The US Justice Department is investigating Trump’s actions in removing government records from his White House residence after he left January 2021, and storing them at Mar-a-Lago.

A federal judge granted Trump’s request for a special master, to review records seized during the FBI search. This move is likely to delay Justice Department’s criminal investigation.
