Trump Judge In Trouble, To Be Kicked Out

Ty Cobb, a former attorney in the White House, recently shared his insights, suggesting that the 11th Circuit Court might eventually intervene to remove Judge Aileen Cannon from the ongoing case concerning former President Trump’s alleged mishandling of classified documents at his Florida estate.

During a conversation on CNN’s “Erin Burnett OutFront,” Cobb referenced a recent submission by special counsel Jack Smith, indicating that Smith’s team is prepared to escalate the matter to the 11th Circuit should Judge Cannon delay her rulings. “I think that Jack Smith– I think the filing today makes it plain that she has to rule, and if she doesn’t rule under either scenario, they’ll be in a position to take her up to the 11th Circuit. And I think the 11th Circuit will likely take her off the case,” Cobb stated.

Judge Cannon had previously directed both parties in the Trump documents case to draft jury instructions that would reflect Trump’s interpretation of the Presidential Records Act (PRA), a move that came despite her earlier refusal to dismiss the case based on similar arguments.

Smith’s recent filing sharply criticized Cannon for adopting what he termed a “fundamentally flawed legal premise” regarding the ownership of the classified documents found at Trump’s residence, urging her to make a swift decision on the issue.

Cobb pointed out that the 11th Circuit has previously expressed disapproval of Cannon’s management of the case, which has experienced significant delays. “Her delays here are extraordinary,” he remarked, emphasizing the unusual nature of the case’s progress under Cannon’s supervision.

Further, Cobb dismissed the notion that Cannon’s actions could merely be attributed to inexperience or incompetence. He argued that the evidence suggests a clear bias on her part, which, in his view, should be grounds for disqualification. “I think the evidence is just too overwhelming,” he added, highlighting the severity of the situation and the potential for perceived partiality in Cannon’s handling of the case.

Trump faces charges under the Espionage Act for allegedly retaining national defense information unlawfully, alongside accusations of obstruction of justice related to his attempts to hide the documents from authorities.
