Special master gives Trump's legal team just EIGHT DAYS to hand over proof the FBI 'planted' evidence when they raided Mar-a-Lago last month


The 'special master' going through documents seized at Mar-a-Lago has given Donald Trump's lawyers eight days to back up his claims that FBI agents planted material while carrying out a search of his club.


Judge Raymond Dearie included the order in a new 'case management plan' for processing through some 11,000 documents – and follows Trump repeatedly making the allegation publicly without offering evidence of FBI misconduct.


'No later than September 30, 2022, Plaintiff shall submit a declaration or affidavit that includes each of the following factual matters,' the judge wrote, including 'a list of any specific items set forth in the Detailed Property Inventory that Plaintiff asserts were not seized from the Premises on August 8, 2022.'


The inventory lists items that FBI agents catalogued following the August 8 search of Trump's private club in West Palm Beach, Florida. The Justice Department says that included more than 100 documents marked 'classified,' with some bearing top secret markings.


Trump, in an interview with Fox News host Sean Hannity, claims he 'declassified everything,' which appears to contradict his claim that the material was planted. Dearie, a senior federal judge in New York, has also pushed Trump's team to provide evidence that he had done so.


Trump made his latest allegations of planting evidence, which would be a crime, shortly after telling Hannity that perhaps the FBI was looking for Hillary Clinton's deleted emails during the search.


'The problem that you have is they go into rooms – they won’t let anybody near – they wouldn’t even let them in the same building,' he said of his own attorneys.


'Did they drop anything on those piles? Or did they do it later? There’s no chain of custody here with them,' Trump said.


'Wouldn’t that be on videotape, potentially?' Hannity asked him. Trump told him that the FBI asked him to turn off security cameras during the search but that they were kept running.


'No, I don’t think so. I mean, they were in a room,' Trump said, brushing off the idea.


Some of Trump's lawyers have made similar claims.

REVEALED: United Airlines grounded 25 Boeing 777-200s after failing to check their wings - days before flight from Newark forced into emergency landing due to a 'hydraulic issue'


  • United Airlines has grounded 25 of its Boeing 777-200 airplanes from service


  • Airline discovered it had failed to perform required inspections on the wing leading-edge panels, a U.S. regulator said


  • The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) said the airline disclosed the issue to the agency and proposed a plan to complete the inspections


  • United said that it had canceled some flights Monday night and Tuesday morning to conduct inspections but does not expect to cancel additional flights


United grounded dozens of the planes after realizing that some of its aircraft had not undergone required inspections of the front edges of the wings, or the wing slats.


It led to the airline canceling flights on Monday night and Tuesday morning. Those passengers affected were rebooked.


But on Wednesday night, a 777-200 aircraft that had been cleared to fly was forced to turn back after taking off from Newark Airport in New Jersey following an issue with its hydraulic system. The wing slats are part of the hydraulic system.


The FAA has launched an investigation into the incident but United has not commented if the issue is at all connected to the grounding of similar aircraft.


The Federal Aviation Administration explained how United grounded 25 of the jets after discovering it had failed to inspect slats on the wing edges that are used during takeoffs and landings.


The FAA said United reported the issue, and the FAA is reviewing circumstances that led to the missed inspections.

FTC says Bezos, Amazon CEO must testify in Prime membership investigation


The Federal Trade Commission (FTC) on Wednesday ordered Amazon founder Jeff Bezos and CEO Andy Jassy to testify in an investigation of the company’s Prime membership program.


Amazon had requested that the FTC cancel its subpoenas of Bezos and Jassy, arguing that the two executives would not have unique knowledge about Prime enrollment and cancellation, which are the focus of the FTC’s investigation.


The commissioners rejected Amazon’s request, along with several others that sought to limit or quash the FTC’s demands as part of the investigation.


“Amazon provides no reason why the Commission must accept anything less than all the relevant testimony it can obtain from these two witnesses,” the commissioners said in Wednesday’s order.


The FTC first began investigating the Amazon Prime membership program in March 2021 over concerns that Amazon was enrolling customers in Prime without their “prior express informed consent” and did not provide customers with an easy way to stop the recurring charges.


Amazon complied with the FTC’s initial requests for information. However, the commission ramped up its investigation after a March article from Insider suggested that the company “knowingly tricked people” into signing up for Prime.


In June, the FTC requested more information from Amazon and asked several current and former Amazon employees, including Bezos and Jassy, to testify.
