| The decision by U.S. District Judge Aileen Cannon was a hot

| For one thing, its unanimity and speed emphasize the fact
| that Judge Cannon's interference in the Justice
| Department's investigation was a gross impropriety, not a
| plausible legal position. That two of the panel members
| were, like Judge Cannon, appointed by President Trump
| further emphasizes that this is a matter of
| professionalism, not a matter of ideology or the sort of
| judicial philosophy that reasonably separates conservative
| from liberal jurists.
|
| So too does the fact that the court ruled within 24 hours
| of the government's final brief--and wrote in a per curiam
| opinion, that is, in the voice of the court itself, not of
| its individual judges. In short, giving the government
| relief from Judge Cannon's injunction was a very easy
| call--one that required neither time nor any significant
| deliberation. Rather, the rate-limiting step in issuing
| this opinion was the speed with which judges of diverse
| political stripes could type.

Based on the last few days, Don Fatso may be appealing
the appointment of special master Dearing.

Good luck with that, given that he was Trump's choice.
