What Admin Role Allows Releasing Quarantined Emails?

I am looking to add permissions to an admin account that allows this admin to release quarantined emails. I do not want to give them global admin, but I have not found a admin role that allows someone to release these emails. As a global reader this user can see the quarantined emails, and although Exchange Administrator is assigned, the user still cannot release emails.

Does anyone know one built in role that would allow releasing these quarantined emails without giving them global admin?

Thank you!!
