The Justice Department took action against Donald Trump, former president of the United States, on Friday.
They filed a motion seeking to block former President Donald Trump from releasing any classified materials that the DOJ has to share with Trump’s legal team during the prosecution in the classified documents case.
According to the Department of Justice, these documents contained “information pertaining” ongoing investigations that could be used against people who haven’t been charged.
Bruce Reinhart will review and approve the proposed protective order. The protective order would allow Trump to only view the 31 DOJ documents used in this case with his lawyers present.
“Defendants are only allowed to access Discovery Materials if they are directly supervised by Defense Counsel or an employee. Defense Counsel will store all notes made by Defendants about Discovery Materials.
The motion is similar to that filed by the plaintiffs in New York’s defamation suit, which prohibits the disclosure of evidence.
The motion asks that the documents remain secret or “not be distributed on any news platform, social media platform, without prior notice by the United States or approval from the Court.”
Judge Aileen sent the motion to Bruce Reinhart, who approved the initial search of Mar-a-Lago.
Trump was charged in Miami with 37 counts earlier this week.
CNN and MSNBC have acknowledged that they stopped covering his defense and the love is shown to him by supporters, arguing he might not be telling the truth or it’s “dangerous”.
