Judge appoints Trump candidate as special master to oversee classified files


A Florida judge has appointed Donald Trump’s nominee as special master of the FBI’s investigation into top-secret papers seized by agents from his Mar-a-Lago estate.

Judge Raymond Dearie will now review materials seized during the August raid on the former president’s estate after Mr. Trump successfully demanded that one be appointed.

The request was approved by U.S. District Judge Aileen Cannon, who had been appointed by Mr. Trump, and Judge Dearie was a candidate the Justice Department said earlier this week could also accept.
