DOJ Accepts Raymond Dearie as Special Master to Vet Classified Documents Held by Trump

HeadlineSep 13, 2022

The Justice Department said Monday it would accept Reagan-nominated federal former Judge Raymond Dearie as a special master to review hundreds of documents the FBI seized last month when it raided Trump’s Mar-a-Lago estate in Florida. Many of the files were marked “Top Secret.” Trump has argued he declassified all the documents before leaving office. The Justice Department says it may still appeal the decision to appoint a special master, which came from U.S. District Judge Aileen Cannon, who was nominated to the federal bench in 2020 by then-President Trump.
