Judge Cannon in Florida Wants to Know if AG Merrick Garland Is Overseeing Mar-a-Lago Raid Case

Judge Cannon and Corrupt Jack Smith

Judge Cannon who is overseeing the Mar-a-Lago raid case in Florida has had enough of the lies from the prosecution.  She wants to know who is running the case.

The great Jeff Clark reports:

This is a critical issue, so Judge Cannon is right to press on it. It’s also a paradigmatic example of how Democrats like to talk out of both sides of their mouths.

On the one hand, to defeat criticism that Jack Smith works for Garland who works for Biden, ergo Smith works for Biden, his uber-Boss, Dems say, “oh but Jack Smith is independent.”

But then when Trump’s lawyers and amici say “Well, if he’s independent, then you have a bigger problem — because then he is acting as a Super US Attorney fusing the powers of all US Attorneys into one Special Counsel. And a US Attorney in a single District has to be Senate confirmed. So you’ve appointed Smith, evading Senate confirmation for him and that’s a no-no.”

Dems are then forced to respond “Well, Jack Smith does work for Garland after all, who can supervise Smith’s work. So it’s all kosher.”

So then Judge Cannon says “OK, so how closely does Garland supervise Jack Smith?”

Dems and the Biden DOJ respond: “That’s privileged. You can’t be allowed to learn how closely — or not — Garland is supervising Jack Smith and what he’s been telling Smith to do or not do.”

See how that goes round and round?

Dems can’t be allowed to have their cake and eat it too. They are allowed to get away with that kind of nonsense far too much by the so-called mainstream media.

Time to call them on their contradictory nonsense and make them choose one path or the other and live with the consequences.

See Clark’s tweet below:

Clark is referring to an article in far-left Politico on the case in Florida.

The federal judge overseeing Donald Trump’s classified documents case grilled special counsel Jack Smith’s prosecutors Friday on how closely Attorney General Merrick Garland oversees their work.

Under persistent questioning from U.S. District Judge Aileen Cannon, the prosecutors declined to divulge details and seemed caught off-guard by the inquiries. At one point, Smith deputy James Pearce said he was “not authorized” to discuss the level of communication that occurred between the attorney general and the special counsel.

“I don’t want to make it seem like I’m hiding something,” Pearce then said.

The questioning came at the end of a five-hour hearing focused on a long-shot effort by Trump to have the charges against him thrown out. Smith has accused Trump of hoarding national secrets at his Mar-a-Lago estate after his presidency and obstructing the government’s efforts to retrieve them.

Trump contends that Smith’s appointment by Garland as special counsel in November 2022 is unconstitutional and that Smith lacked the legal authority to bring the case against the former president.

Though other courts have uniformly swept aside similar challenges to the validity of special counsel appointments, Cannon — a 2020 Trump appointee to the bench — scheduled lengthy oral arguments on the matter, a sign that she was taking it seriously. During Friday’s proceedings, she gave little indication of how she intends to rule.

The Justice Department typically appoints special counsels to oversee cases in which the department’s leadership may have a conflict of interest. Under DOJ regulations, special counsels report to the attorney general but have more independence than other federal prosecutors.

Trump has publicly claimed, without evidence, that Smith is essentially a pawn of President Joe Biden. But in court, his lawyers are making a contrary argument: that Smith’s independence means he’s operating beyond the limits of what DOJ employees are permitted to do. Under the Constitution, only an officer appointed by the president and confirmed by the Senate can wield the level of power that Smith has, Trump’s lawyers claim. For decades, special counsels have not been presidentially appointed or Senate-confirmed.

Let’s hope Judge Cannon upholds the law against these corrupt individuals.

  1. I am amazed how easy the dichotomy is to see, and how much people wring their hands over an obvious US Constitutional violation with double-mindedness and fear.

    Let’s call balls and strikes here. The DOJ is corrupt, Biden is corrupt, Jack Smith doesn’t even live in the country, and all these Marxists are thumbing their nose at the American people for believing in our republic.

    Throw the damn case out and move on. Citizens being mesmerized by Ukraine so-called-news in legacy media, owned by globalists, do not get this information. They get the lie and the pro-stupidity BS as a constant diet and cannot see the farce before their eyes while the globalists steal everything, including freedom.
