Attorney George Conway expressed his utter disdain for Judge Aileen Cannon’s ruling that rejected the Department of Justice’s request to permit their investigators to resume reviewing documents seized at former President Trump’s residence.

The FBI seized thousands of documents and personal items in its thuggish raid of Trump’s home in August. The agency contends there was classified material among the items. Trump asserts it was declassified before he left office.
The standoff wound up in front of Judge Cannon who ordered that the DOJ cease reviewing the documents until a special master can be appointed to oversee the situation due to privileged information and communications.
It’s fairly obvious she does not trust the agency. Thursday, the judge denied the DOJ’s request to continue its review, stating that she is not convinced the documents are classified and not privileged. Leftists were incensed over the ruling.
Liberals are lamenting the fact that Trump appointed Cannon in 2020 which has nothing to do with the matter.
The former president’s attorney requested the appointment of a special master to review the documents instead of federal prosecutors and the judge granted it earlier in September. She has appointed Raymond Dearie, a senior judge in the Eastern District of New York, as special master, according to Politico. The DOJ is gearing up to appeal the matter to the 11th Circuit Court.

CANNON says DOJ can continue pursuing criminal aspects of their probe that don't include showing the seized materials to witnesses, and says they can brief Congress on the matter. https://t.co/eWnxByvWGn pic.twitter.com/MpcL3Ush7b

Conway made his biased and overblown opinion public on CNN Thursday concerning the issue. His hatred for all things Trump is a well-known fact.
“I don’t know that it’s going to be a huge setback in the long-term, but it’s going to delay them to some extent,” he commented. “I mean, this ruling is absolutely a disgrace. And I don’t think it’s going to take very much to overturn it. I mean, Bill Barr last week told the New York Times that the original motion by Donald Trump’s lawyers was a ‘crock of sh*t.’”
He excoriated Cannon, proclaiming that she’s not even fit to be on a federal bench because of her ruling.
“This opinion is worse than that because this opinion focuses on a motion–decides emotion that is focused on just the documents that were marked classified,” he raged. “And the judge claims in this opinion without any basis, that there are factual and legal disputes about those documents. Well, there are no factual disputes about whether a document bears classified markings. That’s ridiculous.”
A special master has been appointed and Biden’s appeal has FAILED! HUGE TRUMP VICTORY!! The FBI can’t operate in the shadows ANY LONGER!! We’ll soon find out just how CORRUPT this whole WITCH HUNT really is!!

Conway claimed that “there is no dispute” that the so-called “classified documents” seized in the raid at Mar-a-Lago belong to the government.
The leftist attorney is asserting that Trump’s own lawyers are not arguing in court that he declassified the documents and therefore it is not a valid contention. Then he went on to disparage Judge Cannon because she dared do what was legally and constitutionally ethical in the matter.
“And even Trump’s lawyers did not actually make the specific claim that these documents were somehow magically declassified by brainwaves of Donald Trump. And it doesn’t even matter whether these documents were declassified because the charges at issue here don’t deal with classification. They deal with national security interests. This opinion is absolutely atrocious. And I have to say – and I’ve never said this publicly about a federal judge in my life – you have to wonder whether this judge belongs on a federal bench,” he viciously remarked.
Later, in that same interview, Conway disgracefully and speciously claimed that Trump is “terrified about the fact that he has been caught stealing, red-handed stealing government documents of the highest, highest security nature.”
