Two judges appointed by former President Donald Trump have agreed to overturn a decision barring the Department of Justice (DOJ) from using documents seized during the Mar-a-Lago raid for criminal investigations.

US District Court Judge Aileen Cannon, also a Trump appointee, earlier issued a decision appointing a special supervisor to review documents taken during the raid and temporarily prevent documents marked as “classified” from being found in of the Justice Department investigation.

On Wednesday, a three-judge Court of Appeals unanimously ruled to overturn elements of Cannon’s decision to remove the classified documents from the special master’s purview and allow the DOJ to reuse the documents.

The US Circuit Court of Appeals’ decision for the 11th Circuit was made by District Judges Andrew Brasher and Britt Grant, both appointed by Trump. The panel’s third judge, Circuit Judge Robin Rosenbaum, was appointed by former President Barack Obama.

In the ruling, the judges agreed that it was “understood” that “the public has a strong interest” in allowing authorities to determine whether Trump may have compromised national security by possibly storing the documents illegally .

Trump has claimed he released all documents before returning them to his South Florida home after leaving office in January 2021, although no credible evidence was presented to support the claim.

The judges found the former president’s allegation unconvincing in their ruling on Wednesday, but also described the question as to whether the documents had been released as a “diversionary tactic”.

“The record contains no evidence that any of these records were released,” the judges wrote. “In any case, the declassification argument is a red herring, at least for these purposes, since declassifying an official document would neither change its content nor make it personal.”

“Well, even if we had assumed so [Trump] declassified some or all of the documents, that would not explain why he has a personal interest in them,” they continued.

The ruling came the same day that New York Attorney General Letitia James filed a $250 million civil lawsuit against Trump, three of his children and two former Trump Organization executives. The DOJ investigation is unrelated.

While the Special Master in charge of reviewing the documents, Judge Raymond Dearie, will no longer be responsible for the documents marked as classified, he will continue to review approximately 11,000 additional documents.

Trump’s legal team sought Dearie’s appointment as a special master, a move that several legal experts have since suggested backfired on the former president.

Dearie slammed Trump’s legal team during a court hearing on Tuesday, telling them they can’t “have your cake and eat it too” while defying his demands to back the former president’s declassification lawsuit.
