In a twist of events, the judge overseeing former President Donald Trump’s case involving classified documents at Mar-a-Lago is considering granting him an extension. The judge, U.S. District Judge Aileen Cannon, who was appointed by Trump himself, raised concerns during a court hearing about the immense amount of evidence presented by prosecutors and questioned the feasibility of the current trial schedule set for May 2024. It seems like even the judge can’t believe how much evidence the prosecutors have piled up against Trump!

This case, brought by special counsel Jack Smith from the Biden Justice Department, accuses Trump of multiple felonies related to mishandling classified information. Trump, however, has maintained his innocence, claiming that all the documents he had were properly declassified under the Presidential Records Act. Smith, on the other hand, is adamant that Trump violated the Espionage Act, which is typically reserved for traitors selling state secrets to foreign countries. Talk about some serious allegations!
Judge Cannon, in her no-nonsense style, highlighted the staggering amount of evidence, including 1.3 million documents and thousands of hours of security footage. She argued that Trump’s attorneys may need more time to prepare their defense. I mean, come on, how can they possibly go through all that in such a short amount of time? It’s like asking a 5th grader to finish an algebra test in 30 seconds!
In response to the judge’s concerns, prosecutor Jay Bratt, a member of Smith’s team, tried to dismiss them and accused Trump of trying to delay the trial until after the 2024 election. But really, can you blame Trump for wanting to avoid the circus of the D.C. trial interfering with his election hopes? I wouldn’t want to deal with that mess either!
It’s worth noting that Smith has already faced a series of setbacks in court. Judge Cannon scolded Smith for using a grand jury from outside the district and demanded that prosecutors provide Trump’s team with a list of 84 witnesses. Smith even tried to store the documents more than 1,000 miles away from the alleged crime scene, which Judge Cannon rightfully called out for potentially jeopardizing Trump’s right to a fair trial. It seems like Smith can’t get anything right!
In the coming days, Judge Cannon will make her final decision on whether to grant Trump the extension he and his attorneys are seeking. Given the substantial hurdles Smith has faced and the judge’s own concerns, there’s a good chance that Trump might just get off the hook. And wouldn’t that be a sweet victory for conservatives!
