The special master overseeing the FBI’s seizure of documents from Mar-a-Lago questioned former President Trump’s claims that the documents were declassified. Judge Raymond Dearie told Trump’s lawyers that if they don’t make a case that the evidence was declassified, he would determine they’re classified. CNN National Security and Legal Analyst Carrie Cordero tells Anderson Cooper what she makes of the Trump team’s refusal to go on the record in front of the special master with its claims about the classification status of those documents.
