Former President Donald Trump’s lawyers argued in a Georgia election case that the charges should be dismissed as a violation of his free speech and noted that if he wins the 2024 presidential election, the Fulton County trial cannot proceed due to the Supremacy Clause.

The trial date could be delayed until at least January 20, 2029.

Fulton County prosecutor Nathan Wade emphasized that they are aiming to move the case forward and stick to the August trial date, while Trump’s lawyers expressed concerns about the trial interfering with his presidential campaign. (Trending: Bombshell Email Uncovered Between Joe Biden And Hunter)

“Under the Supremacy Clause and its duty to the president of the United States, this trial would not take place at all until after he left his term of office,” Trump’s attorney stated.

“It’s very possible at that time, that my client will be running for election for president of the United States for the Republican Party,” attorney Steven Sadow said, adding “the preference would be that he not be on trial during the time that he is campaigning.”

“Can you imagine the notion of the Republican nominee for president not being able to campaign for the presidency because he is, in some form or fashion, in a courtroom defending himself?” he asked.

“That would be the most effective election interference in the history of the United States.”

“I don’t think it in any way impedes defendant Trump’s ability to campaign,” Wade said.

The remaining 15 defendants in the case, including President Trump, have pleaded not guilty.
