A judge has granted President Donald Trump's request to have a special master review the documents seized during the Mar-a-Lago raid.

Trump's motion to appoint a special master "to review the seized property for personal items and documents and potentially privileged material subject to claims of attorney client and/or executive privilege" by Judge Aileen Cannon.

The judge also "temporarily enjoins" the government from "reviewing and using the seized materials" pending the completion of the review, the Daily Mail reports.

The ruling, which was issued on Labor Day, grants Trump the ability to stall the fast-moving proceedings that have taken place since the raid on August 8.

The Trump legal team made its demand in a Florida court after the decision by another judge to release the heavily redacted affidavit that allowed the FBI to obtain a warrant to search the former president's residency.

The federal government responded by releasing a 36-page filing that claimed to reveal new information about the extent of classified material that agents found during the raid.

This is a breaking news story and will be updated.
