    President Donald Trump’s Mar-a-Lago estate is seen from the media van in the presidential motorcade in Palm Beach, Fla., in March 2018, en route to Trump International Golf Club in West Palm Beach, Fla. Lawyers for former President Donald Trump asked the U.S. Supreme Court today to step into the legal fight over the classified documents seized during an FBI search of his Florida estate.

WASHINGTON >> Lawyers for former President Donald Trump asked the U.S. Supreme Court today to step into the legal fight over the classified documents seized during an FBI search of his Florida estate.

The Trump team asked the court to overturn a lower court ruling and permit an independent arbiter, or special master, to review the roughly 100 documents with classified markings that were taken in the Aug. 8 search.

A three-judge panel last month limited the special master’s review to the much larger tranche of non-classified documents.
