WHAT THE F**K?
Just a minute ago I heard reporting that literally caused me to spit out a mouthful of water cussing. MSNBC’s Ken Dilanian reported that Judge Cannon, a once unknown Federalist Society hack Trump appointed to the federal bench, who was so worthless she was consigned to an obscure, all by her lonesome post down there in the southern District of FL will be hearing the National Security case Trump is indicted for.
Please, PLEASE let this be wrong. Bad info. Someone “playing” journalists in a “own the libs by making them go crazy and wind up with egg on their faces” type thing.
No one had heard of her until during the fight over returning documents Trump STOLE including highly classified ones his legal team managed to “judge shop” and ger her assigned to hear a motion to suppress. She bent over backwards to help Trump, going so far as to from the bench tell Trump’s lawyers how to get favorable rulings from her! Her conducts and rulings were SO outrageous that the notoriously conservative appellate court that heard the govt.’s appeals slapped her down, HARD in what for the federal process was lighting speed.
Sadly, she has a lifetime appointment and removing her would require impeachment and we all know how that would turn out. Still, after she gained such infamy and ridicule, even by some in the conservative legal community she faded back into obscurity.
But… She’s BAAAACK!
Supposedly it was a “random” assignment. Sure. I’ll believe that one when the GOP unanimously repudiates Trump, every MAGA goober owns up to being suckered by him and apologizes for having been so gullible, Trump pleads guilty and accepts at least ten years in prison AND he dissolves the Trump Org. and uses every penny to reimburse the countless people he’s screwed over in his too long, hateful despicable life.
Here’s the worst part. The chances Judge Cannon will pass, recuse herself aren’t “slim and none.” Not only no but HELL NO! She will be Trump’s bestest defense lawyer! I wonder how many of the hard-core conservative appellate judges who had to slap her down hard already are headed to the ER with heart attack symptoms? And Chief Justice Roberts is having a cow over this too. I wonder if he was mean to Alito and Thomas at SCOTUS’ daily conference this morning if they’d gotten the news and were high-fiving and mocking the entire judicial system?
Why I say this is the worst part is because just as we knew would happen Trump and the GOP mediaverse rose up in “Witch Hunt”, “Weaponization of the govt./DOJ” fury if as they should prosecutors file a motion for Cannon to recuse herself it will be worse than tossing a can of gasoline on the bonfire. It will be closer to popping a nuke. The claims of persecution will get hotter than the sun!
Stay tuned. If this “random assignment” of the case is true (and I find it hard to believe such a credible legal reporter is wrong) we are staring into the abyss.
Again, please PLEASE let this story turn out to be untrue!
