The government of USA accepted this Monday one of the two experts proposed by the former president donald trump (2017-2021) to oversee the documents seized by FBI agents during the house search in Florida of the former president.
In a text delivered to federal judge Aileen Cannon who is handling the case, the Justice Department stated that the magistrate Raymond Dearie -nominated by Trump- has the necessary qualifications to hold office, as do the two candidates presented by the Government itself.
Last Friday, both parties presented their candidates before the judge, with Trump proposing attorney Paul Huck Jr. and Dearie, and the government nominating judges Thomas Griffith and Barbara Jones, both retired.
The government he leads Joe Biden He had appealed on Thursday Cannon’s decision in favor of the appointment of the independent expert to supervise the documents seized during the search of Trump’s home in Sea-to-Lake (Florida) on August 8.
Judge Cannon, of the Southern District of Florida, ordered that the expert be in charge of reviewing the seized assets, managing the claims of privilege invoked in this regard, making recommendations and evaluating the claims for the return of assets.
The Department of Justice had previously indicated that the appointment of this expert was unnecessary, since a team had selected the documents that could be covered by the attorney-client privilege, and that said figure would delay the criminal investigation carried out by the Government.
In the record made by the FBI in Sea-to-Lake classified and secret documents were found that the former Republican president allegedly took with him when he left the White House in January 2021.
There were also 90 empty folders labeled “classified” and “return to staff secretary/military assistant,” according to the registry’s inventory.
A document describing the military defense of a foreign government, including its nuclear capability, was found by agents of the FBI who raided the residence and private club of the former president donald trump in Sea-to-Lake last month, anonymous sources familiar with the investigation reported, fueling concerns among U.S. intelligence. USA and various government officials about the classified material hidden on the property of Florida.
Some of the seized documents detail top-secret operations of USA, so rigorously guarded that many top national security officials don’t know about them. Only the president or some members of his cabinet could authorize other government officials to know the details of these special access programs.
