Activist Monica Lewinsky on Tuesday expressed support for the impeachment of Judge Aileen Cannon, who has presided over the as-yet-untried Mar-a-Lago documents case against former President Donald Trump.

Cannon, whom Trump appointed, is handling special counsel Jack Smith's case against the former president over his storage and possession of materials at the Florida estate. Trump has pleaded not guilty and contends that the case is part of a broader political witch hunt designed to derail his 2024 bid for the White House.

Cannon, for her part, has drawn scrutiny from the left over her appointment by Trump and her decisions which have delayed the trial and possibility of its pre-election resolution.

"[I] awakened angry about the documents case in florida. it is INSANE that it hasn’t moved forward to trial, and i hope judge cannon is impeached," Lewinsky posted on X. "IF the documents had been declassified (which they weren’t) then all trump had to do was xerox them and return originals that were being asked for and explain they were declassified (again, for those in back, which they weren’t)."

"IF it had been an honest (ahem) mistake to take them… just return them — LIKE EVERY OTHER PRESIDENT WHO WAS FOUND TO HAVE CLASSIFIED MATERIALS IN THEIR PRIVATE POSSESSION. (which still would have warranted an investigation but maybe not resulted in a trial.) the danger and damage done by this judge is mind-numbing," she went on.

Lewinsky is most well-known as the former White House intern at the center for former President Bill Clinton's impeachment scandal. She has since become an author, activist, and public speaker.
