DOJ Asks Appeals Court to Remove Special Master From Mar-a-Lago Case

The Department of Justice on Friday formally asked an appeals court to overrule the appointment of an independent special master reviewing the materials the FBI seized from former President Donald Trump’s estate in early August.

In a brief to the 11th Circuit Court of Appeals, the DOJ excoriated U.S. District Judge Aileen Cannon’s decision to appoint a special master, asserting that a court of her level lacked the authority to interfere in the investigation.

“District courts have no general equitable authority to superintend federal criminal investigations,” the brief said, per CNN. “[I]nstead, challenges to the government’s use of the evidence recovered in a search are resolved through ordinary criminal motions practice if and when charges are filed. Here, however, the district court granted the extraordinary relief Plaintiff sought…”

The judge has agreed to expedite the appeal, but Trump’s legal team has until Nov. 10 to file a response, meaning even a favorable ruling for the DOJ will not come for several weeks.

In her ruling, Cannon granted Trump’s request both to appoint a special master and to halt the DOJ’s own review of the seized documents. The 11th Circuit, in late September, permitted the DOJ to resume its investigation.

The special master has already begun his own review of the documents. Raymond Dearie, whom the court appointed to fill the role, was a candidate Trump proposed and to whom the DOJ did not object. Dearie has, however, proven somewhat skeptical of Trump’s claims to have previously declassified the disputed documents or his public suggestions that the bureau planted evidence during the raid.

Trump further sought the Supreme Court’s intervention in the case, requesting that it grant Dearie the authority to review a host of documents, though the high court declined to do so.

    We 100 million armed Americans with the law on our side under the constitution to deal with the tyranny and seizing of our country legally by what ever means necessary including armed conflict invoking the exact reason for the 2nd amendment.

    verses about 4 million total local and federal assets listed below to try to prevent us from following the exact Law of the land

    if 10 % of us stepped up to handle this it would still be 10 million armed citizens.
    verses I would bet maybe 10% OF THE NUMBERS BELOW WILLING TO TRY TO GO TO THE AID OF THESE TYRANTS AND BETRAY THE CONSTITUTION OATH THEY TOOK AND TURN ON THEIR OWN FAMILY AND FRIENDS>ANYMORE THAN THAT I WOULD BE SURPRISED.

    so 10 million verses 400,000 tops or even all of them still 2 1/2 times the manpower.

    443,543 National Guard
    1,390,000 active military
    1.100,000 reservist
    100,000 federal FBI- MARSHAL’S- CIA- SECRET SERVICE ETC.
    696,644 nationwide current police, sheriff’s ETC in the USA.
    800,000 retired possible?

    The horrible VIOLATIONS inflicted last 2 years. lockdowns,
    shortages, illegal mandates , vaccines, election fraud and now raids on our homes VIOLATE the
    1st,2nd,4th,5th,6th,9th,10th,11th,14th amendments to weaken us emotionally,
    physically so we will give up our freedoms voluntarily. NOT HAPPENING!
    TIME FOR AN END TO OUR TOLERANCE THAT HA BEEN MISTAKEN FOR WEAKNESS,

    IF THIS ELECTION FAILS US AGAIN BY BEING STOLEN OR WORSE WE CAN NO LONGER AFFORD TO REMAIN TOLERANT.

      Marty you are 100% correct. But there is NOT enough of us to stand up to them. I know alot of my Friends will, but half are just talk & back down to the Rat cowards. If this Election goes bad then WE MUST ALL RISE UP & DEMAND our Country BACK. America will no longer be America & WE the PEOPLE will be NOTHING BUT PUPPETS.

        5 or 10 % of our 100 mil will do nicely and most likely cause an immediate surrender by maybe 400 thousand of their 4 million total assets and the rest of them will likely assist us and put an end to this tyranny.

        I always say. If Jan 6th was a real insurrection when we had about 1 million only in town that day. NOT ONE OF THE ENTIRE CONGRESS MEMBERS OR CAPITAL POLICE OR ANY OF THEM WOULD BE ALIVE TODAY TO MAKE THIS SHIT UP.

        Thats how you know it was just a message that hey we are hear. BUT NO THEY KEEP DOUBLING DOWN. STUPID PEOPLE!

        if that scenario happens again I fear the worst for all of them because there mostly good reps that are cowards or blackmail over some stupid shit that most of us could give a fat rats ass about if they were exposed.
