A team has completed a review of material seized at Mar-a-Lago and found that some of the materials may contain information protected by attorney-client privilege, the Justice Department said in a court filing Monday.

As requested by a federal judge over the weekend, the team will file a public response to former President Trump’s motion for the appointment of a “special master” to oversee material seized from his residence.

The team “is in the process of following procedures … to address potential privilege disputes, if any,” the department said in its filing Monday. Along with the Office of the Director of National Intelligence (ODNI), the DOJ continues to review and classify the record, the presentation continued. And, echoing what the agency’s spokesperson told NPR on Saturday, ODNI continues to assess how the release of these materials could jeopardize national security.

The development comes after a federal judge said Saturday she is leaning toward granting Trump’s request to appoint a special master to oversee the FBI’s search for more than a dozen boxes seized from Mar-a-Lago, and told the Justice Department to submit “a more detailed list” of items seized at Mar-a-Lago.

Lawyers for the government and for Trump are due in court Thursday to discuss his request for a special master to review the documents.
