Why would the court do this?

The Supreme Court, which former President Donald Trump is heavily credited for putting together, just dealt him a massive blow by rejecting a special master to review classified papers which were taken from Mar-a-Lago.

According to NBC, the justices decided to deny Trump’s emergency request and no noted dissents were given.

This decision by the Supreme Court does not interfere with the Justice Department’s access to the same documents.

Trump’s attorney’s said that the decision to block his special master from seeing the documents “impairs substantially the ongoing, time-sensitive work of the special master.”

They added that “any limit on the comprehensive and transparent review of materials seized in the extraordinary raid of a president’s home erodes public confidence in our system of justice.”

Trump wanted to appoint federal Judge Raymond Dearie as his special master and have him determine the status of arounf 100 documents which were marked classified.

The Supreme Court just dealt a very big blow to Donald Trump, we will update you as more information comes out.
