It’s been a bad week for special prosecutor Jack Smith and his ragtag team of Hillary Clinton and Joe Biden donors in their witch hunt against President Trump. Judge Aileen Cannon in Florida has had it up to her eyeballs with the antics of Smith’s team and handed down a couple of very favorable rulings for the president this week.
Judge Cannon seems to recognize that Smith’s classified documents case against Donald Trump is completely bogus, so she’s going to make Smith’s team really work for it if they even want this case to continue.
On Thursday, Judge Cannon made it clear that she is going to reschedule the fake classified document case against President Trump. All the “legal experts” on cable news are going to bleat about this. They’ll claim that because Cannon was a Trump-appointed judge, she’s showing favoritism to her “boss.” That’s absurd. Judge Cannon is simply being a good judge and not tolerating Jack Smith’s lawfare antics.
The reality is that Jack Smith did this to himself. Consider the calendar that Smith originally convinced the courts to set up.
First, the classified documents case (this one) was scheduled to start on May 20th of 2024. Smith then issued the second indictment against Trump in the DC district (the January 6 case), where the case was assigned to Hunter Biden’s old law firm buddy, Judge Tanya Chutkan (since you can’t make this stuff up). Smith asked the DC court for an expedited trial against President Trump, and Chutkan granted it by scheduling the January 6 case for the middle of March next year, just two months before the documents case was set to begin.
More importantly, in case anyone has missed the point, Smith got those two trials scheduled to begin right in the middle of the Republican primary voting season. March is pretty much the exact middle of the primary season, and May is when things could be really hot in a normal presidential election year, if no one has secured the nomination by then.
Either way, Smith got those two trials scheduled back-to-back in the middle of next year’s primary, because he is directly interfering in the presidential election and trying to stop Trump. This really is a continuation of the Russia collusion hoax being carried out by many of the same Obama holdovers who are now working in the Biden White House and in the FBI and the CIA.
Smith successfully convinced Judge Chutkan (without much effort) to give Trump’s legal team just seven months to prepare for the January 6 trial. The average amount of time that all other January 6 defendants have been given has been between 12 and 14 months to prepare. But a former president only gets half that? It’s almost childishly transparent how corrupt these people are.
So, while Trump’s legal team has only seven months to prepare for the stupid J6 trial, then they only have two more months to get ready for the classified documents trial. This is completely unfair, since Smith has submitted several tractor-trailer loads of documents and video footage in the classified docs case, just to pointlessly gum up the works.
Smith submitted more than 1,300,000 pages of unclassified documents as evidence in the case, which Trump’s legal team will have to read. I don’t know about you, but it takes me a solid, uninterrupted weekend to read a 400-page book. 1.3 million pages of “evidence?” That’s ridiculous, and Trump attorneys were supposed to read all of that while getting ready for the J6 trial as well.
Not to mention the fact that Smith has submitted 5,500 pages of classified documents in the case. All of President Trump’s lawyers had to get security clearances before they would be allowed to read those. The government only set up a sensitive compartmented information facility (SCIF) where they could read the documents in Florida a couple of weeks ago, so they’ve barely even started reviewing the evidence.
It’s all incredibly unfair, so Judge Cannon is going to delay the documents case. We don’t know when it will be rescheduled, but hopefully not until after the 2024 election.
On Thursday, Smith’s team of prosecutors issued another huge supplemental document dump in the case, which infuriated Judge Cannon even further. As if 1.3 million pages wasn’t already enough. On Friday, Judge Cannon issued a judgment that all future supplemental filings from Smith’s team can be no more than 200 words in length, unless they get prior consent from her. Any supplemental filings that violate that order will be automatically dismissed.
In other words, Jack Smith is getting his rear end kicked in Florida, because he’s had the misfortune to draw a serious judge for that case.
