or judge.

On Friday night’s episode of the Mark Levin Show, the lead attorney for the former president, Trusty, stated that he was looking forward to a motion that would compel the justice department to reveal the “pre-raid” instructions given to the FBI agents who carried out the search warrant at Mar-a-Lago.

  The federal officers who carry out search warrants are frequently also part of a “taint team,” they must filter the information they take from a place in real-time, thus timing is crucial. Documents marked as classified are transmitted to the appropriate agencies for inspection.

 However, given the nearly two-week delay, prosecutors might have already gone through everything even if Trump had filed a motion at the time Trusty first suggested, and the court had barred the justice department from looking into the seized materials further until it had been screened by a special master.
