Trump lawyers indicate two trials will cause scheduling conflicts

Former President Donald Trump has multiple trials coming up as he continues to face legal hurdles before the November election. 

The case initiated against Trump by Manhattan DA Alvin Bragg over alleged "hush money" payments to Stormy Daniels is set to go to trial on April 15, according to the judge overseeing the case.

However, Trump's lawyers recently signaled to U.S. District Judge Aileen Cannon, the judge overseeing his classified documents case, that the New York trial date will interfere with the trial coming up in the classified documents case.

Trump and his lawyers, in the filing, called it a "scheduling conflict" in their attempts to delay the trial as far out as possible.

What's going on?

Cannon has yet to set a trial date for the classified documents probe but recently came under fire for issuing what some legal experts called a "bizarre" set of instructions for a jury that doesn't yet exist.

The Associate Press explained the latest complications with Trump's trial overseen by Cannon.

The outlet noted Cannon "has yet to set a firm trial date despite holding two hours-long hearings with lawyers this month. Multiple motions to dismiss the case are still pending, disputes over classified evidence have spanned months and a bitterly contested defense request to disclose the names of government witnesses remains unresolved."

Trump's lawyers notified Cannon and the court of the potential conflict with the New York trial.

On March 25, 2024, the judge presiding over People v. Trump scheduled jury selection to commence on April 15, 2024. While the exact end date of any trial cannot be known with certainty, because of jury selection, religious observances, and the anticipated schedule of the trial, we anticipate President Trump will be on trial in People v. Trump from April 15, 2024, through the end of May 2024.

His lawyers said the upcoming trial date is "no longer workable" because of the potential conflict with the New York trial.

"Our initial proposed schedule anticipated a March 25 trial date in People v. Trump, and therefore the dates that we proposed to the Court, particularly in late May and early June 2024, are no longer workable for President Trump in light of the adjourned trial date," his lawyers wrote.

Social media reacts

While Trump's wins -- with trial delays -- are celebrated by his supporters, his critics are triggered every time a trial is pushed back.

"Oy. Doesn’t Smith have enough at this point to ask for her recusal?," one X user wrote.

Only time will tell if Trump's lawyers are granted yet another delay. The more the merrier.
