This is exactly what Trump wanted…

On Tuesday evening, Florida Judge Aileen Cannon indefinitely postponed former President Trump’s Mar-a-Lago documents case.

The Tuesday order was issued less than two weeks before Trump’s trial was still on the books to kick off on May 20.

The Hill has more:

Cannon pinned the delay on the need to resolve numerous issues dealing with how classified information will be handled at trial, details governed by the Classified Information Procedures Act (CIPA). 

“The Court also determines that finalization of a trial date at this juncture — before resolution of the myriad and interconnected pre-trial and CIPA issues remaining and forthcoming — would be imprudent and inconsistent with the Court’s duty to fully and fairly consider the various pending pre-trial motions before the Court,” Cannon wrote. 

In laying out the new schedule, Cannon noted that she still has “eight substantive pretrial motions” she must rule on.
