Trump tells court that classified material should have been expected in presidential records found at Mar-a-Lago

A judge is set to hear arguments this afternoon related to the search of Former President Donald Trump's home. Attorneys for Trump and the Justice Department are due in court today.

Trump wants a special master to review documents the F.B.I. seized from his home.

Trump's filing doesn't address obstruction allegations made by the D.O.J. but it lays out his case for a special master appointment. In it, Trump seems to acknowledge the F.B.I. seized documents marked classified, but he has asserted that should've been expected with presidential records.

Trump’s lawyers argue that under the Presidential Records Act, the Archives should have followed up with a good faith effort to secure recovery of presidential records, rather than referring a criminal probe to the Justice Department.

The judge had indicated she was inclined to appoint a special master. He points out the F.B.I. search of a Former President's home is unprecedented.

The hearing is scheduled for Today at 11 a.m. local time
