  1. “Erred” is putting it nicely.

    >Two of the three judges on the panel, Andrew Brasher and Britt Grant, were appointed to the court by Trump. The third, Robin Rosenbaum, was appointed by President Barack Obama. In the unanimous decision, the judges declared it “self-evident” that the public interest favored allowing the Justice Department to determine whether any of the records were improperly disclosed, risking national security damage.

    Thanks, Obama.

  2. >“[Trump] has not even attempted to show that he has a need to know the information contained in the classified documents,” the panel ruled in a 29-page decision. “Nor has he established that the current administration has waived that requirement for these documents.”

    Why Cannon continues to disregard these simple facts is beyond me. She doesn’t even try to make it look like she’s attempting to be impartial.

  3. “For our part, we cannot discern why Plaintiff would have an individual interest in or need for any of the 100 documents with classification markings. Classified documents are marked to show they are classified, for instance, with their classification level.”

  4. This is good news, and the fact that 2 of the judges on the panel were appointed by Trump is going to make the “witch hunt” argument even more ridiculous. Now we wait to see if SCOTUS takes this on their shadow docket and decide to light the tattered remnants of the legitimacy on fire.

  5. How has trump not had a heart attack by now? The sheer amount of stress of all the legal proceeding, the idiots he is and all around him that worship him, and the McDonald’s. It has to be an anomaly he is still somewhat functional

  6. Remember Trumps goal is merely to delay. His attorneys will continue to work in this direction. This loss will merely usher in another argument that’s not intended to win, just to slow this case down to a crawl. I’m glad to see this ruling but I’ll believe he might face some accountability when he’s charged and the case goes to trial. Until then it will be an endless series of arguments that go no where meant to run out the clock.
