Trump Files Lawsuit to Block DOJ Review of Documents Seized in FBI Raid

Trump Files Lawsuit , to Block DOJ Review , of Documents Seized in FBI Raid.

On August 22, former President Donald Trump filed a lawsuit for a special watchdog to be appointed to review documents seized from his Florida home.


NBC reports that the lawsuit is the latest development in a criminal investigation into the removal of White House records when he left office in January 2021.

Trump's lawsuit suggests the August 8 FBI raid of his Mar-a-Lago home was politically motivated.

The legal action seeks to have the Department of Justice blocked from "further review of the seized materials" until a so-called special master is appointed to review the documents.

NBC reports that a special master is appointed in criminal cases where there is a concern that some material should not be viewed by investigators.


The material in question could be protected by attorney-client privilege or other factors that could weigh against it being used in prosecution.

Trump's suit accuses the federal government of violating his Fourth Amendment right against unreasonable search and seizure with the raid.


The suit also requests a detailed inventory of property seized and the return of anything that was not within the scope of the search warrant.

Law enforcement is a shield that protects Americans.

It cannot be used as a weapon for political purposes.
