Last week, U.S. District Judge Aileen Cannon temporarily blocked the Justice Department from using the records until they're reviewed by a special master.

Later that week, the DOJ challenged Judge Cannon's order.

It argued that stopping the executive branch from looking at those records would cause "immediate and serious harms to the government and the public.".

The DOJ also asked for a stay on part of the judge's ruling so that the government could look at the records before a special master delivers a verdict.

Trump's lawyers said the DOJ's requested stay would "presuppose the outcome, at least as regards to what it deems are 'classified records'... ... and there "is no indication any purported 'classified records' were disclosed to anyone." .

Trump's lawyers also claim that the Presidential Records Act gives Trump the "unfettered right of access to his Presidential records even though he may not 'own' them." .

Trump's team is also demanding public transparency throughout the case.

As this Court correctly observed, a criminal investigation of this import—an investigation of a former President of the United States by the administration of his political rival—requires enhanced vigilance to ensure fairness, transparency, and maintenance of the public trust, Filing signed by lawyer Christopher Kise, via NBC News.
