visit the justice department is fighting back in the legal battle over top-secret documents seized at mar-a-lago. doj lawyers plan to appeal a trump appointed judges ruling that blocks investigators from retrieving the stash of files, unless the judge makes big changes. the judge ordered a pause in effect, until a neutral special master can sift through all of the documents and pick out anything covered by executive privilege, therefore, off- limits. in a court filing today, doj lawyers argued summing down a criminal investigation involving risk to national security would cause irreparable harm to the public and the government.
12:25 am
the justice department is asking the judge to allow investigators to keep reviewing more than 100 classified documents. a special master could still look through other evidence, but not the classified material. if the judge does not agree with the request, the doj is threatening to go to the appeals court. for legal analysis, former prosecutor bernardo mariotti is here. this doesn't look like a clear appeal. what exactly is the department doing here? >> they are trying to give her a path out of a ruling that is very questionable. what they are telling her that we are going to give you a part of what you ordered. if you decide you aren't going to let us proceed with review of these classified documents or if you are going to have the
12:26 am
special master review them, we will appeal this. that says the documents are so highly classified, that the government doesn't even want special master taking a look at these documents, and they think the continued evaluation of these documents is important. >> if the judge doesn't back off on the order, take you out, as he put it, does this mean we would see a long drawn out side? isn't that what doj is trying to avoid? >> i think what doj is doing and, i think it is fairly smart on their part, they are going to agree to the appointment of a special master at a certain aspects. aztec temple, attorney-client document privileges. they will return a lot of the property to basically narrow the issues and get it down to something that is very hard for the court of appeals to rule against them on. that is, their use of their own
12:27 am
classified documents, which are government property and not covered by any privilege and are not owned by the former president. i think they are basically trying to keep the process moving and give themselves the strongest possible grounds for appeal. >> renato mariotti, thank you. a public official in las vegas arrested and accused of murdering an investigative reporter for a newspaper who wrote a series of exposis about him. investigators say rob telles with the disguised killer who stabbed the reporter to death at his home. this is the reporter . the las vegas journal jeff gurman. he cover crime, corruption, and the mob in vegas for tickets. the suspected killer, telles, recently lost reelection after he wrote articles the detailed allegations of a hostile work environment in his office. included an alleged inappropriate relationship with a staffer. telles printed about the reviews and mark mocked him.
