Mary Trump slams judge for considering change to uncle's documents trial

 November 6, 2023

The judge overseeing former President Donald Trump's classified documents case made headlines last week by suggesting that she may be willing to delay the start of his trial.

While the move may have given Trump a reason to smile, the former president's niece is anything but impressed. 

Mary Trump says judge is in uncle's "pocket"

According to The Hill, Mary Trump recently lashed out at United States District Judge Aileen Cannon in a video she posted to her Substack.

"In Florida, in the trial of the classified documents, the situation is much worse. Donald’s personal pocket judge Aileen Cannon, continues to protect her favorite defendant, at all costs," Mary Trump declared.

"[T]his woman is clearly in the tank for Donald, and she’s tipping her hand at practically every opportunity to show one, her contempt for the prosecution, and two, her clear desire to push this trial back as much as possible, so that it won’t interfere with Donald’s chance of getting reelected," she added.

Mary Trump has long been a fierce critic of her uncle and even accused the former president of being alienated from his children.

Judge concerned about possible conflicts with other cases

Meanwhile, the Washington Examiner reported last week that Judge Cannon said she is open to "reasonable adjustments" to Trump's trial schedule.

New York Times correspondent Alan Feuer was in the courtroom, and he said Cannon expressed concern over the potential for conflicts with Trump's other trials.

In addition to prosecuting Trump over his handling of classified documents, Special Counsel Jack Smith has indicted the former president in Washington, D.C. on charges relating to his conduct after the 2020 election.

Trump faces four criminal cases and one civil lawsuit

Trump also faces additional state-level charges brought by Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg and Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis.

What's more, the former president is the subject of a civil fraud lawsuit brought by New York Attorney General Leticia James.

"While Judge Cannon didn’t say from the bench what adjustments she intends to make she did express skepticism that everything could be 'accomplished in this compressed period of time,'" Feuer wrote.

" A free people [claim] their rights, as derived from the laws of nature."
