Trump's Election Subversion Case: March 4, 2024 set as trial date against the former President

A judge has set the date of March 4, 2024 for former president Donald Trump’s election subversion conspiracy trial - placing one of the biggest criminal cases in American history at the height of the next White House race. The date - a full two years before the defence team’s proposal - is the eve of “Super Tuesday”, when more than a dozen states will pick between Trump and one of his rivals to be the 2024 Republican presidential nominee. The decision could harm Trump’s hopes of recapturing the White House, and he posted an angry reaction on his social network Truth Social, calling lead prosecutor Jack Smith “deranged” and complaining of “election interference”. “Today a biased, Trump Hating Judge gave me only a two month extension, just what our corrupt government wanted, SUPER TUESDAY. I will APPEAL!” he said, although trial dates are usually not appealable. The 77-year-old has been slapped with four criminal indictments this year - twice by Smith and once each by state prosecutors in New York and Georgia. #Trumptrialdate #Donaldtrumpgeorgiaindictment #Georgiaelections2020 ~HT.98~PR.153~ED.102~

Trump's Lawyers Look to Push Election Interference Trial Back to 2026

Trump's Lawyers, Look to Push Election Interference , Trial Back to 2026. Politico reports that Donald Trump's legal team has filed court papers requesting a 2.5-year delay before choosing a jury, citing the extraordinary circumstances of the case. . Among those circumstances is over 11.5 million pages of evidence that prosecutors turned over earlier in August. Trump lawyers John Lauro and Todd Blanche's request for an April 2026 trial date sharply contrasts prosecutors' ambitious call for the trial to start in January of 2024. . The defense's request gives U.S. District Court Judge Tanya Chutkan, who said she will set a trial date by August 28, a critical choice to make. Trump's legal team also noted the unprecedented nature of the former president being prosecuted by a Justice Department led by his political rivals. In this District, ordinary order when faced with such overwhelming discovery is to set a reasonable trial schedule, commensurate with the size and scope of discovery and complexity of the legal issues, John Lauro and Todd Blanche, Donald Trump's legal team, via Politico. The government rejects this sensible approach. Instead, it seeks a trial calendar more rapid than most no-document misdemeanors, requesting just four months from the beginning of discovery to jury selection, John Lauro and Todd Blanche, Donald Trump's legal team, via Politico. However, there is a possibility that Trump could be back in the White House by the suggested start date. This means that Trump could appoint an attorney general who could dismiss the charges, or he could issue himself a presidential pardon. Trump has been charged by special counsel Jack Smith with three conspiracies to overturn the results of the 2020 election.
