Judge Aileen Cannon has set a date for the highly anticipated classified documents trial for former President Donald Trump.
Judge Cannon has set a May 2024 date for the trial into Trump’s alleged mishandling of classified documents taken from the White House.
Despite Judge Cannon’s decision to deny Trump’s legal team’s request to indefinitely delay the matter, she disagreed with Special Counsel Jack Smith’s requested trial date of December this year.
“By conservative estimates, the amount of discovery in this case is voluminous and likely to increase in the normal course as trial approaches. And, while the Government has taken steps to organize and filter the extensive discovery, no one disagrees that Defendants need adequate time to review and evaluate it on their own accord,” Cannon wrote.
