In a Florida court on February 29, lawyers for Donald Trump said to a judge that he thinks he won’t get a fair trial this year for mishandling secret papers after leaving the White House. This comes as he’s busy campaigning to become president again.

Jack Smith, the U.S. Special Counsel handling the case against Trump, requested the trial to begin on July 8. Trump’s legal team, in their document, insisted that he firmly believes a fair trial can’t happen this year in a way that follows the Constitution.

After saying that thing on the first page of the document, they later talked about beginning the trial on August 12, 2024, on the seventh page. No one from Trump’s team has replied to a question about the difference. These papers were submitted before a court meeting on Friday. In that meeting, Judge Aileen Cannon will discuss when to start the trial. Trump has four legal cases against him, and he’s the top pick for the Republican presidential nomination.

Cannon delayed a few trial deadlines before, but she mentioned waiting until Friday to decide about changing the May 20 trial date.

Trump said he’s not guilty of 40 federal charges accusing him of keeping important national security papers at his Florida resort after leaving office in 2021. He’s also accused of blocking the U.S. government from getting them back.

Trump, along with his personal assistant Walt Nauta and Mar-a-Lago resort property manager Carlos de Oliveira, pleaded not guilty to the charges.

Trump keeps trying to postpone his four criminal cases, claiming they’re all part of a plan to harm his election campaign.

Trump is set to go to trial in a New York state court on March 25 for charges of faking records to pay off a porn star before the 2016 election.

We’re not sure when the other three cases will go to trial, and it’s unclear if any will happen before the November election.
