The judge performing the duties of Special Master in the Trump case with the FBI has a very checkered past, why was he ever selected for this role by the Trump team?

The New York Post wrote about Judge Raymond Dearie when he was announced as special master in the case involving the FBI’s unnecessary, unprecedented and unlawful raid on President Trump’s iconic property, Mar-a-Lago:

Hon. Raymond Dearie was announced as special master in the case by US District Judge Aileen Cannon, court documents showed. Dearie was one of two possible third-party legal experts suggested to Cannon by Trump’s team. He was chosen after the Department of Justice agreed he was an acceptable candidate.

Dearie, 78, a Rockville Centre, New York native, had served as the top judge of Brooklyn’s federal court from 1986 to 2011, before taking on a reduced caseload and serving as a Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court judge, according to his official biography.
