Judge Aileen Cannon Gets Feisty with Trump: No Delays Until After the 2024 Election
Oh boy, here we go again. Former President Donald Trump just can’t catch a break these days. It seems like he’s constantly finding himself in hot water and facing one legal battle after another. And now, Judge Aileen Cannon is not letting him off the hook so easily.
In a recent ruling, Judge Cannon gave Trump a few technical delays for his classified documents trial schedule because, well, let’s face it – the guy has got a lot on his plate right now. But she drew the line at granting any delays until after the 2024 election. Ouch! Talk about bad timing.
Judge Cannon made it crystal clear in her ruling: “Defendants’ Motion to Continue Trial…is DENIED WITHOUT PREJUDICE.” Translation: Sorry Mr. Trump, no delay for you…at least not until we’ve had ourselves a scheduling conference on March 1st of next year.
Now, some folks might be wondering why Judge Cannon decided to be so strict with ol’ Donnie boy. Well, there are actually a couple of reasons behind her decision.
First off, Trump already has two other criminal trials going on that happen to overlap with this classified documents trial. I mean seriously, who does this guy think he is? Does he really need all these trials? It’s like he’s trying to compete for some kind of record or something.
The second reason is that this particular trial has become even more complex than originally anticipated. There’s been an increase in discovery (which basically means they found even more juicy stuff). So yeah, things have gotten pretty messy and disorganized – kind of like Trump’s Twitter feed during those late-night rant sessions.
This ruling shouldn’t come as a surprise, considering Judge Cannon’s track record. She previously gave Special Counsel Jack Smith some extra time to produce discovery materials, so it’s clear that she’s not afraid to be flexible – within reason, of course.
But let’s get back to Trump for a second. The guy tried to pull a fast one and delay the trial date in May, but Judge Cannon shut that down real quick. She still wants this show to go on as scheduled (because who doesn’t love a good courtroom drama?), but she is willing to adjust the pre-trial schedule if necessary.
Sorry Donnie boy, but it looks like Aileen Cannon isn’t buying your stall tactics. And honestly, we can’t blame her. After all the chaos and controversy surrounding Trump during his time in office, it’s refreshing to see someone stand up and say enough is enough.
Now here comes the real kicker for Trump – he won’t be able to delay any of these trials until after the 2024 election. That means while other presidential candidates are busy campaigning and wooing voters with their witty slogans and baby-kissing antics, Donald J. Trump will most likely be sitting in a courtroom defending himself against various charges.
Talk about bad timing! Can you imagine? It’ll be like watching an episode of Law & Order: Presidential Edition – complete with dramatic arguments, surprise witnesses, and maybe even a few tears shed…although probably not from Trump himself.
The only glimmer of hope for Mr. Former President is his RICO trial in Georgia later this year. If he goes through with it (which he probably will because let’s face it – he loves attention), then his criminal trials will take up most of his precious campaign time…except for maybe those sweet couple months in spring or August when he might catch a break before diving back into the legal circus.
But let’s be real here, folks. We all know Trump thrives on attention and controversy. He loves being front and center, stealing the spotlight from anyone and everyone around him. So maybe, just maybe, he secretly enjoys these trials. Maybe he sees them as an opportunity to remind the world that despite all his failures and shortcomings (which there are many), he’s still a force to be reckoned with.
Whatever the case may be, one thing is for sure – Judge Aileen Cannon isn’t putting up with any of Trump’s nonsense. She’s standing her ground and making it clear that she won’t allow him to dictate the timeline of these trials.
