Judge Aileen Cannon, overseeing President Trump’s Mar-a-Lago classified document case, has written a scathing message reprimanding the prosecution.
Jack Smith and the prosecution have sent another request to forbid President Trump’s team from seeing evidence used against him.
Claiming that the evidence is classified information; therefore, he should not be allowed to view the report.
The New York Post shares more on the situation:
Meanwhile, in south Florida, US District Judge Aileen Cannon, declined to opt for a more blanket restriction on access Trump’s co-defendants’ legal counsel have to some of the classified information in question for the Mar-a-Lago documents case.
“So again, we are left with the [the special council’s] broad and unconvincing theory, which is that the Court must change the meaning of the word ‘defendant’ to mean, essentially, ‘defense attorney to the exclusion of defendant.’ The court refuses to do so,” Cannon wrote in a 15-page order.
Cannon’s order was specific to Trump’s valet Walt Nauta and Mar-a-Lago maintenance chief Carlos De Oliveira, who have also been indicted in the classified documents case.
Cannon further directed Special Counsel Jack Smith’s team to make requests for deleting portions of files from classified discovery “from any defendant” during a pre-trial motion.
“This order does not authorize the disclosure of any classified information to any defendant beyond the terms of the existing protective orders,” she stressed.
Smith’s office is spearheading both the Jan. 6 and Mar-a-Lago documents cases.
During a hearing on the timeline for that case Wednesday, Cannon also signaled that she was sympathetic to Trump’s push to delay the trial, which is slated for May 2024.
That wasn’t all.
Judge Cannon went on to say their argument, was an “atextual” and “almost blithe” interpretation of the CIPA law.
In other words, the Government once again is acting arbitrarily and capriciously and failing any faithful allegiance to the law (Hi Gary):
Another day and another Court finds that the SEC again acted arbitrarily and capriciously. Is anyone else concerned about this very troubling pattern of the SEC flouting any faithful allegiance to law under Mr. Gensler? https://t.co/5bUgSBUOI8

It’s ridiculous that Jack Smith is trying to withhold evidence from the defense, classified or not.
If the evidence will be used against him, he has every right to know beforehand.
Biden’s DOJ has been hell-bent on prosecuting President Trump, only in the hopes it will prevent him from destroying him in the 2024 elections.
Now that Judge Cannon is standing up for President Trump’s rights, people are screaming ‘bias,’ unlike Judge Chutkan and Judge Engoron, who have actively sought to undermine the trial and had predetermined a guilty verdict.

The fact that Donald Trump appointed Judge Cannon to the bench…should be enough to disqualify her from any case involving Donald Trump. pic.twitter.com/dDlwG6Vo3g

How about the fact that Obama-appointed Judge Chutkan should disqualify her from prosecuting President Trump?
Why don’t people say what’s on their minds?
They don’t care about the rule of law, and they want President Trump disqualified from running.
Luckily, Judge Cannon is looking to delay the trial to give the defense more time to review the evidence against them.
