The DoJ filing effectively dismantles Trump's request for injunctive relief, a special master, and return of the seized materials.
It agrees to the detailed inventory of those materials, and the return of non-evidentiary personal materials, as well as the adjudication of limited materials that may involve attorney-client privelege.
1. Trump has no standing to request a special master, based on the lack of any materials involving a third party. All the records seized were related to Trump alone. There is no attorney-client privelege to protect, apart from a limited subset already identified, for Trump's own counsel.
2. Trump has no standing to invoke executive privilege against the executive branch of government. Executive privilege protects the office and the republic, not the individual.
3. Trump has no standing to declare property rights, since the Presidential Records Act makes clear that records belong to the government, not to him.
4. Trump has no standing to request return of materials based on Fourth Amendment concerns, since the warrant authorized that any box found to contain presidential records, could be seized in it's entirety. This was to preserve evidence of the manner of storage and concealment.
5. Trump's filing is too late to request an injunction, as the FBI review has already been completed.
The filing contains a photo of Top Secret documents lying scattered on the floor of the closet in Trump's office. Also points out that some materials are so highly classified, that the FBI had to find agents with the necessary clearance to review them. And that any special master would also need the highest clearance.
