On Wednesday, a protective order was granted by a federal judge in the Mar-a-Lago case, allowing the distribution of classified evidence as the Justice Department moves forward with its case against ex-President Trump concerning the mismanagement of confidential government data.

Judge Aileen Cannon’s decision doesn’t consider Trump’s suggestion to repurpose an area within his residence as a Sensitive Compartmented Information Facility (SCIF) to review these materials. Instead, the decision permits a principal information security official, an impartial entity chosen to oversee the case’s classified details, to organize access for Trump and his legal representatives to evaluate the evidence.

The order predominantly utilizes typical verbiage seen in protective orders for classified matters, highlighting the potential legal consequences of unauthorized revelations or mismanagement of classified data.
