The Department of Justice argued to special master Raymond Dearie that former President Donald Trump should have to categorize which documents were seized from Mar-a-Lago and address if any documents were not part of the FBI’s August raid on the Florida resort.

While combating objections from the Trump team, the DOJ argued in a filing to the special master that Trump must categorize the documents to avoid any confusion during the review.

JUSTICE DEPARTMENT REVEALS NEW INFORMATION ABOUT WHAT WAS TAKEN IN TRUMP MAR-A-LAGO RAID

“The verification required by Plaintiff of the Detailed Property Inventory is a condition precedent to the document categorization and privilege review. The Special Master needs to know that he is reviewing all of the materials seized from Mara-Lago on August 8, 2022 — and no additional materials — before he categorizes the seized documents and adjudicates privilege claims,” the DOJ said in the filing.

The department also asked for an additional day to find a document review vendor because none of the five proposed vendors were willing to work with Trump.

“Plaintiff informed us this morning that none of the five document-review vendors proposed by the government before last Tuesday’s preliminary conference were willing to be engaged by Plaintiff,” the DOJ said in the filing.
