A federal judge in Washington posted this Friday the start date of the trial of the former President of the United States Donald Trump (2017-2021) for trying to overturn the results of the 2020 election and prompting -attack on the Capitol, about to begin. on December 4. March.
Tanya Chutkan, the District of Columbia federal court judge presiding over the case, has not yet set a new date for the trial to begin.
This postponement occurred because an appeals court was deciding, at Trump’s own request, whether the Republican enjoys presidential immunity from charges against him.
The defense strategy of Trump, who faces four criminal charges in several courts, consists of trying to delay the judicial calendar as much as possible to avoid it coinciding with the presidential election race in November, where he started as the favorite for the Republican nomination. .
In addition to the federal case in Washington, the Republican magnate was charged in a Georgia state court for allegedly leading a mafia plan to change the results of the state election, where he lost against the current president, Joe Biden.
In New York he was accused of allegedly irregularly paying porn actress Stormy Daniels, with whom he had a relationship, to buy her silence during the 2016 election campaign.
While in Florida he was accused of illegally removing and storing in his Mar-a-Lago (Florida) mansion classified documents that he had removed from the White House after leaving office.
In all this, the Supreme Court will study on February 8 whether the 14th amendment of the Constitution disqualifies the former president from participating in the election because several states have accused him of leading a “insurrection.”
