BREAKING: Federal Trial for Trump’s Alleged Election Interference Scheduled for March 4, 2024

Former President Donald Trump is set to face a federal trial on charges of election interference starting March 4, 2024, as ruled by Judge Tanya Chutkan. The decision comes despite Trump’s legal team’s request for a delay until 2026, citing the substantial amount of evidence and the unprecedented nature of the case. Special counsel Jack Smith initially proposed a January 2, 2024, start date, with the trial expected to last four to six weeks. The charges against Trump include conspiracy to defraud the U.S. and obstructing official proceedings, stemming from actions leading up to the January 6, 2021, Capitol attack. Trump has maintained his innocence and accused prosecutors of political motives. The trial’s timing raises questions about its potential impact on the 2024 election.
