Trump’s Mar-a-Lago Raid Case Takes Another Turn

Former deputy assistant attorney general, Tom Dupree, has made new statements regarding the case of the Mar-a-Lago documents following the appointment of a special master for their review. The Justice Department has filed a motion asking the 11th Circuit Court of Appeals to “end” Special Master Raymond Dearie’s review of the documents removed from Trump’s home in Florida.

Dearie had originally been appointed by US District Judge Aileen Cannon and was set to review all of the personal documents and documents of varying classification levels found. He would also look through a document that would fall under attorney-client privilege. The documents to be reviewed were recovered after the FBI raided Trump’s Mar-a-Lago home in August.

However, the Justice Department said that they should be allowed to continue with their review of the classified documents that were seized. The 11th Circuit ruled in favor of their request, stating that Dearie’s review should be limited to the non-classified records for attorney-client and executive privilege. The classified records would continue to be reviewed by the DOJ.

Trump maintained that all of the documents found in his Mar-a-Lago home were declassified.

On Friday, The Justice Department questioned why Dearie should be appointed in the case as Trump has not “asserted a claim of personal attorney-client privilege that would justify the district court’s order.” They also added that Trump has not made such claims regarding any of the documents recovered. Thus, they are arguing that a special master is not necessary for this case.

Trump’s legal team will have to submit by Nov. 10 their brief responding to this request.
