I’ve heard Satan called many things, but “Special Master” is a new one...
LOL! The fix is in, bet on it!
Who is the slave?
Lol! Surprised she didn’t appoint Chelsea Clinton or Eric Holder as “fair and balanced” as she has been so far...
This is so blatantly a constitutional violation.
They don't even pretend to be about laws anymore.
Eric Holder? Keith Ellison? Or another “impartial, highly respected” figure?

It’s a never ending list of Obama/Clinton Minions

On the recommendation of Senator Daniel Patrick Moynihan, Jones was nominated to the United States District Court for the Southern District of New York by President Bill Clinton on October 18, 1995 to a seat vacated by Kenneth Conboy. She was confirmed by the United States Senate on December 22, 1995, and received commission on December 26, 1995.
Is she related to Hillary ?

Jones took senior status on December 31, 2012, and subsequently retired from the court on January 4, 2013 to go into private practice. She now works on white collar and financial fraud cases as a partner in the New York office of Bracewell LLP.
Is it like ‘double secret probation’?
Is that different than in “I Dream of Jeannie” ??
I think that is what the "Special Master" puts you on when you do a panty raid.
I think they should call the appointee: Masterdon, but they might get him confused with someone else...
