image for Impeach Aileen Cannon Calls Grow as Trump Judge 'Eviscerated' by Court

Calls are growing for the impeachment of U.S. District Judge Aileen Cannon after an appeals court overturned her order appointing a special master in a high-profile case involving former President Donald Trump.

Cannon, a Trump appointee who serves as a judge in the Southern District of Florida, had granted the former president's request for a special master to review documents seized from his Mar-a-Lago residence by the FBI on August 8.

Cristian Farias, who has written about law and justice for publications including Vanity Fair and The New York Times, tweeted: "Trump judge Aileen Cannon gets eviscerated here" and quoted from the three judges' ruling.

Other social media users directed criticism at Cannon and a petition has been set up calling for the judge to be impeached.

Sirius XM host Dean Obeidallah quoted from Thursday's ruling and added: "IMPEACH Trump 'Judge' Aileen Cannon!!".

User kenneth williams said Cannon "ought to be impeach[ed] for actions unbecoming of a judge: bias deception/conspiracy to distract Gov. in performance of duty: #DOJ investigation/search warrant.".

The U.S. House of Representatives has the authority to impeach a federal judge by a simple majority vote under Article I of the Constitution. »
