Trump-appointed judge who granted his special master request 'abused' her 'discretion'

U.S. District Judge Aileen M. Cannon, a Donald Trump appointee, has drawn a great deal of criticism from Trumpís detractors for granting his request for a special master in the federal case involving government documents he was storing at his Mar-a-Lago resort/home in Palm Beach, Florida. And on Wednesday night, September 21, some of the criticism of Cannonís decision came from a three-judge panel that included two other Trump appointees.

According to the Washington Postís Aaron Blake, ďA three-judge panel of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 11th Circuit was rather unsparing in unanimously granting the Justice Department a reprieve from Cannonís order barring them from reviewing documents with classified markings seized from Mar-a-Lago. The stay is temporary, but the reasoning is firm. They repeatedly rejected not just the Trump legal teamís lack of arguments, but also, Cannonís acceptance of them. Indeed, they suggested it was inexplicable that Cannon ruled for Trump even by her own logic.Ē

When FBI agents executed a search warrant at Mar-a-Lago on Monday, August 8, the items that they were looking for, according to the Washington Post, included classified documents that never should have left Washington, D.C. ó among them, classified documents pertaining to nuclear weapons. Hillary Clinton, in response to the case, has noted that when she was secretary of state, such documents were so closely guarded that she was allowed to look at them in the presence of a military officer but not keep them or copy them. Moving classified government documents to private property like Mar-a-Lago, Clinton has emphasized, is a serious violation of security protocols.

The three-judge panel, according to Blake, accused Cannon of abusing her ďdiscretion.Ē

5. Reading their pedigree, it sounds like the template for a John Grisham thriller

Gibson Dunn staff includes Preet Bharara and Tom Cotton.

9. She's certainly earned it.

I STILL think milady felt favorably predisposed to cut the donald ANY slack she could possibly find, for favorable rulings that would be her thank-you notes to him for that neat job.

11. Not going to happen.

Judges get reversed all the time, including for "abuse of discretion." They never get charged with obstruction of justice and it isn't going to happen in this case

13. I predict she will be "educated" by many appeals until she commits something impeachable.

14. Someone needs to tell her to resign her bench right now, while she's still got a law license.

This won't be the last time she's overturned for incompetence.
