Judge Aileen Cannon is planning on holding a sprawling hearing on Donald Trump’s request to declare Jack Smith’s appointment as special counsel invalid, signaling the judge could be more willing than any other trial judge to veto the special prosecutor’s authority.

The planned hearing also adds a new, unusual twist in the federal criminal national security case against the former president: Cannon on Tuesday said that a variety of political partisans and constitutional scholars not otherwise involved with the case can join in the oral arguments later this month.

Breaking Digest reported that, last month, Judge Aileen Cannon indefinitely postponed Jack Smith’s “classified” documents witch hunt against President Trump after Smith admitted to tampering with evidence in the case.

Jack Smith admitted that the FBI had tampered with the boxes containing “classified” documents seized from Trump, resulting in uncertainty regarding the order and placement of the documents.

In August 2022, the Department of Justice deceived the Court when they asserted that the red, blue, and yellow sheets seen in the viral photo of the classified documents indicated their classification status.
