Biden's Department of Justice (DOJ) demanded that a Florida court issue a gag order on Trump in regard to the ongoing investigation of the documents seized at Mar-a-Lago.
The suggested order will be reviewed by Judge Bruce Reinhart, who was also involved in the approval of the original raid on Mar-a-Lago. This will prevent Trump from speaking publicly about any documentation in the case.
The order demands that the 31 DOJ documents to be used in the case “shall not be disclosed to the public or the news media, or disseminated on any news or social media platform” unless otherwise given permission from the court.
The order allows Trump the ability to access the DOJ documents for the case only while he is "under the direct supervision of Defense Counsel or a member of Defense Counsel’s staff."
Copies of the documents may not be retained by Trump, however, "[d]efendants may take notes regarding Discovery Materials taking will be permitted." In addition to this, any "such notes shall be stored securely by Defense Counsel,” the DOJ wrote.
The agency said the documents “include information pertaining to ongoing investigations” which could be used in other cases against people involved who have yet to be charged.
The filing indicates he will still have access to the documents that he was storing at Mar-a-Lago during the case. Some of these were labeled classified.
A recent Harris poll found that 55% of Americans said the indictment was politically motivated. This same poll concluded that 72% of Americans believe that Hillary Clinton mishandled classified information and 65% thought the same about President Biden.
A similar order was placed on Trump in the Manhattan trial involving Stormy Daniels and filed by New York district attorney Alvin Bragg. New York state prosecutors made the request in the case as it involves a 34-count indictment of the former president.
