Supreme Court Rejects Trump’s Plea for Intervention on Special Master

The Supreme Court handed Donald Trump another loss on Thursday, denying intervention in allowing the special master in the Mar-a-Lago case to review the classified documents seized by the FBI.

The court’s move came in a brief unsigned order without explanation. Justice Clarence Thomas, who handles emergency matters arising from Florida, had referred the matter to the full court.

There were no noted dissents — not even from Uncle Clarence — but a vote breakdown was not publicly disclosed, as is typical. 

The request came following a favorable ruling for the DOJ by the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 11th Circuit that exempted roughly 100 classified records, which are federal property.

Team Trump argued that the ruling “impairs substantially the ongoing, time-sensitive work of the Special Master.”
