Judge sets Trump's federal election case trial date for day before 'Super Tuesday'

August 29, 2023

There was a time when a person would be labeled a "conspiracy theorist" if they suggested that the multiple indictments against former President Donald Trump were solely meant to disrupt his 2024 presidential ambitions.

But the evidence is all too clear at this point, especially after U.S. District Judge Tanya Chutkan scheduled Trump's trial date for his federal 202o election-related indictment for the day before the biggest primary voting day kicks off next year, also known as "Super Tuesday."

The date, March 4, was set after Trump's lawyers asked for the trial to be held in the spring of 2026, Breitbart reported.

Chutkan was demolished across social media for the blatant, seemingly politically-motivated trial date.

Chutkan defended the March 4 date, claiming it was because the public deserves a speedy resolution to the issue.

"The public has a right to prompt and efficient resolution of this matter," Chutkan said Monday, according to the AP.

"Setting a trial date does not depend and should not depend on the defendant’s personal and professional obligations," Chutkan also remarked, as Politico reported. "Mr. Trump, like any defendant, will have to make the trial date work regardless of his schedule."

Some even suggested that the trial date was Chutkan's form of election interference, given the importance of the following day.

The date even drew criticism from high-profile Republicans, like Sen. J.D. Vance (R-OH), who also labeled the maneuver as "election interference" on the judge's behalf.

Breitbart noted:

Trump faces four counts in the case, including “Conspiracy to Defraud the United States,” “Conspiracy to Obstruct an Official Proceeding,” “Obstruction of and Attempt to Obstruct an Official Proceeding,” and “Conspiracy Against Rights.”

He faces a maximum of 55 years if convicted on all counts.

It'll be interesting to see what the trial dates will be for the additional three indictments Trump faces.
