The Wall Street Journal: Justice Department wants its appeal in Trump documents case to be fast tracked


The Justice Department is seeking to fast-track its appeal of a ruling that delayed its investigation into documents seized at former President Donald Trump’s Mar-a-Lago home, making clear that prosecutors aren’t done challenging U.S. District Judge Aileen Cannon’s handling of the case.

In a motion filed on Friday evening, the Justice Department asked the 11th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals to set an expedited schedule in the appeal.

The Justice Department’s appeal, lodged earlier this month, challenges Cannon’s decision to halt the criminal investigation for months so that a court-appointed arbiter known as a “special master” could review evidence.

The Justice Department already scored a preliminary win at the 11th Circuit on Sept. 21, when the court put part of Cannon’s injunction on hold. The court said the government could resume reviewing roughly 100 documents marked as classified, removing those documents from the special master’s review.

In Friday’s filing, prosecutors said they continued to be harmed by Cannon’s injunction.
