Elections are extremely important these days, especially because of the politicization of the Judicial Branch of government.
Americans go to the polls to vote for candidates in lieu of their campaign promises, and at times help elects their state’s U.S. Senators, and every four years the nation’s Chief Executive Officer, The President of The United States.
The President and Senate are involved in the nomination and confirmation of judges to sit on the various federal courts.
In general, politicians know how certain judges will most likely interpret the law, based on their previous rulings and writings, plus they consider which president nominated them.
Sometimes though, a judge can come back to bite the hand that nominated them.
U.S. Magistrate Judge Bruce Reinhart, who was nominated by President Trump, yes someone in the former president’s team obviously dropped the ball on this recomendation, was apparently judge-shopped by the DOJ and signed off on an unprecedented search warrant allowing the FBI to raid Trump’s private home in Florida.
Following the massive public backlash over the questionable raid, the judge just ordered the release of a redacted version of the affidavit used to justify the FBI’s raid.
Fortunately for the Trump team, another judge appointed by Mr.Trump just approved his legal team’s request to have a neutral person come in and try to fix the mess made by the FBI.
On Saturday, a Trump-appointed US District Judge Aileen Cannon from the southern district of Florida announced the “preliminary intent to appoint a special master” to review all of the records seized by the FBI during its unprecedented raid on President Trump’s home at Mar-a-Lago.
Judge Cannon said the FBI raid on Mar-a-lago “involved political calculations” to diminish the leading voice of the Republican Party just months before the midterm election.
FOX News reported:
A federal judge on Saturday announced its “preliminary intent to appoint a special master” to review records seized by the FBI during its unprecedented raid of his Mar-a-Lago home earlier this month, at the request of former President Trump and his legal team, citing the “exceptional circumstances.”
Trump and his legal team filed a motion Monday evening seeking an independent review of the records seized by the FBI during its raid of Mar-a-Lago earlier this month, saying the decision to search his private residence just months before the 2022 midterm elections “involved political calculations aimed at diminishing the leading voice in the Republican Party, President Trump.”
U.S. District Judge from the Southern District of Florida Judge Aileen M. Cannon on Saturday afternoon said that the decision was made upon reviewing Trump’s submissions and “the exceptional circumstances presented.”
“Pursuant to Rule 53(b) (1) of the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure and the Court’s inherent authority, and without prejudice to the parties’ objections, the Court hereby provides notice of its preliminary intent to appoint a special master in this case,” Cannon wrote in a filing Saturday.
A hearing is set for Sept. 1 at 1:00 p.m. in West Palm Beach, Fla. Cannon also ordered the Justice Department to file a response by Aug. 30 and provide, “under seal,” a “more detailed Receipt for Property specifying all property seized pursuant to the search warrant executed on August 8, 2022.”
