"Additional classified records were discovered in former President Trump’s Mar-a-Lago bedroom after the FBI search of his Florida estate, court records filed Tuesday reveal."

“Notably, no excuse is provided as to how the former president could miss the classified-marked documents found in his own bedroom at Mar-a-Lago,”

"The matter is now before Judge Aileen Cannon, who is still weighing this motion and several others asking her to toss the case."

"In the meanwhile, she has indefinitely delayed Trump’s trial, refusing to set a new trial date in an order earlier this month while detailing she needed more time to weigh each of the former president’s motions."

Like Joy Reid said on MSNBC, "The bribe is implied", and MAGACannon appears to be well on her way in securing a future seat on SCOTUS...

“The bribe is implied“. What does that even mean? It certainly sounds slanderous, unfounded, and ridiculous. I am shocked that you would endorse this sort of nonsense.

It sounds more and more like you would dispense with due process of any sort and simply proceeded to conviction and sentencing since the defendant is Donald Trump. Seriously, why do you have a problem with the judge being careful and deliberate in a high stakes criminal trial?

"Seriously, why do you have a problem with the judge being careful and deliberate in a high stakes criminal trial?"

I guess I have to restate what I've previously and linked to but I've found it nicely summarized:

"To say that Cannon finds herself in an entirely avoidable situation is an understatement. The primary speed bump preventing a swift speedy resolution of the issues she cites in explaining her delay is none other than Cannon herself. It’s impossible at this juncture to definitively apportion the blame for this cascading failure on inexperience, partisan malice and simply being dealt a bum hand. What is clear though is that Cannon has made what should have been one of the most straightforward cases against Trump into a quagmire of her own creation."

"Cannon’s office has struggled with the heavy workload, higher than normal turnover in her chambers, the required clearances her clerks need to handle classified material, and a new propensity for micromanaging given the increased scrutiny on her after the special master ruling."

"That includes her frankly bizarre decision to have the prosecution and defense spend time on crafting potential jury instructions and arguments regarding the Presidential Records Act rather than deal with the more pressing issues on her plate."

"Again, the evidentiary role of classified material would likely slow down any criminal trial, let alone one involving a former president. But given the clear evidence that Trump was in possession of the documents seized despite a subpoena to return them and attempted to foil the government’s efforts to recover them, this should be an open and shut case once it gets before a jury. Instead, Cannon has only painted herself into a corner, overcorrecting from her past mistakes in a way that has only exacerbated her subsequent follies."

“msnbc.com/opinion”.   I guess that explains it. You really do need to broaden your information circle!   These are the same clowns who, based on your previous post, are accusing a federal judge of accepting bribes with no basis whatsoever!! It is a shame the judge cannot give MSNBC the Hulk Hogan treatment.

What do you think of MSNBC’s lame-o attempt to resurrect Russian interference as a defining issue of this election?  Maybe MSNBC wants a repeat of 2016?

Jim,
I've had already posted a link to a video of a retired judge stating essentially the same thing as that in my MSNBC link. Like I previously said, I guessed you missed it.

I haven't seen MSNBC noting Russian election interference to be a "defining issue" in the 2024 election but the fact that Russia is proceeding to do the same as it did in the past is an established fact:

The latest insanity from MAGACannon: a jury may be too stupid to understand the case! Yup, another conjured-up reason not to hear it!

"Former Trump White House attorney Ty Cobb went after federal Judge Aileen Cannon on Wednesday for indefinitely postponing former President Trump’s criminal classified documents case for procedural reasons, accusing her of “incompetence.”

“And frankly, this is a case that should’ve started trial yesterday or two days ago when the original trial date was set,” he continued. “This case could have easily gotten to trial. Only her incompetence and perceived bias has prevented that.”
