Smith Prosecutors Reprimanded by Judge in Classified Documents Case

Judge Aileen Cannon finally appears to have had enough of Special Prosecutor Jack Smith and his team.

Cannon went off on them this week when prosecutor David Harbach was clearly getting frustrated during a motion hearing.

Cannon told him to “calm down,” clearly upset with the tone that was being presented.

Just Calm Down

Cannon has been frustrating Smith from the outset in this case.

Smith is actually trying two cases against Trump, but he has not been able to get either of them into the courtroom because of other issues that need to be settled before Cannon is willing to try the case.

Harbach was being asked about an August 2022 meeting with defense attorney Stanley Woodward, who is representing Walt Nauta, a Trump aide who works at Mar-a-Lago.

With Harbach clearly becoming frustrated with the line of questioning, Judge Cannon told him, “I’m going to have to ask that you calm down.”

One courtroom reporter characterized the exchange as “glorious.”

Harbach claimed that Woodward’s story was a “fantasy,” stating, “Mr. Woodward’s story about what happened at that meeting is a fantasy; it did not happen.”

Woodward pointed out that there were other people who moved boxes around at Mar-a-Lago, but none of them were being prosecuted, which led him to call the prosecution of his client “selective and vindictive.”

This case was to have already started, but Judge Cannon slammed the brakes on the case, stating that she was going to indefinitely delay the case to “fairly consider the various pending pre-trial motions,” which would include the presidential immunity claim before the Supreme Court.

Cannon has taken her time issuing rulings, which has also frustrated Jack Smith, as it now appears there is no way this case or the election interference case will find their way inside a courtroom before the election takes place.

If Trump can get it to that point, and he wins the election, I doubt these cases will ever be heard.
