Release of the redacted Trump search document is mandated by a federal judge.

Affidavit may reveal Trump's preservation of federal secrets at Mar-a-Lago.

Judge who authorised FBI search warrant ordered justice department to redact affidavit by Friday lunch.

In a two-page judgement, the court confined the justice department's redactions to grand jury materials.

The government has shown that its proposed redactions are carefully tailored to protect the investigation's integrity.

Trump's illegal retention of federal secrets at Mar-a-Lago might lead to espionage charges.

The justice department opposed unsealing the affidavit and only proposed redactions when required by Reinhart.

The affidavit's submission and partial distribution indicate a turning point in the investigation.

Trump has fired back at the justice department and on Monday filed a demand for a special master.

Reinhart's order came hours after the justice department submitted its requested redactions.
