Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Washingtontimes.com: “Special master in Trump documents case asks retired judge for help”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

The special master tasked with reviewing documents seized from former President Donald Trump’s Mar-a-Lago estate on Thursday asked a retired judge for assistance.

U.S. District Judge Raymond Dearie, the special master, proposed in a court filing having James Orenstein, a retired New York federal magistrate judge, help him on the case. Judge Dearie did not specify how the ex-judge would provide him with assistance.

Judge Orenstein holds a top-secret clearance and has experience with complex cases, reviewing documents for attorney-client privilege, and served on the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court, according to the court filing.

Judge Orenstein will be paid $500 per hour, the filing said. Mr. Trump is covering all the costs of the special master review, and Judge Dearie gave him and the Justice Department until Saturday to respond to the proposed staffing and compensation.

The filing also mapped out a schedule for Judge Dearie to complete his review of the 11,000 documents FBI agents seized during the Aug. 8 raid of Mar-a-Lago. He is tasked with deciding if any documents are protected by executive or attorney-client privilege. That would render them off limits to the Justice Department as it weighs possible criminal charges against Mr. Trump.
