The special master Trump wanted is now demanding evidence that the FBI planted evidence in Mar-a-Lago.
NBC News reported:
In a filing filed Thursday, senior U.S. District Judge Raymond J. Dearie of New York, the court-appointed special master, ordered the government to hand over copies of all unclassified items seized in the case by Monday. to Trump’s lawyers.
He then ordered Trump’s team to file a “statement or affidavit” on all inventory items removed from Mar-a-Lago that the “plaintiff alleges were not seized from the property”, meaning items were placed there by someone else.
It is becoming increasingly clear that Trump and his lawyers made a big mistake when they asked for the special master and listed Judge Dearie as one of their options.
Dearie doesn’t take any of Trump’s bullshit. He already dismissed the idea that the documents had been magically released by Trump with no paper trail to confirm any declassifications.
Trump has already lost on the 11th Circuit by trying to stop the DOJ from using classified documents in their criminal investigation, so Dearie can only remain negative for the former president’s defense.
Donald Trump thought he was buying time with the special master. Instead, he may be getting closer to the charge.
