Supreme Court Rejects Trump in Classified Record Fight
Updated on

The US Supreme Court handed former President Donald Trump a loss in his fight over records the FBI seized from his Mar-a-Lago estate, refusing to intervene and reinstate a special master’s authority to review a set of key documents with classified markings.

The order is a win for the Justice Department, which argued that Trump legally had no interest in what were clearly government records and that there were practical risks in widening the circle of people with access to sensitive information.
