JUST IN: Appeals Court Grants DOJ Motion to Fast-Track Appeal of Judge Cannon’s Order Appointing Special Master to Oversee Seized Documents

The 11th Circuit Court of Appeals strikes again!

The 11th Circuit Court of Appeals on Wednesday granted the Justice Department’s motion to expedite its appeal to Judge Aileen Cannon’s order appointing a special master to oversee the documents seized from Mar-a-Lago.

The DOJ last Friday moved to expedite its appeal of Cannon’s order appointing Raymond Dearie as special master.

“The Justice Department is asking the 11th Circuit Court of Appeals to order all papers be filed in the case by Nov. 11, and hold any necessary hearing in the case as soon as that briefing is completed.” Reuters reported.

The federal appeals court on Wednesday sided with the Justice Department and granted its motion.

“Having consulted with the Chief Judge, the appeal will be assigned to a special merits panel from the classified appeals log randomly selected by the Clerk.” a circuit judge wrote. “That panel will decide when and how to hear oral arguments.”

Here is the expedited briefing schedule, with no extensions allowed:

Appellant’s initial brief is due on or before October 14, 2022.
Appellee’s response brief is due on November 10, 2022.
Appellant’s reply brief, if any, is due on November 17, 2022.

Judge Aileen Cannon last month appointed former FISA Judge Raymond Dearie to oversee the review of the documents taken by the DOJ-FBI during the Mar-a-Lago raid.

The Trump legal team and AG Merrick Garland and the corrupt DOJ came to an agreement earlier in the week on a potential candidate to serve as the special master in the Mar-a-Lago case.

Judge Aileen Cannon also approved Judge Raymond Dearie to oversee the review.

Biden’s corrupt Justice Department is desperate to stop a special master from reviewing the documents.

Obviously they have something to hide.

President Trump’s legal team on Tuesday requested the Supreme Court look into the Biden FBI’s raid on Mar-a-Lago.
