Trump Classified Documents Trial Will Get First Hearing on August 14th in Miami with Questionable Judge, Stumbles on TV with Fox News’ Bret Baier


August will be dog days indeed for Donald Trump.

The first hearing in his classified documents trial has been set for August 14th in Miami Federal Court. Judge Aileen Cannon, whom Trump appointed, will be overseeing until the government asks for her recusal. Cannon already ruled in Trump’s favor earlier this year on the classified docs but was subsequently overruled.

Trump is the first former president to be indicted, arrested, and arraigned — and twice in the same year. He faces 27 counts in the mishandling of classified documents, bringing them from the White House to his homes, where he stored them in bathrooms and ballrooms accessible to anyone.

Last night on Fox News, Trump — who is already on tape admitting to having documents he could no longer declassify — made a fool of himself with Bret Baier, basically admitting to the allegations. Baier, surprisingly for Fox News — did what CNN’s Kaitlan Collins didn’t do in her Town Hall– and was very tough on Trump. He even called him out for hiring people during his presidency who’ve now all turned against him.
