WEST PALM BEACH, Fla.--The government must let you see at least part of the affidavit used to justify a search at former Pres. Donald Trump’s Mar a Lago estate, ruled a federal judge Thursday.

Some parts of the document will have to be redacted, or blacke4d out.

That judge heard arguments from both sides, with one side demanding the document be released in its entirety, or unsealed. The Dept. of Justice wanted the document completely held back, with the argument that it contained sensitive information on their investigation into whether Trump mishandled classified documents.

Judge Bruce Reinhart gave the DOJ one week to comply. Between now and then they’ll have to send the judge proposals on what they believe should be redacted. Reinhart promised that his review would be a careful and considered process.
