Ex-Trump White House Attorney Hits Docs Case Judge With Ultra 'Petty' Description

Former Trump White House attorney Ty Cobb spotted a move that’d spell trouble for U.S. District Judge Aileen Cannon on Thursday as he offered a brutal assessment of former President Donald Trump’s appointee overseeing his classified documents case.

“The worst thing that could happen to her is that she actually does rule for Trump on this because that would go to the 11th Circuit [Court of Appeals],” Cobb told CNN host Erin Burnett on Thursday’s edition of “OutFront.”

He continued, “And then I think this petty, partisan prima donna would be put in her place and they would remove her.”

Cobb has criticized Cannon — who has been previously rebuked by the 11th Circuit — on anumberofoccasions over her handling of the case.

He recently knocked her for “kicking the can further down the road” by adding on hearings after she indefinitely postponed the trial early last month.

Cobb’s remarks arrived on the same day The New York Times reported that the judge turned down calls from her peers to step aside from the case.

The former Trump White House attorney said it’s way beyond the point of characterizing Cannon “merely as inexperienced” in light of her “consistent rulings” in Trump’s favor.

“It’s like having a race between the tortoise and hare and saying the tortoise is not a favorite. The reality is, she is slow and she’s slow on purpose,” Cobb said of Cannon’s treatment of the case.

Burnett later pointed to a request from Trump’s lawyers for an evidentiary hearing, arguing against Jack Smith’s appointment as special counsel.

Cobb said there’s “nothing really” at stake since the law requires that Cannon validates Smith’s appointment and described her decision to have a hearing — rather than denying the motion — as “silly.”

“The fact she doesn’t deny most of these motions without a hearing is silly. The fact that Trump can get a hearing on the flimsiest arguments is shocking,” said Cobb, who called it “fascinating” that she’s opened the hearing to “outsiders.”
