Judge Aileen Cannon confirms that Trump's classified documents trial will not begin soon

U.S. District Judge Aileen Cannon ended the latest hearing in former President Donald Trump's classified documents case without setting a schedule and by all accounts it appears the trial will not happen anytime soon.

Special Counsel Jack Smith's team argued for a July start while Trump's team proposed either August or after the 2024 presidential election. Judge Cannon seems to be leaning towards Trump's side as she told lawyers that "a lot of work remains to be done."

This is a disaster for Smith's team and the Democrat Party who have been betting on Smith to get a criminal conviction of Trump before the election in November.

Now it appears that Smith will likely have to wait until after the election to have his trial, and that is assuming his investigation isn't dismantled.

Should Trump win in November, he will use his presidential authority to disband the investigation and put an end to this insane saga once and for all.

Trial won't happen before November

The mission for Smith and other leftist prosecutors was to convict Trump in order to aid President Joe Biden's reelection campaign.

That mission seems to have failed with the decision, or rather the lack of one, from Judge Cannon. Trump's team has been fighting to delay the trial for the past year and that hard work has paid off.

Not only is there work to be done on the case itself, Judge Cannon will also likely be waiting on the Supreme Court's decision on Trump's immunity claim.

SCOTUS announced on Wednesday that it would hear Trump's case which carries massive implications for Smith's case.

Should the Supreme Court agree with Trump's immunity claims, it would completely negate Smith's case. So it only makes sense for Cannon to indefinitely delay the trial pending a decision which seems to be the current plan.

Democrats tripping over each other

Another factor that is likely to push the trial until after the election is, ironically, the other cases that Trump and his lawyers are battling.

Trump's New York trial on charges he falsified business records begins March 25th and his team argues that this trial shouldn't start before that one is concluded. Smith's proposed time-line would also run afoul of the Republican National Convention in July.

Democrats have thrown several indictments at Trump at the same time and now that's come back to bite them. Trump has been dominating Joe Biden on the campaign trail and now he's crushing Democrats in the courts.
