A federal judge has intervened and halted the DOJ investigation of Trump. She also granted his request for a special master in the case.
This is a major win for Trump and a huge loss for the Democrats.
You love to see it.

Judge Suspends DOJ Investigation of Trump, Grants Special Master Request
A federal judge on Monday granted former President Donald Trump’s request that a special master review items the FBI seized from Trump’s Mar-a-Lago residence and also halted the Department of Justice’s (DOJ) use of the items for “investigative purposes.”
U.S. District Judge Aileen Cannon, a Trump-appointed judge, ruled that a special master will be appointed to review the seized items to determine if any are personal items or items subject to claims of attorney-client privilege or executive privilege.
Cannon also ruled that the DOJ must suspend its use of Trump’s items for “investigative purposes” while the special master conducts its review, but also noted that the Office of the Director of National Intelligence could continue its “classification review and/or intelligence assessment.”
Cannon wrote that the court was “mindful of the need to ensure at least the appearance of fairness and integrity under the extraordinary circumstances presented” in granting Trump’s request.
She added that there was a risk of the DOJ leaking materials that would cause harm to the former president.
“In addition to being deprived of potentially significant personal documents, which alone creates a real harm, Plaintiff faces an unquantifiable potential harm by way of improper disclosure of sensitive information to the public,” Cannon wrote.
People on the left are losing their minds over this.
A reminder that Judge Cannon never should have taken this case. It was in the hands of the magistrate judge, she was picked by Trump’s lawyers solely because she was a Trumpist, in a jurisdiction nowhere near Mar-a-Lago. She has an effect engaged herself in obstruction of justice

Will Judge Cannon be impeached and removed by Congress for essentially aiding Trump in obstructing justice?
Instead, she will sit there for 30 years making awful decisions.
IF LIBERALS DON'T PACK THE COURTS LIBERALS DON'T GET THEIR AGENDA FOR 30 YEARS

DO NOT WAIT: After "Judge" Cannon's lawless interference to hide criminal Trump from the rule of law, it's simple:
ARREST. TRUMP. NOW.
WHILE. WE. STILL. CAN.
