Trump started the day by suing New York state for fraud and, by the evening, had lost to the Department of Justice in appeals court in the confidential document case.
The Washington Post reported:
“For our part, we cannot discern why [Trump] would have an individual interest or need for any of the hundred documents with classification marks, ”the court wrote, noting that the suspension issued is temporary and should not be considered a final decision on the merits of the case.
The lower court “abused its discretion in exercising jurisdiction … with respect to classified documents,” the panel wrote in a 29-page opinion. Two judges on the jury were appointed by Trump; the third was nominated by President Barack Obama.
The lower court would be Judge Aileen Cannon, who nominated Trump and selected to hear his case.
Trump may request a full 11th Circuit appeal, but since two of Trump’s appointed judges have already ruled against him, he is certain he will lose.
Donald Trump may try to take the case to the Supreme Court, but as socially conservative as this court has proven to be, they are also strict about executive power, so Trump’s claims that he declassified the documents are not or he has the privilege. executive are not it is not likely to fly there either.
September 21, 2022 is the worst legal day for a former president in US history. Donald Trump and his family are facing potential financial ruin as they have been accused of a fraud scheme for over a decade. Trump’s business could be closed in New York and could face the impossibility of borrowing money, a permanent ban and a $ 250 million fine.
By the evening, Trump discovered that two judges he appointed gave the Justice Department the green light to go ahead with an investigation into its mishandling of confidential information.
Things are bad for Trump and they get worse with each passing day.
