Judge Sets TRUMP Classified Documents Trial Date For May 2024

A Busy Day For Legal News in TRUMP World

BBC NEWS 22 JUL 2023

Court date for former President DONALD TRUMP’s trial for allegedly mishandling classified documents: May 20, 2024 in Fort Pierce, Fla.

The case was initially scheduled for mid-August of this year. Cannon noted in her filing that she wanted the trial date moved because “the interests of justice served by this continuance outweigh the best interest of the public and Defendants in a speedy trial.”

The new timeline is a blow to Trump, whose legal team requested the court push the trial until after the 2024 presidential election.

Instead, should the timing stick, the trial would come amidst Trump’s campaign for the White House — well past most states’ presidential primaries, but before the summer’s national nominating conventions.

That could be something of a worst-case scenario for the GOP: With the primaries mostly complete by mid-May, the party’s most likely presidential candidate will be in a highly publicized criminal trial just five months before Election Day.

But the timing isn’t exactly a win for special counsel JACK SMITH, either. Cannon called Smith’s proposed schedule “atypically accelerated and inconsistent with ensuring a fair trial.”

Meanwhile, in Georgia … With indictments possible in the coming days, Trump’s attorneys filed a Hail Mary of a motion in an attempt to quash Fulton County DA FANI WILLIS’ investigation into the former president’s efforts to overturn the election in 2020 in Georgia, reports WaPo’s Holly Bailey.

The motion, which was reassigned to a court outside of Fulton County, alleges that Willis “fundrais[ed] for her reelection campaign on the back of this case.” If granted, it would bar the Fulton County DA’s office from continuing its investigation, and throw out both the evidence and final report of the special grand jury convened by the office.

This latest filing comes just days after the Georgia Supreme Court unanimously rejected a similar motion from Trump’s team, which sought to bar Willis from the case and throw out the findings.

And, in New York … Former Trump attorney MICHAEL COHEN agreed to settle his lawsuit against the Trump Organization over disputed legal fees stemming from the Mueller investigation, NYT’s Ben Protess, Jonah Bromwich and Kate Christobek report. The 2019 suit, in which Cohen accused the organization of failing to follow the terms of an agreed-upon deal and cover more than $1 million in legal costs, was set to go to trial next week.

“The settlement is not yet finalized and the details will be kept confidential. The judge in the case, JOEL COHEN — who is no relation to Mr. Cohen — said that he would delay the trial pending a final agreement.”

Even so: “A separate lawsuit that Mr. Trump filed against Mr. Cohen in Florida federal court remains active, and Mr. Cohen is still expected to be the star witness against the former president in a Manhattan criminal trial next year.”

And, at the White House … President JOE BIDEN and his advisers continued their strategic silence on Trump’s legal woes. Jonathan Lemire writes that though the decision “is rooted” in the president’s promise to not intervene with the DOJ, “it also hints at what is likely to become a broader Biden campaign strategy: There will be plenty of other people who will do that work for him.
