MSNBC Analyst Behind Effort To Remove Judge In Trump Case Says Report

Well, will you look at that? An MSNBC host seems to be behind an effort to at least influence the removal of Judge Cannon from Trump’s classified document case, according to a Breitbart report.

According to Breitbart, the controversy surrounding Judge Aileen Cannon and the orchestrated campaign against her, spearheaded by none other than NBC and MSNBC legal analyst Glenn Kirschner.

So, what’s the story here? Judge Aileen Cannon is presiding over a high-profile case involving former President Donald Trump in Florida. The case deals with sensitive documents, and it’s been postponed indefinitely amid allegations that Special Counsel Jack Smith manipulated evidence and couldn’t verify the chain of custody. This decision has sparked outrage, especially among liberals, who are unhappy that the case is delayed until after the November 2024 election.

The National Review shed some light on this by noting that more than 1,000 complaints were filed against Judge Cannon, all in an attempt to have her removed from the case. It turns out that Glenn Kirschner played a pivotal role in this campaign. He encouraged his audience through his podcast and videos to file complaints against Cannon, even providing detailed instructions on how to do so. This push resulted in a flood of complaints, but was it enough to unseat Cannon?

Abosultelty not.

The Eleventh Circuit Court of Appeals chief judge, William Pryor, stepped in and dismissed four of these complaints, citing a lack of evidence. In his May 22 order, he noted that the complaints seemed to be part of an “orchestrated campaign.” This wasn’t just speculation; the dismissal was backed by Judicial-Conduct Rule 10(b), which addresses the issue of coordinated efforts to undermine judicial officials.

Judge Pryor’s order emphasized that the complaints against Cannon lacked sufficient evidence to suggest any misconduct. This means Cannon will remain on the case, and the judicial council has instructed the court clerk to reject any similar complaints in the future.

The whole thing appears to have backfired.
