A federal judge has temporarily halted the federal election interference case against former President Donald Trump as he advances his appeal citing presidential immunity, suspending all impending deadlines and court dates.

This decision is a significant setback for Special Counsel Jack Smith, who sought to see Trump tried and convicted prior to the November 2024 election.

The pause reflects the complex legal landscape surrounding presidential immunity, with profound implications for the separation of powers principle, and signifies a pivotal juncture in the ongoing legal conflict. (Trending: New Movie Obamas Helped Make Raises Eyebrows: ‘Don’t Trust White People’)

“If jurisdiction is returned to this court, it will—consistent with its duty to ensure both a speedy trial and fairness for all parties—consider at that time whether to retain or continue the dates of any still-future deadlines and proceedings, including the trial scheduled for March 4, 2024,” a federal judge noted.
