Raymond Dearie is a US federal judge, and he has been chosen to review the files that were seized by the FBI in the search of US President Donald Trump’s Florida house. He is a special legal master at 78, and he will decide whether the documents are off-limits in any legal proceedings. The reason behind this is the team of Donald Trump as they approached them, so the US Department of Justice previously said it did not object.
The US President is being investigated for handling classified materials. The Justice Department’s official statement will say that the documents stored by Mr. Donald at his home will be concealed as a part of an effort to obstruct an FBI investigation. The authorities also said that the documents would be handed over to the National Archives as US presidents are legally obliged to leave these documents in the office only.
Mr. Donald denied that he was not involved in any kind of wrongdoing, and also argued that he classified all the documents as the president. They were also kept securely at his Mar-a-Lago home.
Mr. Donald’s team has requested a special master and an independent lawyer who will decide whether the records are covered by the attorney-client or executive privilege. Earlier this month, Mr. Trump requested and banned the US government from using the seized material for the investigation until the special legal officer independently reviewed all documents.
Mr. Donald appointed a special legal officer named Mr. Dearie, US federal Judge Aileen Cannon. He is also ruling against the Department of Justice, which was not allowed to resume the review of the file.
