Trump asks Supreme Court to weigh in on Mar-a-Lago classified docs probe

Why it matters: Tuesday's emergency request by Trump's legal team marks an escalation in the Mar-a-Lago classified documents probe.

The latest: Justice Clarence Thomas, who is assigned to oversee emergency requ

in the 11th Circuit, requested the DOJ respond to Trump's petition by 5 p.m. ET on Oct. 11.

Driving the news: Trump's legal team in the filing asks that the special

master be allowed to review the roughly 100 documents marked as classified that were found at Mar-a-Lago during the August search.

The former president's legal team argues that the 11th Circuit lacked the judicial authority to

stay the special master order "authorizing the review of seized documents bearing classification markings."
