Original article. I assume this judge is applying that statement to himself. He accepted the job and now he wants to change the rules? I think he just disqualified himself. Time to move on to someone willing to do the job of Special Master. See the related article at the end of this one.

Judge Raymond Dearie, the “special master” appointed to review the ‘classified’ documents seized from Mar-a-Lago blasted Trump’s lawyers at Tuesday’s preliminary conference.
Judge Dearie was one of the FISA judges who signed the warrant to spy on Carter Page without cause.
Raymond Dearie was one of two FISA Court judges who rubber-stamped the warrants to spy on Carter Page.
On Tuesday Judge Dearie repeatedly asked Trump’s lawyers to prove the former president declassified the documents stored at Mar-a-Lago, “You can’t have your cake and eat it,” the judge said according to Politico.
In a new filing Trump’s lawyers argued that the DOJ has never actually proven the documents it claims are classified are actually classified.
“The District Court denied the Government’s stay request, noting it was not inclined to hastily adopt the Government’s contention that the approximately 100 purportedly “classified” documents were, in fact, classified, and that President Trump could not possibly have a possessory interest in any of them.” Trump’s lawyers wrote in the 40-page filing.
The senior federal judge tasked with reviewing the materials seized by the FBI from Donald Trump’s Mar-a-Lago estate sharply questioned the former president’s attorneys Tuesday during their first hearing before his courtroom.
Judge Raymond Dearie pushed Trump’s lawyers repeatedly for refusing to back up the former president’s claim that he declassified the highly sensitive national security-related records discovered in his residence.
“You can’t have your cake and eat it,” said Dearie, the “special master” picked by U.S. District Court Judge Aileen Cannon to vet Trump’s effort to reclaim the materials taken by federal investigators.
Trump has argued that the 11,000 documents taken from Mar-a-Lago were rightfully in his possession, including about 100 bearing classification markings that suggest they contain some of the nation’s most closely guarded intelligence.
But Dearie bristled at the effort by Trump’s lawyers to resist his request for proof that Trump actually attempted to declassify any of the 100 documents that the Justice Department recovered from his estate. Without evidence from Trump, Dearie said his only basis to judge the classification level of the records was the fact that they all bear markings designating them as highly sensitive national security secrets — including some that indicate they contain intelligence derived from human sources and foreign intercepts.
President Trump last month described the declassification process in a statement to John Solomon of Just The News.
“He had a standing order that documents removed from the Oval Office and taken into the residence were deemed to be declassified,” Trump’s office said in a statement to Just The News. “The power to classify and declassify documents rests solely with the President of the United States. The idea that some paper-pushing bureaucrat, with classification authority delegated BY THE PRESIDENT, needs to approve of declassification is absurd.”

“He Takes the Bait Because He’s Drinking and Tweeting Every Night” – Attorney Mike Davis on Andrew Weissmann’s Crazy Tweets About Unlawful Mar-a-Lago Raid
Attorney Mike Davis trolled Andrew Weissmann and the corrupt actors in the Deep State while describing the corrupt DOJ’s unwinnable position in its Mar-a-Lago raid. Weissmann is the corrupt former DOJ employee behind the Russia collusion lie used as an attempt to remove President Trump from office,
The Biden DOJ way overstepped the law when it performed the unnecessary (Trump was complying with the FBI’s requests for information on the documents he maintained in Mar-a-Lago), unprecedented (never before has the former President and the future President had his home raided by the FBI), and illegal raid on Mar-a-Lago (Biden’s DOJ and FBI had no legal basis to steal documents from President Trump).
Attorney Davis outlined the current status of the case where a special master judge is looking into the raid on Mar-a-Lago.
It’s becoming clear that the corrupt DOJ stole the documents from President Trump’s home to keep them hidden because they showed the Deep State’s crimes in their attempted coup of the Trump Presidency, a very serious crime indeed.
Davis shared that President Trump had every right to declassify any documents he wanted to, and he had every right to take whatever documents he wanted to with him when he left the White House.
The documents that the President took are also not the original documents that are still in the possession of the Deep State DOJ. There was no need to steal President Trump’s records and certainly no legal basis to do so.
The Gateway Pundit has pointed out Davis’s arguments for weeks now. We also pointed out this weekend how it looked like the crooked former DOJ employee Andrew Weissman is somehow related to this Mar-a-Lago crime.
Steve Bannon pointed out to Davis this morning that Deep State actors like Weissmann were freaking out over the Mar-a-Lago raid and rightly so based on the law. Bannon shared at the 8:00 mark below:
You’re coming in hot non-stop and you’re trolling some of the worst creatures on earth like Andrew Weissmann and his crowd who are, who take the bait often…
To this Attorney Davis replied:
He takes the bait because he’s drinking and tweeting every night apparently.
Bannon then shared:
Hold it, I want to say before I bring Kash in about Weissmann and guys like Marc Elias (Hillary’s former attorney). They’re brilliant. They’re twisted. And Weissmann’s the most twisted that Trump has somehow deep in his psychy twisted this guy. But you’re right. The tell was when he said the other night that there wasn’t enought liquor in his cabinet to be able to work through the second term of Trump. I mean, he said the quiet part out loud. He knows it’s coming. That’s why he’s freaked out.
Yes he puts out late night tweets that Mike Davis crushes.
