U.S. District Judge Aileen Cannon for the Southern District of Florida has demanded answers from the Department of Justice (DOJ) and Special Counsel Jack Smith regarding the classified documents case involving President Donald Trump. The order questions the justification for sealing certain documents and the legality of using an out-of-district grand jury for post-indictment hearings.

Judge Cannon wrote:

“The Special Counsel states in conclusory terms that the supplement should be sealed from public view ‘to comport with grand jury secrecy,’ but the motion for leave and the supplement plainly fail to satisfy the burden of establishing a sufficient legal or factual basis to warrant sealing the motion and supplement,”

Cannon has instructed DOJ Special Counsel Jack Smith to unseal two filings and provide a legal rationale for why a grand jury in Washington, D.C. is investigating matters related to this particular case. The Special Counsel previously stated that the documents should remain sealed to maintain grand jury secrecy, but Cannon’s order rebuked this claim, stating that the motion and supplement did not satisfy the legal or factual basis needed to justify sealing them.

Additionally, Cannon’s order raised questions about the legal appropriateness of using an out-of-district grand jury to continue investigations or to seek post-indictment hearings on issues pertinent to the indicted matter in her jurisdiction.

The judge’s demand came in response to the special counsel’s request for a “Garcia” hearing, which pertains to a potential conflict of interest. The issue at hand is related to attorney Stanley Woodward representing defendant Walt Nauta and others who might be summoned to testify in the classified documents case.

Trump and Nauta are slated to be arraigned on August 10 regarding the classified documents, and additional charges were leveled against Trump, including new charges against Mar-a-Lago employee Carlos De Oliveira, on July 27. These charges include allegations of De Oliveira moving boxes around Trump’s Florida estate.

The former president pleaded not guilty at an arraignment in Washington, D.C., denouncing Special Counsel Smith’s recent charges as “persecution.” The unfolding legal situation adds complexity to an already multi-faceted case, with Judge Cannon’s order adding pressure on the DOJ to clarify its conduct and approach to the investigation.

  6. OK, whether you think he is guilty or innocent, this prosecutor is not playing by the rules. And this judge is not going to put up with it. She could have thrown this out immediately, and I admire the fact that she would rather have it play our and him be cleared than to throw it out and have all the Liberals say that he was really guilty and she was just a MAGA Judge and she should be removed. But she is not going to let the prosecutor get away with ANYTHING!
