Trump asks SCOTUS to intervene in seized docs case

Former United States President Donald Trump has asked the Supreme Court (SCOTUS) to intervene in the case regarding the examinations of the documents the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) seized from his residence in Mar-a-Lago, Florida, the filing submitted to the institution and published on Tuesday showed.

In the filing, Trump asked Justice Clarence Thomas to overrule a previous decision made by the 11th Circuit Court of Appeals, which allowed the Department of Justice (DoJ) to inspect a number of documents taken from the former president's home that could have been the subject of the attorney-client privilege. Previously, Trump was granted a special master, who should have conducted an independent review of the documents and determined their status, a call the DoJ later appealed.

"The 11th Circuit lacked jurisdiction to review the special master order, which authorized the review of all materials seized from President Trump's residence, including documents bearing classification markings," the filing read.
