    The Justice Department on Tuesday asked that the United States Supreme
    Court deny former President Donald Trump’s request to block the DOJ
    from continuing its review of classified documents seized during the
    FBI’s unprecedented raid of Trump's Mar-a-Lago estate in Florida.

    Trump's attorneys last week elevated the former president's legal
    battle to the Supreme Court, requesting that Justice Clarence Thomas,
    who has jurisdiction over the 11th Circuit Court of Appeals, vacate the
    stay by a lower court that allowed the DOJ to review classified records
    taken in August from Mar-a-Lago instead of court-appointed Special
    Master Raymond Dearie.

    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 Dearie from
    reviewing those materials. The panel had limited Dearie's review to
    only the non-classified documents seized from Mar-a-Lago.


    A special master that can review only certain documents?
