Records seized by the FBI from Donald Trump’s Florida home can be reviewed by a neutral third party at a rate of about 500 documents each business day, the US Justice Department said in a court filing, as the former president’s lawyers sought to put off a formal claim that he declassified them.

Lawyers for Trump and the government on Monday night each made proposals for how New York federal judge Raymond Dearie, who was selected as “special master” to perform the review, will conduct the process. Dearie will discuss details of the plan at a hearing in Brooklyn federal court Tuesday afternoon.
