New York/Washington, September 20 (EFE). — On Tuesday, Judge Raymond Dary asked lawyers for former President Donald Trump whether documents seized in August by the FBI at the politician’s mansion were declassified during the first hearing in New York. court.
Daery, appointed as an independent examiner to review more than 11,000 documents the FBI obtained from the former president’s Florida residence, has been arguing in court with the president’s legal team, which is refusing to provide evidence that Trump declassified the documents. national media.
The former president claimed that he himself declassified the documents he brought to Mar-A-Lago and suggested that there were no grounds to prosecute him for harboring confidential government materials at his residence. However, neither he nor his lawyers supported this idea in court.
One of Trump’s lawyers, James Trusty, said in court that Darey’s request for evidence to support Trump’s declassification claim was not within his purview.
“I’m doing what I was asked to do,” said the judge, who will decide which of these documents will not be submitted to the Justice Department, which is investigating the case of the former president.
The expert added that without evidence to support this claim, the only way to judge the level of secrecy of the documents is the fact that they were all marked as highly important national security secrets.
Dear, assigned to review the materials seized at the Trump residence in Mar-a-Lago, must propose an “action plan” agreed with both parties on his task within no more than 10 days, which should end on November 30 next year.
Dirie is to present the plan to federal judge Eileen Cannon in Florida, who is considering a lawsuit filed by Trump (2017-2021) against the US government as a result of the FBI’s Aug. 8 search of his mansion.
Cannon appointed Deary on Thursday as an independent examiner to review the seizures and also denied a Justice Department request to allow him to examine the seized documents, which were marked as classified.
This fact is being questioned by lawyers, who believe it will temporarily delay the government’s criminal investigation.
The Justice Department demanded that it be allowed to view only documents marked as classified and that Deary’s review exclude them.
The idea of appointing an independent expert, to which Cannon agreed, came from Trump’s lawyers with the stated goal of giving “credibility” to the investigation into the transfer of official documents in Mar-a-Lago, one hundred of which are “classified” in nature, according to the Attorney General’s office.
Lawyers from the US Attorney’s Office opposed the appointment of this figure and, in fact, after the decision of the judge, filed an appeal to the Eleventh Appeal District in Atlanta, Georgia.
In addition to this paperwork process at his Florida residence, Trump faces several legal investigations related to his business and his political activities, especially in the 2021 presidential election.
In New York, a Republican politician faces two investigations related to his family business, where he is accused of allegedly inflating the value of his business to deceive the tax authorities. As part of that investigation, the Attorney General of Manhattan obtained his 2021 tax returns.
