Jason Easley reports, Trump Suffers A Big Loss In Court Hours Before He Announces 2024 Campaign:
Donald Trump got exactly what he didn’t want as the full 11th Circuit moved the DOJ appeal of a Judge Cannon ruling related to the classified documents to next week.
Here is the ruling:
JUST IN: Appeals court scheules oral arguments in DOJ appeal of Judge Cannon's special master order from Nov. 22 — in case anyone was naively hoping for a quiet Thanksgiving week. pic.twitter.com/hKrHD5oTY6

Not surprising at all. Rather, expected since 11CA had expedited the proceedings; a previous 11CA panel shot down T's challenge; and the issues are not complex and have been fully researched by 11CA law clerks.

The DOJ is appealing to the 11th Circuit after Judge Cannon meddled in the special master process to among other things extend the timeline to benefit Trump and told Trump that he did not have to prove to the special master that the DOJ planted evidence at Mar-a-Lago.
Donald Trump and his lackey judge are attempting to derail the DOJ investigation in a bid to buy the failed former one-term president enough time to get through the 2024 election, win back the presidency, and kill the probe.
However, the judicial system understands the severity of the threat to national security that Trump presents, so it is moving quickly.
This is not the way that Trump wanted things to go, as even on the day that he is making his “big announcement” the law continues to close in on him.
There was never a need for a Special Master in this case. The original deadline for the Special Master to complete his review of non-classified document was November 30, but that deadline was extended to December 16 by Judge Cannon.
A quick decision by the 11th Circuit to void her order for a Special Master would end the Special Master’s role. The DOJ would be able to expedite its review of documents seized from Trump at his home in exile in Mar-a-Lago, and present its Espionage Act case to a criminal grand jury for issuance of an indictment.
What to do about this corrupt Trump judge Aileen Cannon is a whole other matter.
