Trump will see this as a betrayal of the highest level.

Ever since the moment the sprawling stolen government document case dropped against ex-President Trump, legal experts have been sounding the alarm on the corruption that likely lies just beneath the surface, after the judge appointed to this case just so happened to be the notorious federal judge who was hand-appointed to her position in the Southern District of Florida by none other than Donald himself — Judge Aileen Cannon.

In fact, throughout the Mar-a-Lago document case, we have already seen Cannon hand down multiple rulings that appeared to be blatantly in favor of the man who torpedoed her career to the top.

However, it seems that Donald’s chips have run out when the Florida federal judge, after Cannon delivered a brutal ruling this morning that Trump will undoubtedly see as a betrayal of the highest level.

Recently, the Trump legal team’s defense efforts have been focused on delaying the ex-president’s trial date for as long as humanly possible, following the bombshell 37-count federal indictment lodged against him by DOJ Special Counsel Jack Smith. According to Trump and his lawyers, the trial should be pushed off until after the 2024 presidential election, in which Trump is running as a Republican candidate. Donald’s legal team has all but said the quiet part out loud, stating that the trial should be pushed off until after the election (that they are assuming their client will win) so Trump can make the charges against him “go away.”

Special Counsel Smith was quick to dismantle the Trump team’s motion to delay in a brutal court filing late yesterday afternoon, dismantling their argument point by point until there was nothing left of it.

This morning, Cannon made it clear that if the Trump legal team was banking on her corrupt support for the ex-president, they put all their eggs in the wrong basket, after she set a trial date for May 20, 2024 — before the 2024 election.

Cannon’s order reads:

Following review, it is ORDERED AND ADJUDGED as follows. The Government’s Motion to Continue Trial and Revised Proposed Schedule [ECF No. 34] is GRANTED IN PART for the reasons stated below. The Court finds that the interests of justice served by this continuance outweigh the best interest of the public and Defendants in a speedy trial. 18 U.S.C. § 3161(h)(7)(A). The Court has considered the factors in 18 U.S.C. § 3161(h)(7)(B) in reaching this determination. Having done so, the Court finds that the period of delay resulting from this Case 9:23-cr-80101-AMC Document 83 Entered on FLSD Docket 07/21/2023 Page 1 of 7 CASE NO. 23-80101-CR-CANNON 2 continuance—i.e., from the date the Motion was filed, June 23, 2023, to the date trial commences—is excludable time under the Speedy Trial Act.

Calendar call in this matter will be held on Tuesday, May 14, 2024, at 1:45 p.m. in the Fort Pierce Division. The case is set for Jury Trial in the Fort Pierce Division during the two-week trial period commencing on May 20, 2024. The parties shall adhere to the following pre-trial and trial deadlines and are reminded to comply with the Local Rules in all respects and the instructions in the Court’s Orders Setting Trial [ECF Nos. 28, 55] except as superseded by this Order.”

Good luck with that, Donald.

Was the crisis in Afghanistan surrounding the pull out of American Troops Biden's fault or Trump's fault?
