The Justice Department has appealed to the court in former President Donald Trump’s special master case to expedite the proceedings.
The move goes after District Court Judge Aileen Cannon in a new motion against the 11th Circuit Court of Appeals.

The motions panel concluded that Plaintiff’s uncontested failure to make a showing as to the first factor outlined in Richey “is reason enough to conclude that the district court abused its discretion in exercising equitable jurisdiction here,'” the appeal states.
“Although the panel’s determination related specifically to the documents bearing classification markings, its reasoning arguably applies more broadly. If this Court agrees that the district court lacked jurisdiction, further proceedings before the special master and district court would end,” it adds.
Department of Justice officials argued in a motion filed Friday that the appointment of the special master is still hindering its investigation. https://t.co/Trgf9Viqip

“DOJ officials are arguing that they must have access to unclassified material confiscated at Donald Trump’s Mar-a-Lago residence and resort by the FBI earlier this month to better assess the classified — including top secret — files they’re examining,” HuffPost reported.
“They also need to examine all the records for possible clues as to how the documents may have been transported and accessed, officials said,” it added.
The DOJ is doing its best to get access to the records in order to file charges before the mid-term election so Trump does not announce he will run for President again. https://t.co/j6ntUSHzTA #FoxNews

The appeal will now have to be considered in an attempt to push the case ahead of the November midterms.
The Biden administration has already politicized the FBI with its raid. It is now doing something similar in its actions through the courts.
Trump’s team continues to face attacks every step as he fights back for a potential battle in the 2024 election.
