Government prosecutors on special counsel Jack Smith’s team have filed papers asking Judge Aileen Cannon to reconsider her ruling that would allow former President Donald Trump’s lawyers to reveal the identities of certain witnesses in a classified documents case.

The prosecutors argue that publicly docketing unredacted discovery material would expose witnesses to significant risks of threats and harassment.

“That discovery material, if publicly docketed in unredacted form as the Court has ordered, would disclose the identities of numerous potential witnesses, along with the substance of the statements they made to the FBI or the grand jury, exposing them to significant and immediate risks of threats, intimidation, and harassment, as has already happened to witnesses, law enforcement agents, judicial officers, and Department of Justice employees whose identities have been disclosed in cases in which defendant Trump is involved,” prosecutors wrote.

They assert that Cannon applied the wrong legal standard and request reconsideration to correct the error.

The legal development is significant as it highlights potential risks to witnesses and the ongoing controversy surrounding rulings in the case that have benefitted Trump.
