A judge has ordered the unsealing of documents filed by Special Counsel Jack Smith in the case involving former President Donald Trump’s classified documents.

Trump is facing charges of withholding and concealing classified material, and the case will be tried under the rules of the Classified Information Procedures Act.

The judge’s order for unsealing documents follows a refusal to set a deadline for Trump’s disclosure of classified information for trial, potentially pushing back the trial date to March 2024. (Trending: Tucker Reveals The Moment He Became A Full-Blown Trump Supporter)

Judge Aileen Cannon ordered the unsealing of documents filed by Special Prosecutor Jack Smith in the case, making them public, adding that she was “mindful of the strong presumption in favor of public access to judicial documents.”

Jack Smith asked that the filing be kept under seal because it contained government plans to delete “highly sensitive classified information” from sharable discovery.

“The defendants did not oppose the Government’s request, but reserved the right to challenge them later,” wrote Jack Smith.

“This is the same information that the Government proposed redacting. Because the Court rejected that position and ordered the Government to provide unredacted versions of the two docket entries to defense counsel, there is no justification for keeping them from the public.”
