Donald Trump has been exhaustively hunted by the Deep State over the course of the last several years, doing legal and political battle with some of the most powerful societal forces that exist in this great nation of ours, and now his latest conflict is headed to the highest hallowed ground in the land.
With the DOJ seemingly unwilling to entertain Trump’s claim that government documents seized from Mar-a-Lago were already declassified, the former President has had to make some serious legal moves in order to have his case heard fairly. Now, this means that at least certain aspects of the investigatory process will be subject to review by the Supreme Court.
Former President Donald Trump’s legal team has elevated its legal battle to the Supreme Court, requesting that Justice Clarence Thomas, who has jurisdiction over the 11th Circuit, vacate the stay by the court that allowed the Justice Department to continue its review of classified documents seized during the FBI’s unprecedented raid of Mar-a-Lago.
U.S. District Judge Aileen Cannon issued an injunction against the DOJ’s use of the 100 documents purportedly marked as classified to be used for investigative purposes.
The 11th Circuit overturned Cannon’s order and prevented court-appointed Special Master Raymond Dearie from reviewing those materials. The panel had limited Dearie’s review to only the non-classified documents seized from Mar-a-Lago.
Trump’s team scorched the previous malfeasance.
“The unprecedented circumstances presented by this case—an investigation of the Forty-Fifth President of the United States by the administration of his political rival and successor—compelled the District Court to acknowledge the significant need for enhanced vigilance and to order the appointment of a Special Master to ensure fairness, transparency, and maintenance of the public trust,” the filing states.
“That appointment order is simply not appealable on an interlocutory basis and was never before the Eleventh Circuit. Nonetheless, the Eleventh Circuit granted a stay of the Special Master Order, effectively compromising the integrity of the well-established policy against piecemeal appellate review and ignoring the District Court’s broad discretion without justification,” the filing continues.
Trump has repeatedly condemned the DOJ’s investigation as a “witch hunt” that he believes is designed to keep him from running for office again in 2024.
