Trump-Appointed Judge Responds To Request To Move Trial Date

via Sky News Australia

Former President Donald Trump’s attempt to delay his classified documents case until after the 2024 presidential election has been denied by Judge Aileen Cannon.

Cannon expressed her concern over the extensive volume of discovery in the case and the potential overlap between trial and campaign schedules.

“The quantity of discovery in this case remains exceedingly voluminous, even more so than initially thought. To be sure, the Special Counsel has taken various steps to produce discovery on a regular basis. But even with these efforts, discovery has increased sizably from initial estimates…” the judge said.

“Although the Special Counsel is correct that the trajectory of these matters potentially remains in flux, the schedules as they currently stand overlap substantially with the deadlines in this case, presenting additional challenges to ensuring Defendant Trump has adequate time to prepare for trial and to assist in his defense,” she added.

Trump’s attorney, Alina Habba, brought up the four indictments against Trump, suggesting they were aimed at disrupting his campaign.

Habba criticized the rushed timeline of the trials, alleging election interference and emphasizing the need for fair judges in dealing with the cases.

“We’re prepared. From here, we actually get to litigate the case, which, as an attorney, I look forward to. I know our legal team does as well, to get to take our own turn at looking at all of the information and our own turn to put our side out, which is something that everybody needs to remember hasn’t happened as of yet. Four indictments are simply that, an indictment, which is just one-sided B.S., for a lack of a better word, on their political scheme to interfere with the leading candidate for president,” Habba said.

Pete Hegseth then asked, “So, Alina, this is all ridiculous. It’s all a circus. It’s all meant to interfere with the timeline of the election process. That’s a given. So these questions sort of come with that sense of how it’s — but if you are planning for Georgia, the D.C. timeline was just set for March 4th, as you know, the day before Super Tuesday, much sooner than your team had anticipated. What do you anticipate for a timeline down in Atlanta? How quickly will they try to push this, in your sense, and how will you push back?”

Habba responded, saying, “Let’s be clear. The Jack Smiths and the Fani Willises and the D.A. Braggs and the Letitia Jameses, if they could have it their way, would have all trials the same week. It’s unrealistic, it’s ridiculous, and it’s obvious. So what I think is happening is the judges will have to fight it amongst themselves. You cannot have one defendant in multiple cases.”

“But if you do look at the timeline as you mentioned, every single event, every single event from the indictment to the rushed grand jury, years after the events took place when they didn’t need to rush it, they could have had it two years ago, every single thing says very clearly, Joe Biden doesn’t know what he is doing in office, so let’s distract America so that all we talk about is President Trump and these hoaxes. That’s really all they are. So we are going to obviously argue that it’s impossible for one person to be in four different places. We’re going to argue that this is election interference.”

“And then we will take a look at each individual person and say, ‘You ran for office based on the fact that you said you would get Trump, and so did you and so did you, and now we need our Constitution and due process to step in and do its part.’ If we don’t have fair judges, unfortunately, we won’t get this. So, we have a great team, I love our legal team right now. I feel strong, and the president feels strong. We will take each one head-on,” she concluded.
