On Thursday, a federal judge issued an order requiring the Justice Department to submit proposed redactions before he would make at least part of the affidavit that supported the search warrant for former President Donald Trump's estate in Florida public.

The judge also committed to making public at least some of the information in the affidavit.

After the FBI seized classified and top secret information during a search at Trump's Mar-a-Lago estate the previous week, U.S. Magistrate Judge Bruce Reinhart gave prosecutors a week to submit a copy of the affidavit with proposed redactions for the information it wants to keep secret.

This came after the FBI seized the information during a search at Trump's Mar-a-Lago estate.

Fierce Department of Justice

After a number of news organizations, including The Associated Press, made requests to unseal more information connected to the search that took place the previous week, including the affidavit, a hearing was held on Thursday as a result.

It is quite possible that it will include important information on the investigation being conducted by the Justice Department to determine whether or not Trump improperly maintained and handled secret and sensitive government materials.

The Department of Justice has been fiercely opposed to making the affidavit public, stating that doing so would damage the investigation that is already underway, would reveal the identity of witnesses, and might discourage others from coming forward and cooperating with the agency.

The lawyers representing the news organizations, on the other hand, claimed that the inquiry being conducted by the Justice Department should be made public due to the extraordinary nature of the probe.

“You can’t trust what you can’t see,” said Chuck Tobin, a lawyer representing the AP and several other news outlets.
