Who is Raymond Dearie, the special master examining Trump documents?

Judge Aileen Cannon appointed Raymond J. Dearie, former chief federal judge in New York, to sort through more than 11,000 documents — including classified documents — that FBI agents seized from the residence of former President Donald Trump in Florida last month.

It was a blow to the Justice Department, which argued that a special master is legally unnecessary and – even if appointed – should not be tasked with reviewing any of the approximately 100 seized documents marked as classified. Appointing a special master to review these documents, prosecutors have argued in numerous court filings, would slow a criminal investigation into the potential mishandling of classified information and could pose a national security risk.
