Lawrence O’Donnell: Trump’s ‘Special Master’ Judge Tops GOP Short List For Supreme Court


Cannon, appointed to a federal bench by Trump in 2020, “publicly applied … in writing” for a future emptiness on the high court by granting Trump’s request for a “special master” to review documents seized from his home by the FBI. The intervention has been questioned by legal experts, one in all whom called Cannon “biased and corrupt.”

O’Donnell said if Trump (or Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis) is elected president, the short list will include only her name and it will remain there “for so long as it takes for one more Republican to win the Electoral College.”

Cannon issued the order this week for an independent arbiter over the objections of the Justice Department, which is investigating Trump for allegedly squirreling away classified material at Mar-a-Lago. Trump has claimed the fabric is protected by “executed privilege.” Cannon asserted that Trump could suffer “reputational harm” if he were to be indicted.

O’Donnell scoffed at Cannon’s concern for Trump.

“You can not suffer reputational harm if you’ve got already destroyed your repute,” he snapped.
