Tuesday morning it was announced that 45th President Donald Trump’s trial is set to begin on August 14th, 2023, leading many to believe that the Biden DOJ is attempting to jail their political opponent ahead of the 2024 election. Trump’s legal team says they will attempt to push back the trial date.
United States court documents released on Tuesday state that President Trump’s case must start on August 14th, 2023, or soon after. The document reads, “This case is hereby set for a Criminal Jury Trial during the two-week period commencing August 14, 2023, or as soon thereafter as the case may be called. A Calendar Call will be held at 1:45 p.m. on August 8, 2023. All hearings will be held at Alto Lee Adams, Sr. United States Courthouse, 101 South U.S. Highway 1, Courtroom 4008, Fort Pierce, Florida 34950.”
Documents also show that all pretrial motions must be submitted to the court by July 24th, 2023. Trump’s legal team is expected to submit a request asking for a delay in the trial start date before July 24th, 2023.
During his remarks following Trump’s indictment, Jack Smith said he wants Trump’s trial to start as soon as possible.
As polling shows Donald Trump beating Joe Biden in the 2024 election, many took Smith’s announcement as Biden’s DOJ attempt to lock up Joe Biden’s political opponent before voters go to the polls.
National File previously reported that Federal Magistrate Judge Bruce Reinhart granted Joe Biden’s DOJ request to place a gag order on President Trump. Trump can no longer post about his case on social media without the court’s permission.
The case against President Trump coincides with Hunter Biden taking a sweetheart deal with DOJ prosecutors to avoid a felony conviction on a federal gun charge and to avoid jail time on charges of willfully not paying his taxes.
