The Democrats have weaponized the judicial system with the hopes they can keep Trump off the ballot.

One of their problems is that their cases are being handled by activist prosecutors who keep confusing their feelings with legal realities.

Now the judge in charge of Trump’s document case, just made Jack Smith look like a blithering idiot.

Trump appears in Florida court to request a modified trial schedule in documents case

Donald Trump is facing down a judicial storm that has been brought by Radical Left activists masquerading as prosecutors. 

But Judge Aileen Cannon might be preparing to deliver a major blow to one of the efforts. 

Cannon is presiding over the classified documents case that has been brought by Special Counsel Jack Smith.

Attorneys representing the former President appeared at a hearing in Fort Pierce, Florida on November 1st to discuss the potential delay of the trial that is currently on the docket for May of 2024. 

Cannon has already placed a pause on any further litigation while she considers a motion by Trump’s team to extend deadlines for the case. 

The motion was filed after Trump’s team accused Smith’s team of holding up the discovery process and delaying the release of evidence necessary to defend him in this case. 

Now they are stating their concern with the timeline of the trial.

Trump’s team argues that Jack Smith is purposely making it difficult to defend the former President

Trump’s team says that the trial as currently scheduled would create difficulties for the attorneys. 

They say the DC trial regarding Trump’s alleged involvement in the January 6th protest has been set for March and his Florida trial regarding his document handling are too close together.

“The March 4, 2023 trial date in the District of Columbia, and the underlying schedule in that case, currently require President Trump and his lawyers to be in two places at once,” they argue. 

Trump’s team further said that despite Smith’s promise “that ‘all’ discovery would be available on ‘day one,’” they are still dealing with getting the proper evidence released to Trump. 

The attorneys are still waiting to receive access to “the classified documents at issue in more than 25% of the counts…” 

Using dilatory tactics to make it difficult to defend Trump seems to be Smith’s primary strategy in this case.

But Cannon is seeing right through these crooked tactics.

Judge Cannon will consider a “modified schedule” for Trump’s documents trial

CNN reporter Julie Kelly attended the November 1st hearing, and she said that Cannon seemed “skeptical about special counsel’s assurances the March 4 trial date for the Washington, D.C. case won’t run into the May 20 trial date for classified documents case.”

Cannon demanded that Smith provide “an example of the DOJ bringing two criminal cases against the same defendant in ‘compressed’ schedule while demanding trial dates two and a half months apart.” 

According to Kelly, the judge “admonished” an attorney working for Smith saying he lacks “understanding to these realities.”

Now Cannon is considering changing the schedule for the documents case. 

Judge Cannon cited, “voluminous discovery, discovery delays, late delivery of secure location to review evidence and Trump’s conflicting trial schedules.”

If Cannon approves a “modified schedule”, then that could restore some balance for Trump in his case.
