Trump’s legal team has officially responded in court to the DOJ argument that no “special master” is needed.

And they weren’t happy about the DOJ’s argument, ripping them for suggesting that they should be the sole arbiter for these documents.

Former President Donald Trump’s lawyers Wednesday pushed back against Justice Department arguments that he’s not entitled to have a “special master” to review documents taken by the FBI during a raid of his Mar-a-Lago estate.

Trump’s attorneys made their argument in a brief filed to Florida federal district court Judge Aileen M. Cannon. They said she should appoint a special master to conduct independent review the classified documents seized by the FBI, and slammed a Tuesday Justice Department filing.

“The United States Attorney’s Office, has filed an extraordinary document with this Court, suggesting that the DOJ, and the DOJ alone, should be entrusted with the responsibility of evaluating its unjustified pursuit of criminalizing a former President’s possession of personal and Presidential records in a secure setting,” Trump’s lawyers wrote.

“[T]he Government twists the framework of responding to a motion for a Special Master into an all-encompassing challenge to any judicial consideration, presently or in the future, of any aspect of its unprecedented behavior in this investigation,” Trump’s lawyers also said.

Trump is especially unhappy with this photo, claiming they put them on the floor for dramatic effect:
