Former President Donald Trump‘s federal trial date is set to begin on March 4, 2024 – one day before Super Tuesday.
U.S. Judge Tanya S. Chutkan made the ruling on Monday, sparking immediate criticism from Trump supporters and freedom-loving Americans that the justice system is not blind when it comes to the former president.
Chutkan claimed the six-month timeframe was “far beyond what is necessary” to prepare while Trump’s attorney John Lauro vehemently disagreed.
BREAKING: U.S. District Judge Tanya Chutkan has set a trial date for President Trump’s J6 related indictment for March 4, 2024.
This is also the date of the North Dakota caucus. AL, AK, AR, CA, CO, and other primaries are on March 5.

“The trial date raises the likelihood that Trump will spend nearly all of the presidential primary season in a criminal courtroom,” Politico reported. “In addition to the trial in Washington, he’s slated to face jurors in New York on March 25 on charges stemming from hush money payments to a porn star, and he’s scheduled to stand trial in Florida on May 20 on charges that he hoarded classified information at his Mar-a-Lago estate.”
Meanwhile, Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis has not announced a trial date for the election case in Georgia.
I’m sure it’s completely coincidental that the corrupt federal judge in the Trump Federal Election Trial with Jack Smith set the court date for March 4, 2024..
March 5, 2024 is Super Tuesday for Primaries…
Totally just a coincidence.. Not political at all..

Prosecutors have reportedly handed 12.8 million pages or files to Trump’s legal team in preparation for trial and believe that it was “substantially complete.”
“This is an enormous, overwhelming task,” Laura shot back.
According to Politico, Trump’s attorney “at times grew heated in his response, said there was no way he could be ready for trial without years to prepare. He noted that there are more than 250 government witnesses he has to research, as well as additional witnesses he may decide to call. He said he’s also in the process of drafting a long series of motions seeking to shrink the case against Trump or get it dismissed altogether.”
“This man’s liberty and life is at stake,” Lauro said, accusing Biden’s Justice Department of putting on a “show trial” against a political opponent.
“He’s no different than any American,” he said of Trump.
“J6 defendants have been rotting away in solitary awaiting trial for YEARS, but somehow Trump’s documents trial—which involves something like 60 million documents—magically gets scheduled for mid-2024? Mmmk,” tweeted the Federalist’s Sean Davis.
Chutkan, meanwhile, said she would be treating the former president just like anyone else in her courtroom and would not give any special consideration to the election schedule.
“Setting a trial date does not depend and should not depend on the defendant’s personal and professional obligations,” Chutkan said. “Mr. Trump, like any defendant, will have to make the trial date work regardless of his schedule.”
Needless to say, the furious and frustrated reaction from Trump supporters and liberty-minded people was palpable:
The crooked judge overseeing the Trump J6 case made other J6 defendants sit for years in the DC gulag before she set trial dates for them. Now she wants to rush the Trump trial and start it the DAY before Super Tuesday.

Is anyone surprised that the Judge set Trumps trial date for the day before Super Tuesday? This is the same Judge who over-sentenced J6 people and worked at the same firm as Hunter Biden.
DC is a corrupt cesspool

Honest observers should ask themselves why two separate courts each attempted to set a March 4th trial date for Trump https://t.co/EI0P7SJc5l

Judge Chutkan is a political operative in a robe.
We should set her censure for a vote ASAP to expose this sham and restore our republic. https://t.co/mwdUljM8UQ
