The Supreme Court is now having to consider a request from former President Donald Trump to investigate the FBI raid on his Mar-a-Lago home.
Trump is not backing down on this one.
Trump is asking the U.S. Supreme Court to step in on the legal battle over government documents the FBI seized from his Mar-a-Lago estate.
"Trump’s legal team asked Justice Clarence Thomas to issue an emergency order authorizing the special master’s authority to review over 100 documents seized from Mar-a-Lago with classified markings," reported Breitbart.
Justice Thomas received the request because he oversees the 11th Circuit Court of Appeals.
the 11th Circuit Court of Appeals ruled last month that special master Raymond Dearie cannot review the documents that were marked classified.
"For our part, we cannot discern why Plaintiff would have an individual interest in or need for any of the one-hundred documents with classification markings," the three-judge panel of the 11th Circuit wrote.
"But the record contains no evidence that any of these records were declassified. And before the special master, Plaintiff resisted providing any evidence that he had declassified any of these documents," the 11th Circuit added.
Trump’s legal team urged Justice Thomas to grant their request.
Trump's team noted that the request should be granted in the name of transparency and restoring public confidence in the nation’s justice system.
"Any limit on the comprehensive and transparent review of materials seized in the extraordinary raid of a President’s home erodes public confidence in our system of justice," Trump’s attorneys said in the 37-page filing.
