  Appeals court overturns special master review of records found at Trump's Mar-a-Lago A panel of the 11th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals overturned the order creating a special master to review 11,000 documents seized at Mar-a-Lago."The law is clear," the three-judge panel of the 11th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals ruled. "We cannot write a rule that allows any subject of a search warrant to block government investigations after the execution of the warrant. Nor can we write a rule that allows only former presidents to do so.

Donald Trump, once the former president of the United States, recently announced that he was making another bid for the White House in the upcoming 2024 election. He shared his intentions with a crowd at his Mar-a-Lago resort (via CNN). "In order to make America great and glorious again, I am tonight announcing my candidacy for president of the United States," Trump stated. "This will not be my campaign, this will be our campaign all together."

Since his campaign was announced, the 45th president who only served one term in office has faced backlash. Critics of Trump have taken issue with many aspects of his upcoming run, but he found himself facing many complaints following a shocking statement he made about the January 6 insurrection, according to The Washington Post.

  The deranged Supreme Court case that threatens US democracy, explained Moore v. Harper is a test of whether this Supreme Court can ever be trusted with power.Moore is also potentially the biggest threat to free and fair elections in the United States to reach the Supreme Court in my lifetime — and I was alive for Bush v. Gore. Four justices have endorsed the utterly nonsensical legal theory underlying Moore, which means that, unless one of those four has second thoughts, the future of US elections will be decided by Trump-appointed Justice Amy Coney Barrett.

Trump claimed that he thought the rioters at the capitol were "treated unconstitutionally." However, this wasn't the last comment he would make about the constitution. Now, the former president is catching heat for making a shocking suggestion about the document.

The United States Constitution is a pivotal document that has set the standard for government and laws since the country was founded (via History). Recently, former President Donald Trump, who is running yet again for office, made a shocking call to terminate the important document.

Trump tore into the constitution via his Truth Social platform, CNN reports. "Do you throw the Presidential Election Results of 2020 OUT and declare the RIGHTFUL WINNER, or do you have a NEW ELECTION? A Massive Fraud of this type and magnitude allows for the termination of all rules, regulations, and articles, even those found in the Constitution," Trump said. "Our great 'Founders' did not want, and would not condone, False & Fraudulent Elections!"

Republican Who Took Oath to Defend Constitution Totally OK With Trump Saying He’d Terminate It

  Republican Who Took Oath to Defend Constitution Totally OK With Trump Saying He’d Terminate It “You know, he says a lot of things, you have to take him in context," Rep. Dave Joyce said of the former president When host This Week George Stephanopoulos asked Joyce for his reaction to Trump’s statement, the congressman first tried to evade the question, saying Republicans are “not interested in going backwards.” He then went on a tangent about inflation and household budgets in an attempt to change the subject, but Stephanopoulos kept pressing.

It's no surprise that members of the U.S. government took issue with his statement. His former National Security Affairs assistant, John Bolton, took to Twitter to comment on the post.

"No American conservative can agree with Donald Trump's call to suspend the Constitution because of the results of the 2020 election," Bolton wrote. "And all real conservatives must oppose his 2024 campaign for president."

Liz Chaney used Twitter to give her opinion, too. "Donald Trump believes we should terminate 'all rules, regulations and articles, even those found in the Constitution' to overturn the 2020 election. That was his view on 1/6 and remains his view today. No honest person can now deny that Trump is an enemy of the Constitution."
