Trump Scores Big Win as Judge Cannon Approves Hearing on Jack Smith’s Legality


President Trump has just been handed another legal victory by Judge Aileen Cannon, who is overseeing the classified docs case led by Special Counsel Jack Smith.

On Tuesday, Judge Cannon approved Trump’s request for a hearing on the legality of Jack Smith’s appointment to the case.

The hearing date is scheduled for June 21.

Judge Cannon has also agreed to allow the hearing to include parties outside of the case in arguments.

The New Republic reported:

Judge Aileen Cannon has agreed to Donald Trump’s request for a hearing on whether Jack Smith’s appointment as special counsel in his classified documents case is legal, and she’s allowing parties not involved in the case to take part.

On Tuesday, Cannon granted motions from Trump’s legal team for parties not involved in his classified documents case to participate in an expanded hearing on the legality of Smith’s appointment.

These parties include conservative lawyers Josh Blackman from the Landmark Legal Foundation and Gene Schaerr from Citizens United. The other side will include Matthew Seligman, a legal scholar who thinks that Trump’s motion is “meritless.” None of these parties are otherwise involved in the case. Oral arguments on Smith’s appointment will begin June 21.

The New York Sun added:

Judge Aileen Cannon’s decision to allow three law professors to argue — in open court — whether Special Counsel Jack Smith is constitutionally appointed is a remarkable departure from precedent. It underscores the threat to Mr. Smith’s job security.

The order, docketed on Tuesday, grants the request of these legal sages — Joshua Blackman, Gene Schaerr, and Matthew Seligman —  to make their case in court at a dedicated hearing on June 21.
