Trump wants the election process to be postponed until 2026

In a motion filed Thursday night, Trump’s team has requested that the case in the former president’s electoral subversion be pushed back to April 2026 – a far cry from Special Counsel Jack Smith’s previous January 2024 request.

Per CNN, his representative rejects Smith’s date, saying he “seeks a faster trial than most undocumented offenses and only four months from discovery to jury selection.” He added: “The goal of the administration is clear: to deny President Trump and his attorneys a fair opportunity to prepare for the trial.” The court should deny the government’s request.”

In the media’s coverage of the wild move, Breaking News reporter Devan Cole points out, “Among other things, Trump’s team argued that Smith’s proposed timeline for the trial would be at odds with the other criminal and civil cases in which the former president is a defendant .” including the classified documents case brought by Smith, the New York hush money case and the Georgia voter subversion case.” US District Judge Tanya Chutkan is expected to make her decision on the final date by the end of the month.
