Seems the very biased and off the book rulings by Cannon may lead to her removal from the case by the 11th Circuit. She has insisted on a Special Master only to change the ground rules twice in how the SM is to proceed - very uncommon.

In a column for Slate, former federal prosecutor Robert Katzberg made the case that U.S. District Judge Aileen Cannon's continued interference in the work being done by special master Raymond Dearie in the matter of government documents stolen by Donald Trump could lead to the 11th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals stepping in and taking the case from her.

Earlier in the week, the Trump-appointed Cannon gave Donald Trump's legal team an assist by ruling that they did not need to comply with an order from Dearie and reply in a filing whether they believe the FBI agents lied about documents recovered at the former president's Mar-a-Lago resort almost two months ago.

As Katzberg sees it, the Department of Justice could appeal, which they did late Friday, and that they may have a compelling case to ask for Cannon's removal -- although such moves rarely occur.

Yes, they want a leftist judge on the case.
No, they want a Judge that isn't so biased in favor of one party. If you read what is being said about Cannon it's obvious she is granting Trump special rights and privileges based on him being a former president. That is contrary to the judicial norm of the law being blind and all parties receive equal treatment.

Entertaining to read the language in articles like this. Both tribes. Words and phrases which assume facts or legal conclusions. The problem is how it perpetuates or even begins the eco chamber effect. The article is an opinion piece masquerading as a collection of facts. Plenty of such on the right tribe also.

This kind of article prevents any kind of independent and thoughtful discussion.

She’s made an absolute mockery of this trial.

these people won't learn..replace the appointed judge.....if or when the case goes against trump he and his followers would have a realistic basis to once again call bias and a "fix". Right or wrong, the circuit court appointed her, replacing her just add fuel to the trump fire.

I said within a couple days of the raid that a special master was needed to protect all parties. The master will provide an independent review of the material. That review would shield the FBI and DOJ from rumors and accusations. Their rep is not great right now so they need that protection.

Despite claims that a master is unheard of, masters are common in law. The FBI resists their use by claiming their taint teams can handle it. However, this case is so unique that a taint team is not enough. In fact, the FBI admitted that mistakes had already been made.

The reality is DOJ doesn’t want any delays because of the 1/6 hearings. That committee wants any info it can get before midterms.
