FAST FIVE: DOJ Seeks Another Delay In Turning Over Documents From Mar-a-Lago To Trump
But the government sought and received a delay of four days for the production.
DOJ lawyers said that the delay was warranted because of issues contracting a vendor to scan and store the materials.
None of the five vendors proposed by the government “were willing to be engaged by Plaintiff,” the lawyers said, citing attorneys for Trump.
To try to avoid further delay, the government is moving to contract directly with a vendor, instead of having Trump's team do so.
“Based on its prior experience and discussions today with the vendors, the government is highly confident at least one vendor will respond” and agree to perform the work, according to the DOJ.
