Trump critics, including media, triggered by potential trial delays

It's been nine months since Special Counsel Jack Smith indicted former President Donald Trump in the classified documents case. 

However, Trump and his lawyers have scored a number of legal victories in recent weeks with many of those victories coming in the form of trial delays -- or at least potential trial delays.

Those delays are extremely triggering for Trump's critics who are essentially salivating to see the former president go to trial and end up with a conviction before the 2024 election.

Recent developments in his classified documents case seem to signal that the trial will almost have to be pushed out until after the November election.

Media outlet meltdown

Several media outlets, including the Associated Press, have expressed concerns over Trump's potential trial date delays.

A recent AP report on the classified documents case called the case "relatively straightforward," even though it most certainly was not straightforward by any legal stretch.

The outlet wrote:

The case against Donald Trump seemed relatively straightforward in August 2022 when FBI agents searched his Mar-a-Lago estate, with authorities citing evidence that the former president hoarded enough classified documents to fill dozens of boxes and obstructed the government’s efforts to retrieve them.

It went on to highlight the judge overseeing the case, Judge Aileen Cannon, a "Trump-appointed" judge, is going about the trial in an unconventional manner. Many of Trump's critics on social media have claimed, without evidence other than who appointed her, that Cannon is purposely helping Trump.

Several legal experts, like David Aaron, a former Justice Department national security prosecutor, expressed concern over how the trial is developing.

"This does seem to be moving more slowly and less sequentially than other cases that I have seen," Aaron said.

What's the problem?

The AP's report goes on to admit that to a "certain extent," Trump's trial delays are favorable to his presidential campaign.

To a certain extent, the delays are the product of a broader Trump team strategy to postpone the four criminal cases confronting the presumptive Republican nominee in this year’s presidential race.

Of course, that's the strategy for Trump and his lawyers. Why would they not use the legal system to work through the political lawfare being waged against him in the lead-up to the November election?

Hilariously, they see absolutely nothing wrong with Special Counsel Smith and his prosecutors wanting an expedited, super-fast trial and decision before the election.

Hopefully, Trump and his lawyers delay as many trials as they can for as long as they possibly can so that he has a fair shot at running an election without political interference from the other side.
