‘Legal loophole’: MSNBC’s Hasan explains ‘the wonky rule’ that could turn Clarence Thomas into Trump’s secret weapon
.

MSNBC’s Mehdi Hasan recently offered a detailed breakdown of how the U.S. Supreme Court’s involvement in the U.S. Department of Justice’s (DOJ) classified documents investigation could ultimately prove to be favorable for former President Donald Trump.

On Tuesday, October 11, Hasan appeared on “All In with Chris Hayes” where he explained the circumstances surrounding the investigation.

“After Trump workshopped a number of outlandish lies, including the claim that the FBI planted the top secret documents at Mar-a-Lago, he decided to do what he always does: sue,” Hasan said.

“So he went judge shopping to see if he could find a sycophant within our judicial system who would tie themselves into legal knots to give him the outcome, the cover he wanted,” the journalist continued. “And it paid off. Trump was assigned right wing Judge Aileen Cannon, whom he himself appointed and who was confirmed by the Senate after he lost the last election. Cannon, a Federalist Society member, you’ll be shocked to hear, quickly went to work dismantling basic legal logic on behalf of the guy who put her on the bench.”
