Judge Denies DOJ Request To Limit View, Picks Trump’s Choice For Special Master

Wow, oh wow, how elections matter.

For those affiliated, in any way with former President Donald J. Trump, liberal judges have universally allowed prosecutors access to requested information while rejecting Executive Prillege requests.

This is why, when able, liberals “judge shop” to determine where to file their cases, believing they will most likely get the desired outcomes they are seeking.

On the other hand, when they have to argue in front of judges, like Aileen Mercedes Cannon, who serves on a U.S. District Court, liberals are finding that the Constitution still exists and is in force. She was nominated by President Donald Trump for the Southern District of Florida opening. and was confirmed by the U.S. Senate in 2020.

Judge Cannon was on the bench to hear arguments from former President Trump’s legal team concerning the need for a Special Master to review the documents taken during the FBI’s raid of Trump’s Mar-a-Lago private residence.

Cannon ruled in favor of their request and has tapped a senior federal judge to serve as special master and review the materials seized in the August FBI raid on former President Donald Trump’s Florida residence.

Cannon has appointed Raymond Dearie, a senior U.S. district judge for the Eastern District of New York, to serve as special master on Thursday. Trump’s legal team recommended Dearie as one of its preferred candidates for the position, and the Department of Justice (DOJ) later approved of Dearie as well.

Dearie is well respected and experienced by both sides of the political aisle.

He was originally nominated to the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of New York in 1986 by then-President Ronald Reagan. He later served seven years on the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court (FISC), during which time Dearie approved a flawed FBI surveillance application for Trump campaign adviser Carter Page, according to Fox News.

“The Special Master shall review all of the materials seized during the August 8, 2022 execution of a court-authorized search warrant on the premises” of Trump’s residence at Mar-a-Lago, Cannon wrote in a Thursday order. Dearie must be given access to all materials seized by the FBI, including a number of documents that the government claims are classified and which served as the basis for the raid.

In an additional order published Thursday, Cannon denied the DOJ a request for a partial stay on her earlier decision confirming her intention to appoint a special master. The government had asked that the FBI be allowed to continue its criminal investigation involving the classified documents retrieved from Mar-a-Lago and to exempt those documents from special master review.

Cannon gave the special master a deadline of November 30 to finish his review and make recommendations about the materials. Dearie is authorized to review the materials and will serve as a mediator between the FBI and Trump’s legal team on which documents are privileged, and if they rightfully belong to the government or Trump.

The special master is tasked with “conducting a privilege review of the Seized Materials and making recommendations to the Court as to any privilege disputes between the parties (including any formal assertions of executive privilege)” and “identifying personal items/documents and Presidential Records in the Seized Materials and making recommendations to the Court as to any categorization disputes between the parties,” the order states.

In addition to overseeing privilege disputes and making recommendations to the court, Dearie is also charged with ensuring that the inventory list the DOJ supplied to the court of the materials seized in the raid “represents the full and accurate extent of the property seized from the premises.”

In addition, the Trump legal team will be able to get an opportunity to review all the seized documents.

  • Cannon’s order gives Trump’s legal team access to the documents and other materials seized by the FBI. The FBI must “provide to Plaintiff’s counsel copies of documents not marked as classified,” the order states.
  • For documents that are marked classified, the FBI must make those available for Trump’s counsel to view “with controlled access conditions (including necessary clearance requirements) and under the supervision of the Special Master.”
