Former prosecutor predicts Donald Trump is about to get ‘bench-slapped’ by the Supreme Court
.

Former federal prosecutor Joyce White Vance spoke to MSNBC’s Nicolle Wallace about the recent filing to appeal the 11th Circuit Court’s opinion to allow the Justice Department to continue its work on the investigation of the theft of government documents.

Justice Clarence Thomas is the one who generally oversees the 11th Circuit, but Vance explained that folks shouldn’t read too much into that.

“He is our Circuit Justice in the 11th Circuit. These sorts of matters go to him initially. I would expect that unless he decides to dispense with this on his own, that he will take it to the full court and it won’t be a decision made just by Justice Thomas,” she told Wallace.

She went on to talk about an extremely technical legal issue from Trump’s $3 million lawyer.

He “is arguing this was not an appealable final order. You can’t just appeal any order that a trial court enters,” she said. “It has to be a certain type of order under 1292, a final appealable order, and they say this is not. Of course, the 11th Circuit has already addressed this issue and talked through the legal insider sort of issues involving granting or excluding a stay, which is what DOJ asked here. They wanted a stay of Judge [Aileen] Cannon’s orders that didn’t permit them to use classified documents. This goes up to the Supreme Court. It seems like it should be a pretty pro forma discussion.”
