Special Master Ruling in FBI Raid Document Case appealed by DOJ
The former president called the search and seizure of records seized from his Mar-a-Lago home last month a "hoax" on Thursday.
After Trump-appointed District Judge Aileen Cannon ruled on the same day that an independent mediator should review classified materials recovered from the former president's Florida residence, the Department of Justice announced the same day that it would appeal the ruling.
“So now the FBI and Biden Department of ‘Justice’ leakers are going to spend Millions of Dollars, & vast amounts of Time and Energy, to appeal the order on the ‘Raid of Mar-a-Lago document hoax,’ … instead of fighting the record setting corruption and crime that is taking place right before their very eyes,” he wrote via social media app Truth Social on Sept. 8, praising his appointee as “a brilliant and courageous Judge.”
Ex-Director James Comey and ex-Deputy Director Andrew McCabe, along with former FBI officials, also featured in the former president's remarks.
“They leak, lie, plant fake evidence, allow the spying on my campaign, deceive the FISA [Foreign Intelligence Surveillance] Court, RAID, and Break-Into my home, lose documents, and then they ask me, as the 45th President of the United States, to trust them,” Trump said in the following post.
