No-Nonsense Judge Not Playing Games with Biden’s DOJ

Biden’s Department of Justice was basically just told to knock it off in their motion to continue investigating and reviewing the documents seized in the FBI’s August 8th raid of Trump’s Mar-a-Lago estate. 

Judge Aileen Cannon just wasn’t convinced by the Department of Justice’s argument that not letting their own people review the documents constituted a national security risk. 

In the ruling from Judge Cannon, she refused to accept the DOJ’s contention that the records they were reviewing remain highly classified or contain extremely sensitive defense information that would damage our national security. 

“The Court does not find it appropriate to accept the Government’s conclusions on these important and disputed issues without further review by a neutral third party in an expedited and orderly fashion,” Cannon said in her 10-page ruling. 

The judge, a Trump appointee, appointed Raymond Dearie, a senior federal judge in New York, to lead an independent review of the seized materials. He was one of two potential special masters that were recommended by the Trump team. 

Judge Cannon asked him to complete the task by November 30th, which is a month after the date that the DOJ asked for which was October 17th. 

One of the pieces of information that make things look even worse for the DOJ is a letter from June 8th where Biden’s department ordered Trump’s lawyers to keep all records at Mar-a-Lago. Then the FBI barged in just two months later. 

Judge Cannon hasn’t minced words on this case. She issued an injunction against the FBI from any further analysis of the documents and she granted the special master request. 

Her no-nonsense approach to this case has caught the eye of many who are responding on social media. She’s basically saying that the DOJ can pound sand.
