Trump-appointed judge assigned to initially oversee the Florida case

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. Florida Federal Judge Aileen Cannon, a nominee of Donald Trump who was widely criticized for ruling in the former presidents favor during an earlier phase of the classified documents case, is expected to oversee his criminal indictment at least at first.

According to the case docket, Cannon was assigned Trumps case while a magistrate will handle his first appearance Tuesday in U.S. District Court in Miami, the latest twist in a legal battle of historic magnitude. It remains unclear at this stage, however, if Cannon will ultimately preside over the entire case.

Two people close to Trump, who were granted anonymity to speak freely, did not dispute that Cannon is expected to initially oversee the case, although it is unclear for how long.

Trump was indicted Thursday in connection with his handling of classified documents after he left the White House, a case stemming from his alleged retention of sensitive national security documents at his residence in Florida and, further, alleged efforts to impede authorities attempts to retrieve them.
