Georgia DA Fani Willis requests Aug. 5 trial date for Trump's case

Former President Donald Trump faces a number of upcoming trials related to the various indictment against him. 

According to the Washington Examiner, if Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis gets her way, the trial regarding the Georgia 2020 election interference case will begin just three months before Election Day 2024.

Willis, who has been accused of indicting Trump in an attempt to derail his 2024 presidential campaign, asked a judge last week to schedule the trial for Aug. 5.

Should the judge in the case grant her request, that would knock Trump off the campaign trial at the most critical point of his 2024 election campaign.

Her reasoning for the requested date, so she says, is because it "balances potential delays from other pending criminal trials with the Defendants’ speedy trial rights."

Trump is already expected to be tied up in legal battles throughout the majority of 2024, but one so close to the election sparked immediate backlash from the former president and many of his supporters.

"Radical Democrat Fani Willis has again proven that her case is purely political, designed to interfere with President Trump’s re-election by demanding a trial date in the most vital time in President Trump’s winning campaign," Trump spokesman Steven Cheung said.

He added, "Crooked Joe Biden knows he can’t beat President Trump and this corrupt step by Fani Willis is just further proof of that fact."

Social media users reacted to the news, with many accusing Willis of election interference.

"It IS the most significant election interference in modern American history," one X user wrote.

Another X user wrote, "What has our country become when our media and government is complacent and participating in this type of political attack?"

Only time will tell if the judge grants Willis' request for the trial date, which would undoubtedly be a massive wrench in the former president's campaign gears.
