Hurry Up and Wait: Judge Raymond Dearie Is Appointed Special Master TO EXAMINE Mar-a Lago Documents

After Judge Aileen Cannon appointed Trumps special master pick, Judge Raymond Dearie, and continued to block the Justice Department’s overview of classified documents bought at Mar-a-Lago on Thursday, the DOJ asked a federal appeals court on Friday to remain the judges order and invite the review.

The district court has entered an unprecedented order enjoining the Executive Branchs usage of its highly classified records in a criminal investigation with direct implications for national security, the Friday filing said, The federal government and the general public would suffer irreparable harm absent a stay of the order.

For background, on September 5, Judge Cannon granted Trumps request to temporarily prohibit the Justice Department from continuing to examine the classified materials, while still allowing the Office of the Director of National Intelligence to keep its examination. Days down the road September 8, the Justice Department said it could appeal Cannons ruling, saying that it’ll seek rest from america Court of Appeals for the Eleventh Circuit if the court didnt grant a stay by September 15. So that it did. (In the Eleventh Circuit, six of the 11 justices were nominated by Trump, in accordance with The Hill.)

On Thursday, Cannon denied the DOJs motion, writing: The Court will not think it is appropriate to simply accept the Governments conclusions on these important and disputed issues without further review by way of a neutral alternative party within an expedited and orderly fashion.

In Thursdays ruling, Judge Cannon also selected among former President Donald Trumps nomineesJudge Deariefor special master to conduct the overview of the documents seized in the August 8 search of Mar-a-Lago. Judge Dearie was the former chief judge of the united states District Court for the Eastern District of NY and served as a former judge of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court. Legal experts predicted Dearie will be chosen for the work.

Judge Cannon was appointed by Trump in 2020. Legal experts have repeatedly questioned Cannons rulings. John Dean, the former White House counsel for President Nixon, tweeted: Judge Cannon is treating Trump just like a King temporarily out of power. It really is disgusting!

Former Mueller prosecutor Andrew Weissmann said on MSNBC on Friday he thought Judge Cannon is giving Trump preferential treatment, which “is really a violation of a judge’s oath of office to take care of every individual exactly the same. The truth that he could be the former president doesn’t mean he get treated worse, nonetheless it will not mean, as she did, that he’s treated better.”

Dearie has recently requested all the lawyers to meet up at the Brooklyn federal courthouse on Tuesday to go over the document review. Dearie will undoubtedly be tasked with reviewing the 11,000 records to find out whether they participate in the former president, and if they are protected by executive privilege or attorney-client privilege.
