Attorneys for former President Trump and the Justice Department are scheduled to meet Tuesday in New York with the court-appointed special master who is reviewing the documents seized by the FBI during the bureau’s raid of Mar-a-Lago last month.
U.S. District Judge Aileen Cannon appointed retired New York Judge Raymond Dearie, a Reagan appointee, on Thursday to serve as special master in the high-profile case.
The following day, Dearie scheduled a meeting with Trump and Justice Department attorneys for Tuesday and encouraged the two parties to suggest items to discuss, according to a court filing reviewed by The Hill.
Dearie, who has a document review deadline of Nov. 30, was the only special master candidate upon which the Justice Department and Trump’s legal team agreed.
Meanwhile, the Justice Department is still battling to access the allegedly classified documents agents seized from the former president’s Florida home.
