The decision by Judge Aileen Cannon to appoint a special master in the case surrounding the raid of Donald Trump’s Florida home sent “legal analysts” into an apoplectic rage. Calls for her impeachment flowed while others suggested she had been paid off. Apparently, it is completely out of bounds for a judge to not do exactly what the DOJ wants. Who knew?
The response was especially ironic given prior attempts by the press to consider criticism of judges off limits when it suited them. As we learned from the Dobbs decision, though, it’s fine to protest and even threaten the lives of judges who flaunt the wants of the left. But if Donald Trump calls a partisan judge an “Obama judge,” well that’s just an attack on our democracy we can’t sustain. That makes sense, right?
Now, the process is moving forward to pick a special master, and the DOJ has made its requests. In a moment that is so perfectly on brand, their filing suggested one person from the SDNY and another from the DC Circuit, the two favorite jurisdictions of Democrats everywhere.
