Ty Cobb rips Trump documents judge: ‘This case could have easily gotten to trial’

Former Trump White House attorney Ty Cobb went after federal Judge Aileen Cannon on Wednesday for indefinitely postponing former President Trump’s criminal classified documents case for procedural reasons, accusing her of “incompetence.”

“I don’t think this case will move at all,” Cobb said in an interview with CNN’s Erin Burnett. “And I think the fact that she’s scheduling hearings, multiple hearings, sort of one or two motions at a time, is compelling evidence of that. Most federal judges would have long ago ruled on all the pending motions.” 

“And frankly, this is a case that should’ve started trial yesterday or two days ago when the original trial date was set,” he continued. “This case could have easily gotten to trial. Only her incompetence and perceived bias has prevented that.”

Trump is accused of mishandling classified documents after he left the White House and obstructing an investigation to recover them. Cannon, a Trump appointee serving in the Southern District of Florida, has repeatedly delayed the case, and it is now unlikely to see trial before the upcoming election.
