    I wonder if the phrase "TOP SECRET" written in big red letters means these documents are classified.Department of Justice/Zuma Fight disinformation: Sign up for the free Mother Jones Daily newsletter and follow the news that matters.Donald Trump’s lawyers would like you to believe that the boxes the FBI seized from the former president’s Mar-a-Lago estate last month contain Schrödinger’s documents: simultaneously classified and unclassified. Trump has claimed he declassified the documents he took to Mar-a-Lago, but he has never produced a shred of evidence to support that claim. His lawyers have hinted he may have declassified the material, but they’ve been careful not to say so explicitly. In a court filing on Monday, they even asked Judge Raymond Dearie, the special master appointed to review the documents DOJ seized, not to make them address the issue, because Trump might be charged and they don’t want to tip their hand and detail “a defense to the merits of any subsequent indictment.” The Justice Department has a simpler position: Documents with classification markings are classified.  On Tuesday, Trump’s lawyers, while refusing to say...
    In a Brooklyn courtroom hearing held by Senior U.S. District Judge Raymond Dearie, the Trump handpicked “special master” appeared to signal the Trump team has little ground to stand on. Judge Dearie is tasked with determining which, if any of the more than 11,000 items federal agents seized from Mar-a-Lago should be returned to the former president, or be singled out over attorney-client privilege claims. He was directed to focus first on the 100 or so that DOJ wants to use to continue their investigation, and to use to determine how badly national security has been harmed. Trump is making many claims including that the items are covered by executive privilege, attorney-client privilege, were declassified, were reclassified as personal records, and others.

    Former President Donald Trump’s battle with the FBI over its search of Mar-a-Lago has moved from South Florida to New York City, where a court-appointed “special master” on Tuesday indicated he has a very simple test for whether he sides with the Department of Justice. The special master, Raymond J. Dearie, said Tuesday that if Trump’s lawyers don't officially counter whether the documents the former president took are classified, then Dearie will side with the DOJ. “As far as I'm concerned, that's the end of it,” he said. Dearie, a semi-retired federal judge in Brooklyn who’s playing the role of temporary referee, wants to speed up the process and get federal agents back on track. And while Trump has been alleging on social media that he already declassified the records he swiped from the White House, Dearie is demanding that Trump put up or shut up. The senior judge is asking that Trump’s team assert—in sworn affidavits where lies could mean jail time—whether or not Trump actually declassified them. Dearie said wasn’t going to “hurry,” but noted that time...
    L: Jeff Swensen/Getty Images R: Joe Raedle/Getty Images Journalists, political media figures, and other Twitter blue-checks say a new filing shows Team Trump’s selection of Judge Raymond Dearie as Special Master in the Mar-a-Lago probe is backfiring. In a new filing Monday, former President Donald Trump‘s legal team refused a requirement — set forth in Dearie’s draft plan — that Trump’s team provide details about Trump’s claim to have “declassified” documents that were seized during the FBI in the search of  Mar-a-Lago. According to a letter filed by Trump’s legal team, they won’t comply because they say it would weaken their case against a “subsequent indictment,” and they also complained about the deadlines set forth in the draft plan. Journalists and others are reading into the filing that Dearie — one of Team Trump’s two proposed candidates for Special Master — isn’t quite working out how they thought he would. In her latest Trumpworld scoop, New York Times correspondent and CNN analyst Maggie Haberman also wrote that “The first filings before Judge Raymond J. Dearie, the special master, suggested that the Trump legal...
    Share this: Attorneys for the United States and for former President Donald Trump will be in Brooklyn on Tuesday when they appear before Hon. Raymond Dearie, who was appointed special master on the case Matter of Trump v. USA. Judge Dearie, who was born in 1944 in Rockville Centre and graduated from St. John’s University School of Law, was appointed to the Eastern District of New York bench by President Ronald Reagan on February 3, 1986 and was confirmed by the Senate on March 14, 1986. He was previously chief judge of the court from 2007 until 2011 when he took senior status on April 3, 2011. Judge Dearie was appointed special master by Judge Aileen Cannon to review the documents seized during a court-approved search of the twice impeached former president’s home in August. Dearie has a deadline of November 30 to issue interim reports and recommendations as needed.
    A legal expert recently weighed in on Judge Raymond Dearie being appointed as the special master reviewing the government documents recovered from former President Donald Trump's Mar-a-Lago estate by the Federal Bureau of Investigations (FBI). During the same interview, Judge Aileen Cannon was also deeply criticized for admitting she'd forced the special master responsibility on Dearie. On Saturday, September 17, former U.S. Attorney Joyce Vance appeared on MSNBC News where she weighed in with her perspective during a discussion with host Ali Velshi. While she did praise Dearie's appointment, she wasn't exactly pleased with how the initiative was forced.

The former U.S. attorney also admitted that she sees the move by Trump's legal team as a stall tactic. "Judge Dearie is a fine man of the great reputation and if there's going to be a special master, he seems to be well qualified," Vance said...
    A veteran New York judge from Long Island will be tasked with reviewing documents that were seized by the FBI from former President Donald Trump’s Mar-a-Lago estate in Florida. Raymond Dearie, age 79, a senior federal judge in the Eastern District of New York, was named by a federal judge in Florida as a so-called special master Thursday evening, Sept. 15. Dearie was one of two potential candidates put forward by Trump’s legal team and was also endorsed by the Department of Justice. In his role as special master, he will be responsible for reviewing documents and separating out those that could be covered under claims of executive privilege. He will also evaluate any claims regarding the return of property, US District Judge Aileen Cannon said. Cannon gave Dearie until Wednesday, Nov. 30 to wrap up his review. Federal investigators said they recovered more than 11,000 documents from Trump’s home during their search on Monday, Aug. 8. Over 100 documents were marked as classified, the DOJ said. As part of her ruling Thursday, Cannon also barred the Justice...
    by Ben Whedon   U.S. District Judge Aileen Cannon on Thursday appointed New York Judge Raymond Dearie as special master to independently review documents the FBI took from former President Donald Trump’s Florida home in early August. Cannon’s appointment of Dearie came alongside a separate ruling that denied the Department of Justice’s request to continue its own review of the documents. “The Court does not find it appropriate to accept the Government’s conclusions on these important and disputed issues without further review by a neutral third party in an expedited and orderly fashion,” Cannon wrote in her ruling denying the DOJ further review of the seized documents. The DOJ has already appealed that matter to the 11th Circuit. Trump had named Dearie as a potential candidate to serve as special master, a choice to which the DOJ did not object. The agency had nominated two of its own potential reviewers. President Ronald Reagan appointed Dearie to the bench in the 1980s. He served as a New York judge until his retirement in 2011. “Each have substantial judicial experience, during which they have presided over federal...
    By ERIC TUCKER WASHINGTON (AP) — A federal judge on Thursday appointed a veteran New York jurist to serve as an independent arbiter and review records seized during an FBI search of former President Donald Trump’s Florida home last month. In her order, U.S. District Judge Aileen Cannon refused a Justice Department request to lift her temporary prohibition on the department’s use of the roughly 100 classified records that were taken during the Aug. 8 search. She also granted the newly named special master, Raymond Dearie, access to the entire tranche of documents seized from the property even though the department had said the arbiter shouldn’t be permitted to inspect the batch of classified records. The Justice Department is expected to contest the judge’s order to a federal appeals court. It had given Cannon until Thursday to put on hold her order barring the continued review of classified records, and said it would ask the Atlanta-based 11th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals to intervene if she did not do so then. A Justice Department spokesman did not immediately return a...
    A federal judge denied the Department of Justice's motion for a partial stay regarding classified documents obtained during an FBI raid on former President Trump's residence at Mar-a-Lago and appointed a special master.
