The intelligence community is restarting work on both the classification review and the so-called damage assessment related to former President Donald Trump’s storage of classified materials at his Mar-a-Lago residence and resort, according to a statement of the Office of the Director of National Intelligence.
The ODNI had temporarily paused its work earlier this month after US District Judge Aileen Cannon issued an order that halted any use of the seized materials for the Justice Department’s criminal investigation. Although she said that the intelligence community’s assessment could continue, the DOJ maintained that the two efforts were inextricably intertwined and halting one halted the other.
