Introduced the “Special Master” who inspects documents seized in Mar-a-Lago Donald TrumpLawyer eight days to support his allegations that FBI The agents planted a substance while they searched his baton.
Judge Raymond Deere included the order in a new ‘case management plan’ to process through about 11,000 documents — and has repeatedly followed Trump in making the prosecution public without providing evidence of FBI misconduct.
The judge wrote: “Not later than September 30, 2022, the plaintiff must provide a declaration or affidavit that includes each of the following matters of fact,” including “a list of any specific items provided in the detailed property inventory that the plaintiff asserts were not It was seized from the building on August 8, 2022. “
The inventory lists items that FBI agents cataloged after searching the August 8 private Trump Club in West Palm Beach, Florida. The Ministry of Justice says that this included more than 100 documents marked “secret,” some of which were marked top secret.
Trump, in an interview with Fox News host Sean Hannity, claimed to have “declassified everything”, apparently contradicting his claim that the substance was planted. Derry, a senior federal judge in New York, also pushed Trump’s team to provide evidence that he did.
Raymond Deere, a veteran New York judge serving as “Special Master,” gave Donald Trump’s attorney until Friday to provide a list of “identified items” they assert were “not seized from the building.”
Trump launched his latest allegations of planting evidence, which would be a crime, shortly after telling Hannity that the FBI may have been looking at deleted emails from Hillary Clinton during the search.
“The problem you’re having is that they’re going into the rooms – they won’t let anyone come close – they won’t even let them stay in the same building,” he said of his lawyer.
Did they throw anything on those piles? Or did they do it later? “There is no chain of custody here with them,” Trump said.
“Wouldn’t it be on videotape, possibly?” Hannity asked him. Trump told him that the FBI had asked him to turn off the security cameras during the inspection, but they kept working.
– No, I don’t think so. I mean, they were in a room,” Trump said, shrugging off the idea.
Some of Trump’s lawyers have made similar allegations.

Trump also called it a “setup” and compared it to “Russia, Russia, Russia” and “hoaxes.”
Deere, who was one of two candidates for the position recommended by Trump’s lawyers to the Trump-appointed federal judge, wrote the filing “will be the plaintiff’s last opportunity to raise any factual dispute regarding the completeness and accuracy of the detailed property inventory.” Eileen Cannon.
A three-judge panel by the Eleventh Circuit Court of Appeals overturned Cannon’s ruling that Derry must see classified material so Trump’s attorneys can file the franchise claims. The Justice Department appealed, arguing that Trump had no interest in possessing the materials.
That panel included two judges appointed by Trump and one appointed by Barack Obama.
It ruled that a Department of Justice criminal investigation based on confidential records seized from the club could proceed, and prevented the special lord from sorting through confidential documents to assess franchise claims.
By October 14, the government will have to submit a document listing any factual disputes with items on the list for review.
During September, the two sides will exchange lists of documents that may or may not be privileged, and Judge Derry will influence the disputed documents. This process will continue until October.
