Judge Indefinitely Postpones Disgraced Former President’s Classified Documents Trial

Source: Bloomberg

“Donald Trump’s criminal trial for allegedly mishandling classified documents has been postponed indefinitely in a blow to the Justice Department’s efforts to obtain a jury verdict before November’s presidential election. US District Judge Aileen Cannon, who is overseeing the criminal proceeding in Florida, set a new schedule for motions in the case and announced that the May 20 trial date will be pushed back indefinitely. In an order issued Tuesday, Cannon said setting a new trial date at this time ‘would be imprudent and inconsistent with the Court’s duty to fully and fairly consider the various pending pre-trial motions before the Court.'” (05/07/24)
