Democrats Panic as Judge Cannon Overrules Jack Smith: ‘Basically Inviting Trump to Submit Motion to Dismiss Case’

Judge Aileen Cannon has struck down two of Special Counsel Jack Smith’s sealed filings in her ruling in President Donald Trump’s document case, sending Democrat legal analysts into a panic.

Reporter Kyle Cheney said, “Judge Cannon comes out swinging at special counsel this morning, striking two of prosecutors’ sealed filings and demanding an explanation of ‘the legal propriety of using an out-of-district grand jury proceeding to continue to investigate’ the docs case.”

Reporter Julie Kelly said, “I told you Judge Cannon is legit.

“She is not going to tolerate Jack Smith’s bullsh*t.

“This is gold–she asks defense to raise possible grand jury abuse by DOJ for conducting nearly all of the investigation in DC then switching to FLA at last minute for indictment.

“Cannon also won’t tolerate DOJs nonstop requests for secrecy.

“She already denied a govt motion asking to keep names of 80+ witnesses under seal.”

MSNBC analyst Joyce Alene called for the removal of Cannon, a Trump appointee.

“Judge Cannon responds to the govt’s request for a hearing on Nauta’s lawyer’s conflicts & discloses the existence of a grand jury investigation in another district while denying gov’t’s motion to seal.

“The govt can appeal.

“This may tee up the issue of her fitness on this case.

“Looking like a good week to ask the 11th Circuit to replace the judge.”

A liberal media group, Meidas Touch, said:

“Don’t overlook the footnotes.

“The footnote in Judge Cannon’s response is basically inviting Trump to submit a motion to dismiss the case referencing rule 12(b).”

In her ruling, Judge Cannon wrote, “The Special Counsel states in conclusory terms that the supplement should be sealed from public view ‘to comport with grand jury secrecy,’ but the motion for leave and the supplement plainly fail to satisfy the burden of establishing a sufficient legal or factual basis to warrant sealing the motion and supplement.”

“Among other topics as raised in the Motion, the response shall address the legal propriety of using an out-of-district grand jury proceeding to continue to investigate and/or to seek post-indictment hearings on matters pertinent to the instant indicted matter in this district.”
