After months, Judge Cannon agrees to shield Trump witness names

U.S. District Court Judge Aileen M. Cannon agreed Tuesday to end a long-running dispute with prosecutors over whether government-agent witnesses in Donald Trump's classified documents criminal trial should be publicly identified in court filings.

Her order was the second time this month she has criticized Justice Department lawyers while ruling mostly in their favor.

Special counsel Jack Smith has spent months trying to convince Cannon to keep under seal the names of FBI agents, Secret Service agents and other potential witnesses in the case, which charges Trump with mishandling classified documents and obstructing government efforts to retrieve them from Mar-a-Lago, his Florida home and private club.
