The trial of Trump for the classified documents case has been indefinitely postponed.

Inicio > Breaking News: Cuba > The trial of Trump for the classified documents case has been indefinitely postponed.

Former U.S. President Donald Trump is accused in Florida of mismanaging classified documents, alongside suspects Carlos De Oliveira and Walt Nauta who, along with the former president, have pleaded not guilty, thus obstructing the Justice Department’s investigations.

Trump is also charged in Washington for crimes committed during his administration to overturn the 2020 election results. The team of lawyers from special prosecutor Jack Smith is responsible for the legal representation of the former president.

Currently, this trial is on hold pending the Supreme Court’s consideration of Trump’s claims seeking complete immunity, with a decision expected by July.

This Tuesday, Judge Aileen Cannon in Trump’s Florida case ordered the cancellation of the trial date set for May and indefinitely postponed the session. Trump was attending a criminal court session in New York for paying to buy silence. With Judge Cannon’s order, the former president will not have more trial sessions set for the other criminal cases against him.

With this measure, the judge moved the criminal trial closer to the 2024 elections, leaving Trump’s case for later. Cannon must resolve several disputes before going to a jury with the case, which could extend until the end of July this year. She also noted that there are eight motions she needs to decide on and claimed that the mismanagement of national security in this case is under new and complex circumstances.

Both sides agreed that the case would not go to the jury in May, although prosecutors are pushing for a date in July. On the other hand, Trump and the other defendants propose to hold the trial in August and September. However, Trump’s lawyers argue that a trial before the elections would be “unfair” and express concerns about the problems this delay may cause in the other criminal cases.

Cannon stated in her postponement order that she will hold a hearing for Trump’s “unlikely” request – as she claims – to review the records from the Biden administration. This hearing is scheduled for June 24 and is expected to last about three days.

According to official sources, the judge’s measure constitutes an advantage for the Republican presidential candidate for 2024. Smith’s lawyers have vehemently denied the political accusations and do not support the idea of this hearing, considering it unnecessary.

The judge also scheduled another hearing for June 21 regarding Trump’s complaint about the alleged illegal selection of Smith. In the request for the review of records from the Biden presidency, Trump claimed he has the right to a thorough review of all records from various federal agencies, including Biden’s White House, as these entities are part of the prosecution team.

Smith’s legal team argued that Trump’s claims are unfounded, that this request for evidence was unnecessary, and that the arguments from the defense lawyers are far below the standards set for this type of procedure.
