Problem

In the figure, $\angle A$, $\angle B$, and $\angle C$ are right angles. If $\angle AEB = 40^\circ$ and $\angle BED = \angle BDE$, then $\angle CDE =$

[asy] dot((0,0)); label("$E$",(0,0),SW); dot(dir(85)); label("$A$",dir(85),NW); dot((4,0)); label("$D$",(4,0),SE); dot((4.05677,0.648898)); label("$C$",(4.05677,0.648898),NE); draw((0,0)--dir(85)--(4.05677,0.648898)--(4,0)--cycle);  dot((2,2)); label("$B$",(2,2),N); draw((0,0)--(2,2)--(4,0)); pair [] x = intersectionpoints((0,0)--(2,2)--(4,0),dir(85)--(4.05677,0.648898)); dot(x[0]); dot(x[1]); label("$F$",x[0],SE); label("$G$",x[1],SW); [/asy]

$\text{(A)}\ 75^\circ \qquad \text{(B)}\ 80^\circ \qquad \text{(C)}\ 85^\circ \qquad \text{(D)}\ 90^\circ \qquad \text{(E)}\ 95^\circ$
