So ridiculous she has been publicly peer reviewed.

I wonder if Judge Cannon ever wished to be famous? Well, she got her wish.

Soooo... if she had been on "The Apprentice" even Trumpansy would have to fire her.

Ironic

Cannon is lucky she has a lifetime appointment. Any other position and her career would be over. How can anyone take any ruling from her seriously ever again after her display of ignorance and bias in this case?

Ah, man. She was just defending her owner, like any good dog.

There's no telling what Trump promised her. He's not one to part with cash so I'm guessing he'd appeal to her ego . . . maybe something like he'd consider her for an appointment to the U.S. Supreme Court when he got re-elected.

That pretty heady stuff.

BTW, not excusing Cannon's ignorance but I recognized Trump's ego in Cannon's ruling. It sounded a lot like he had a hand in the drafting.

I hope she smartens up. (probably not) Because all she got for her work was a drubbing and likely a long gig as a judge in Traffic Court.

She just leapfrogged the competition to join Kavanaugh, Barrett, Gorsuch, Scalito, and Thomas on SCOTUS.

Trump is Cannon's Special Master.

"Cannon is lucky she has a lifetime appointment. "

Maybe that is something worth considering changing in an effort to reform our courts. Especially for the supremes. Since the courts can't seem to manage themselves ethically maybe Congress needs to step in.

Ha!! Congress stepping in ... I made a funny!!

Federal Judges can be impeached by the House of Representatives and removed from office after being convicted in the Senate.

Some of Trump's appellate judges have been auditioning for that for years now. Go check out the opinions of people like James Ho and Neomi Rao if you want to see some truly skilled Trump knob-slobbing.

Dems are too cowardly to bother and Republicans will never provide 15-20 votes for it.

From the cited article...

... Technically, the 11th Circuit ruled against Trump, but much of its reasoning reads like a ruling against Cannon herself"a vehement repudiation of her sloppy effort to run interference for the president who appointed her. Most notably, the panel emphasized the most dangerous consequence in Cannon's decision: In twisting the law for Trump, the decision created a startling and unlawful threat to national security....

This article is not the only place that I saw this interpretation of the 11th Circuit's ruling.

The Eleventh Circuit Cleans Up the Mess
www.lawfareblog.com

...The ruling Wednesday evening by a unanimous panel of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Eleventh Circuit to slap a partial stay on a lower court's ruling that froze the Justice Department's Mar-a-Lago investigation should surprise nobody.

The decision by U.S. District Judge Aileen Cannon was a hot mess[1], as we and others detailed when she handed it down, and the grounds for an almost-inevitable appellate court intervention were obvious at the time. That said, the 29-page opinion is important in a number of respects.

For one thing, its unanimity and speed emphasize the fact that Judge Cannon's interference in the Justice Department's investigation was a gross impropriety, not a plausible legal position. That two of the panel members were, like Judge Cannon, appointed by President Trump further emphasizes that this is a matter of professionalism, not a matter of ideology or the sort of judicial philosophy that reasonably separates conservative from liberal jurists.

So too does the fact that the court ruled within 24 hours of the government's final brief -- and wrote in a per curiam opinion, that is, in the voice of the court itself, not of its individual judges. In short, giving the government relief from Judge Cannon's injunction was a very easy call -- one that required neither time nor any significant deliberation. Rather, the rate-limiting step in issuing this opinion was the speed with which judges of diverse political stripes could type. ...


As usual with lawfareblog.com, if you have the time, the entire article is worth a read.

Another view...

Trump's defeat in the Mar-a-Lago "special master" case, explained
www.vox.com

...Even Trump's own appointees had no patience for the rogue judge who sabotaged the DOJ investigation into the former president.

Allow me to summarize a federal appeals court decision gutting a series of pro-Trump orders with a single scene from the 1995 failson comedy Billy Madison[1]: As the appeals court decision makes clear, everyone who read Judge Aileen Cannon's decisions benefiting Trump is now less intelligent for having done so.

The United States Court of Appeals for the 11th Circuit's decision in Trump v. United States utterly savages former President Donald Trump's efforts to slow down a criminal investigation into classified documents that the FBI seized from Mar-a-Lago, his Florida residence. It is equally dismissive of Cannon, the Trump-appointed federal district judge in Florida who ordered the Justice Department to halt this criminal investigation, at least temporarily....

Congress and the Executive need to reform the court. Just enlarging it isn't the answer. However, randomly selecting SCOTUS justices for each term from appellate judges with substantial experience is. Their appointment to the court would last for a single term and they would revert back to being appellate judges and a new crop of justices would be selected for the following term. The outgoing justices would select the cases to be heard by the incoming justices.
