Judge Cannon Seems Receptive to Trump's Arguments in Fake Classified Documents Prosecution; Trump Posts $175 Million Bond in Fake NY Fraud Prosecution

Via Jazz Shaw, Judge Cannon seems open to Trump's arguments in the (Florida) documents trial.

US judge receptive to Trump documents claims in warning sign for prosecutors

By Andrew Goudsward


WASHINGTON, April 1 (Reuters) - A federal judge overseeing the criminal case that accuses Donald Trump of mishandling classified documents has signaled an openness to the former U.S. president's defense claims, in a sign that prosecutors might face a difficult road ahead.

U.S. District Judge Aileen Cannon, who was nominated to the bench by Trump, has asked Trump and prosecutors to propose jury instructions based on two legal scenarios that favor a claim from Trump that national security lawyers said have little relevance to the charges.

Trump and Special Counsel Jack Smith, who brought the case, face a Tuesday deadline to respond to the judge's order.

...


...

At issue in Cannon's recent order is Trump's claim that he treated the documents as personal under a 1978 law that allows former presidents to keep records that have no connection to their official responsibilities.

...

She later ordered dueling sets of proposed jury instructions, assuming either that the government would have to prove the records belong to the government, or that neither the judge nor the jury could question Trump's stance that they are personal.

...

Mark Zaid, a defense lawyer who has worked on cases involving classified information, said he is unaware of an instance when a document produced by a federal agency was declared a personal record by a president.

Allowing a jury to consider those claims would "give Trump a fighting chance in a jury trial that would never likely exist in another case," Zaid said.

Mark Zaid is a lefty who sides with the left in every case so of course he's the media's go-to guy for commentary.

...

Cannon ruled in Trump's favor in a legal challenge to the investigation filed before charges were brought, which was later reversed by a federal appeals court.

She has signaled support for some of Trump's other arguments, including his request for more records from the Biden administration to attempt to build a case that the investigation was politically motivated.

In a setback for Trump's defense, Cannon last month rejected an attempt to invalidate the central charge against him -- willfully retaining classified information. Cannon said Trump's lawyers could raise the issue later, noting it raised arguments "warranting serious consideration."

Matt Margolis at PJMedia thinks Jack Smith's case is "falling apart."

Jack Smith has transferred the evidence, such as it is, from his rogue grand jury investigation in DC to the Florida court.

But Judge Cannon may not be as receptive to tactics such as compelling a lawyer to violate lawyer-client confidentiality as the Banana Republic DC court was.

"Special Counsel Jack Smith could be blocked from using evidence against Donald Trump contained in grand jury investigation files, which were transferred to the former president's Florida classified documents case this week, a former prosecutor has suggested," reports Newsweek. "In 2023, a grand jury in Washington, D.C., heard evidence from witnesses--including Trump's attorney, Evan Corcoran--while considering whether charges should be brought against the former president and others for hoarding classified documents. However, Trump and his co-accused were later indicted in Florida and, under federal rules, the grand jury files were transferred on Monday to Trump-appointed judge, Aileen Cannon's court."

According to former prosecutor Bill Shipley, the transfer of the case from D.C. to Florida gives Judge Cannon control over what evidence can be included--especially testimony that may have violated attorney-client privilege.


@shipwreckedcrew
Yes but....

As I said at the time, because the case wasn't going to be prosecuted in DC, the rulings made as part of the grand jury investigation are not binding on Cannon.

She can exclude Corcoran as a witness by upholding the claim of privilege.

She can preclude SCO Smith from using any evidence she deems was obtained in an improper manner.

That's the risk that Smith ran by conducting the case in the fashion he did.

Finally, Trump has posted the $175 million bond in Tish James' rogue prosecution.


The case now goes through the appeals process -- and some court along the line is going to kill this travesty dead.

Bond filed. We look forward to vindicating our rights on appeal.

It's wrong to keep equating what Trump did with what Biden did. I've been saying all along that what Trump did was perfectly legal because he was covered by the Presidential Records Act while Biden never was.

Trump had every right to take the documents he did because as POTUS he was the ultimate declassification authority. When he took them they weren't classified. Biden never had declassification before becoming president. Equating Trump and Biden actually hurts Trump and elevates Biden.

This squeezes any room out for Trump who is a master of media to generate his own narrative (which is in fact *our* narrative) such as what a pile of shit joke we are living in.

So whatever you may believe, how the case actually goes doesn't really matter to the higher ups. They were content with Russia ending on a doddering fool stinking up embarassing joke testimony for three days. Because for two years before that they were all MUELLER IS COMING and IT'S MUELLER TIME.

It's a Boston law firm (Lawyers for Civil Rights - LCR) that has launched a number of similar lawsuits. They don't charge the plaintiffs. DeSantis was a target of the lawsuit - but his part was dismissed.

They may also be eligible for legal residence (Green Cards). Regulations allow for such if the undocumented person is a victim of a crime. The crime was kidnapping. This was reported on D.U. by someone after the news stories of their arrival on Martha's Vineyard.

Good! Hit 'em where they understand the repercussions; The Wallet. Even if the plane and bus companies win the case, they lose a lot of $money$ defending them selfs. Hopefully they will think twice before engaging in this tomfoolery!

They don't intend to be "in the minority" ever again - they intend to hold on to power, whatever it takes to do that.

They will do a coup to keep Trump out of office if necessary, but they think that they can steal (er - "fortify") the election before they have to do that.

120 When Obama first took office he famously sent Hillary, his SOS, to make nice with Russia and talking about a new era of detente. Got off to a bit of a rocky start with the idiotically misspelled Reset button but they kept at it.

When it looked like Ukraine was going to side with Russia in a trade deal over the west, western countries and intel agencies ran a coup in 2014 and replaced the Ukrainian government with one more friendly to the west. The CIA has been helping run the country ever since. And Putin is well aware of all of it.

So along comes Trump and he wanted no part of the uniparty, decades long game of regime change. He was more interested in MAGA. So they tarred him up with a Russia hoax to cover their tracks based largely on crap they dug up in Ukraine and here we are.

It's fashionable to dump on Russia because they were the bad guys in our youth, the media tells us that they're still the bad guys - at least since they banned Russian orphans from being adopted by western homosexuals, and the people seem more serious about their religion than most westerners find comfortable.

The best way to deal with Russia is to not go out of our way to antagonize them. Who gives a shit if their leader is an autocrat?

Well, Russians have replaced "Leningrad" with "St.Petersburg" and "Stalingrad" with "Volgograd" since the Second Revolution. Not to mention that the ruthless autocrat Vladimir Putin countenanced the reburial of the Romanovs with a state funeral. That puts a burr under the saddle of the United Marxist Front. And the US Left seems to think that after nearly fifty years of the Cold War, typecasting the Russians as "evil" would be easy-peasy with the conservatives (not withstanding the Walter Duranty wing of the Dem Party's loyalty to the Marxist Brand during that time). The American People are getting antsy about the war klaxons sounding from Kalomara, especially after the Kabul Debacle. I think it's too late for Michelle.

My contention is "we" aren't persuading the average person. We don't have the means to get to them. Trump burst on the scene and reframed all the big emotional debates in our favor after we spent decades in darkness being led by traitors and skunks who hated us.

He is the shift and some of us recognized it very early on and took nothing but abuse for pointing it out. Hillary was going to romp anyone else. She was the most qualified, most amazing, most inevitable female ever until Trump reminded the world she was both a criminal and "Nasty Woman".

This may blow peoples minds, but all documents created by the executive branch are created for the benefit of The President, and are consequently, all "his/her" documents.

Consequently, he can take all of the documents he deems to be his.

Contrary to popular belief, there is no Tardis like backroom that contains a filing cabinets of all of the executive branch's documents, documents are electronically stored, sequenced and marked the appropriate classification and copy number.

Anytime a document is printed, they know how many copies are out in the wild and who has them and it's largely a misnomer to say that Trump retained documents, he retained copies of documents mostly.

224 Stanford Mathematics Education Professor Who Got Algebra Banned in SF Now Accused of ‘Reckless Disregard for Accuracy’

Jo Boaler is facing allegations of “reckless disregard for accuracy” in her work. An official academic complaint has been filed with Stanford University’s provost and dean of research.

On the question of timed tests causing “math anxiety,” Boaler has asserted that “researchers now know that students experience stress on timed tests that they do not experience even when working on the same math questions in untimed conditions.” As evidence, she cites a study by psychologist Randall Engle. However, Engle’s paper in question deals with “working memory” rather than student anxiety, and Engle himself called the assessment a “huge misrepresentation” of his work.

The first aircraft was delivered in 2021 and operational service is expected in July 2024.

That's what they are afraid of, people finally understanding that not only is there a deep state they are the ones who have been creating 99% of all of this election interference.

It's long been speculated that the binder of information that Trump had at the White House and was working to declassify was what the FBI was searching for at Mar A Lago. That CNN article that came out last December really reinforced that belief and the article spells out why.

The CIA doesn't just lose a highly classified file of documents that details what they and others were doing about the Russia hoax and it sure as hell doesn't remain hidden on it's own. Someone has it. My money would be on Orange Man Bad.

Again, the term classification is meaningless when talking about the POTUS, it's why the Presidential Records Act contains no criminal penalties.

YOU CAN'T CHARGE THE PRESIDENT FOR KEEPING HIS OWN DAMN DOCUMENTS!!!!

Which is why they tried to Judo it into a process violation crime or espionage crime.
