    Finally CNN is presenting both sides of an argument

    Judge Aileen Cannon, is a Maga-Judge. Why? She received her appointment after barely passing the American Bar Association’s minimum length of experience after law school graduation. She owes her appointment to her membership in the Federalist Society, the virtually exclusive source of Trump’s judicial selections, and to Trump himself. Her only option now in order to clean up her act is to recluse herself from the Mar-a-Lago case before her career comes tumbling down if Trump is not elected President; otherwise, she has a guaranteed spot on the Supreme Court when there is an opening, if Trump is elected as President.

    During the war in Germany, Camp Auschwitz killed more than 1 million Jews. In the long run, Nazis did not win out except for those who follow Trump. Why do they not wear white hoods and robes anymore? They are ashamed of who they have become in America today. There is a few far-right extremist still around like those who attacked our capitol on January 6, 2021 calling themselves true Americans. NO! These people are homegrown terrorist who want to over throw America and Democracy. Laws need to be changed so we can keep America safe from these hoodlums. They need to pay a price for what they're doing to our country. Groups like The Boogaloo Boys, QAnon, The Proud Boys, The Three Percenters and The Wolverine Watchmen have been credited to Trump and a big majority of the Republican Party. These idiots are calling for a civil war in America. Proud Americas? NO! Proud Homegrown Terrorist who will not stop at anything to over take America as Hitler did in WWII. Expose these people now.

    Law enforcement will be watching the crude and nasty comments left here so they'll know who you are. The truth about you cannot hide forever. Vote for Democracy in November, not Trumpocracy..

    Her comment indicates to me that she has specific knowledge of what is in those classified documents. If so, who told her and when?

  • PapaSom on September 20, 2022

    Judges don’t have a right to be ‘silly’ or nonsensical. It’s clear this judge has joined Trump’s defense team. She should’ve recused herself immediately, but with these erroneous rulings she needs to be impeached and relieved of her lifetime appointment.

  • Robert Taylor on September 20, 2022

    Can't wait till they start investigating cannon she's disgraceful

  • Alan Jay on September 20, 2022

    A former CIA officer sides with the government. What are the odds. About the same as a Democrat voter……..100%

  • Richard Byrd on September 20, 2022

    There is a conflict of interest in this case because she was appointed by trump.
    She is clearly biased towards trump. We give judges too much ultimate authority and many develop a God complex. There needs to be more oversight and more repercussions for incompetence and corruption.

  • Glynn Akina on September 20, 2022

    That's what happens when the AG wants to be nice to corruption.

  • Alex Perez on September 20, 2022

    Trump the racist is being helped by a Latina judge. Smh.

  • Warrin Bang on September 20, 2022

    Only those who actually classified a document would know if a particular document has information that needed to be classified.

  • Yan Z. on September 20, 2022

    I know many people who worked for the government and many of them were spiteful, mean and used government power to twist, contort and distort the law like the Justice Department is doing and act like they are miss goody two shoes open and honest. The Constitution is there to protect the accused.

  • Yan Z. on September 20, 2022

    If she was a man you wouldn't complain you sexist, bigoted misogynist. That's why women must be empowered! She is a role model for all young girls to look up to and know that they can do anything in this country despite hateful bigots like you trying to keep them in traditional liberal, Democratic lifestyles.

  • Herman ten Klooster on September 20, 2022

    Corruption has crept into the US Judicial system. This judge is a clear example.

  • Michael Lewis on September 20, 2022

    Trump is not supposed to have the documents in the first place. Duh? 🤬🤬

  • Mimmo Maiolo on September 20, 2022

    How about "stupid." She may as well be urinating on the bench. It's equivalent to what's in her head. Piss all!!!!!

  • Camille on September 20, 2022

    Kudos to Donald for knowing where to find the worst people. It's his genius.

  • Anthony Weeks on September 20, 2022

    Weren't those document de-classified because of the Russian collusion hoax ?

  • Sam on September 20, 2022

    This judge has repeatedly shown bias and allegiance to Trump. She needs to be removed from this case.

  • Amu G. on September 20, 2022

    This judge loves Trumps cruelty. Doesn’t give a fig about American security. Like her hero a fascist

  • Estela Fowler on September 20, 2022

    It was silly!! She said," how do I know they are really classified.?" You fon't, that's why they are investigating. Trump illegally kept it for almost 2 years. I just hope , this Judge informations are not in one of those boxes. Remember she was Trump's appointee.

  • Brian McNevin on September 20, 2022

    Cannon must have went to the Roland Freisler school of Law!

  • Tony Diaz on September 20, 2022

    If the DOJ doesn't already have justification in the form of evidence to raid Trump's home and a document storage discussion has no legal bearing law binding statutes. There is no criminal law here people so the DOJ better have had evidence going into the raid and not suddenly. Hey have you verified if Trump declassified the documents the DOJ ordered the FBI to steal because now the DOJ realizes that they are not above the law either. So now that the bias is held back and honest eyes will look at these documents and determine based on claims and the affidavits submitted and based on that the signed warrant and how broadly scoped it was match the actions and the content of the items listed as taken or seized. I would also like to see the video footage of the entire raid. And see what over 30 agents heavily armed were doing for 9 hrs on a task specific warrant. 9 hours over 30 special agents. And a safe cracker expert. Why would they take medical records and tax records and a trove of non document or paper items like clothing or memorabilia ? And attorney client priveledged mater8als and presidential priveledged materials.? These are things that nobody has the clearance to look at in fact are forbidden by law from looking at and of possessing, seizing and leaking. And why didn't the DOJ call for a special master in it's affidavit to protect the president's civil rights while still carrying out their declared duty to Biden .
