There are months of gaps within the Trump proposed schedule the place nothing is scheduled. Trump’s excuse within the submitting for not beginning the trial till 2026 is that he’s too busy along with his different legal trials to squeeze the 1/6 trial in.
There isn’t any approach that Decide Chutkan, who has already been shifting the case alongside in a short time, goes to schedule the trial for almost three years from now.
It’s unsure whether or not Jack Smith will get his requested January 2, 2024 date, however the trial will begin a lot nearer to Smith’s steered date than Trump’s.
Trump has moved past delaying the trial previous the 2024 election and straight into the 2026 midterms. It’s by no means going to occur, and the truth that Trump would attempt confirms that the secret for the protection is to delay for so long as doable and hope Trump wins in 2024 and may make the federal circumstances disappear.
