Judge Aileen "loose" Cannon

I am waiting to see if she will faithfully execute the oath she took as a judge vowing to uphold the law without prejudice, or will she turn into a trump sycophant again and start giving crazy, nonsense rulings that allow him to continue his rampage against our country's society?

2. One can only hope that she's consulting with other judges

Hopefully she's getting council about the gravity of the case, and that her actions will be written about in history books forever.

I doubt she gives a rat's ass about law or history

I hope MSM shuts the front door up on their experts who last time were betting a special master would be assigned (Don't give IQ 45's incompetent lawyers any more ideas!)

5. She will NOT faithfully execute our laws, she has proven that time and again.

She will do everything humanly and even idiotically possible to ensure tfg is not convicted. She would void the indictment if she could, I'd bet. Since she can't, she will try to disallow the attorney info, and maybe even disallow the documents themselves, or insist they all have to be published (they can't) or the case has to be thrown out.

Now, I have been wrong before, I thought Jeb would be the candidate in 2016. I am still shocked at how he folded so fast. However, when I'm wrong I will admit it. I don't think I'm wrong this time, but hope I am just being a drama queen. We will see, starting Tues. I think she shows her hand then, but

He may do so again. She is open to his suggestions, even though they are lies.

I doubt if she has the integrity or the intellect to handle this case?

By the federalist society, she has no integrity and should never have been appointed anything. She has no experience, not enough for a case for this magnitude.

She might end up not hearing the case and if she does and fucks it up, she could end up going through "some things" of which I cannot detail but there have to be consequences, she's not on the SCOTUS after all.

Don't know if someone is paying her or she is just a christofascist loon, maybe both?
