The Donald Trump-appointed judge who named a special master and wrongly blocked the Department of Justice from investigating the former president has reportedly been assigned to preside over the historic Mar-a-Lago classified documents criminal case. That’s according to reports from ABC and the New York Times, citing people familiar with matter and the summons sent to Trump’s legal team.

U.S. District Judge Aileen Cannon is the jurist that a panel of Republican-appointed judges on U.S. Court of Appeals for the 11th Circuit found “improperly” ruled in Trump’s favor by deferring to his attorney-client/executive privilege claims and his status as a former president — appointing a special master and blocking the feds from continuing their probe after Mar-a-Lago had already been searched.
