Special Counsel Jack Smith faces potential obstacles in the classified documents case against Trump in Florida.

With the grand jury files now under the jurisdiction of Judge Aileen Cannon, a Trump appointee, experts say she has authority to exclude key evidence like testimony from Trump’s lawyer Evan Corcoran.

“Because the case wasn’t going to be prosecuted in D.C., the rulings made as part of the grand jury investigation are not binding on Cannon,” former prosecutor Bill Shipley wrote.

Cannon also handed Trump a win by requesting “competing scenarios” from both legal teams for the jury on interpreting presidential records, which critics say could bias the jury or lead to dismissal.

Smith is said to be trapped between trying to remove Cannon, who has issued rulings favorable to Trump, or risking further delays.

Legal experts argue Cannon overstepped by making a question of law about presidential records into a jury issue.

“Judge Cannon’s bizarre ruling is yet another instance that clearly benefits Trump and demonstrates that she is in over her head as a judge,” legal expert Neama Rahmani said.

“The issue is a question of law that she should decide, not a question of fact for the jury.”

The case has taken on new significance as delays could push the trial past the 2024 election.
