WHAT’S NEXT? Department of Justice done reviewing Trump-FBI raid documents

Published

on

After court calls for an independent special master, the DOJ says their team is finished looking through seized materials

In a court filing on Monday, the Justice Department has announced they have already finished reviewing the documents seized from former U.S. President Donald Trump’s private residence, Mar-a-Lago.

The DOJ also stated that they identified a “limited set” of documents that could include information protected by attorney-client privilege.

The move comes on the heels of the court issuing a preliminary order to appoint a special master to go through the documents.

In a separate filing, the DOJ said they would provide more information—however, prior to the court issuing the preliminary order for a special master—a “privilege review team” already went through the documents.

Some officials say a special master is an independent, court-appointed individual who oversees how the documents are handled and reviewed. While a privilege review team is made up of federal personnel—not involved with the investigation—tasked with the role of identifying privileged information.

Many have questioned the timing of the unprecedented and controversial early morning raid on Trump’s exclusive beach club.

Trump’s team has argued that the government’s decision to carry out the raid on Aug. 8—mere months before November’s all-important midterm elections—”involved political calculations aimed at diminishing the leading voice in the Republican Party, President Trump.”

The FBI says it searched Mar-a-Lago as part of an investigation into whether Trump mishandled classified White House records.

Trump and his team continue to dispute the classification and say they believe the documents, information, and records have been declassified.

The next hearing in the case has been scheduled for Thursday at the federal courthouse in West Palm Beach, Florida.

A helicopter carrying Iranian President Ebrahim Raisi and his foreign minister crashed on Sunday as it was crossing mountain terrain in heavy fog.

The official said the lives of Raisi and Foreign Minister Hossein Amirabdollahian were “at risk following the helicopter crash”, which happened on the way back from a visit to the border with Azerbaijan in Iran’s northwest.

“We are still hopeful but information coming from the crash site is very concerning,” the official told Reuters, speaking on condition of anonymity.

State TV quoted an official as saying at least one passenger and one crew member had been in contact with rescuers. It also said the helicopter had been found, though Iran’s Red Crescent denied this report.

Iranian Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, who holds ultimate power with a final say on foreign policy and Iran’s nuclear programme, sought to reassure Iranians, saying there would be no disruption to state affairs. #iran #trending

Published

on

Australia’s multimillion-dollar campaign to attract Hollywood productions to its shores appears to be paying off.

The allure of Australia lies not only in its picturesque locations but also in its competitive financial incentives.

The government offers generous rebates and tax breaks to international productions, making it an attractive proposition for filmmakers looking to maximise their budgets.

Despite the recent intake of Hollywood productions down under such as ‘The Fall Guy’ and ‘Furiosa: A Mad Max Saga’, Aussie independents are still finding the space to carve their own creative path.

Rob Fantozzi joined the program to discuss the latest in Hollywood, and showcased his own upcoming project – ‘Omerta‘. #featured
