Donald Trump’s election fraud trial will not start in October. According to Reuters, A judge involved in the case said in a decision on Thursday that the former US President will be allowed to be prosecuted after his two former lawyers. This case is going on against Trump on charges of trying to overturn the election defeat of Washington 2020.
Fulton County Superior Court Judge Scott McAfee cited legal issues in separating the trial of Trump’s former lawyers Kenneth Chesebro and Sidney Powell from that of Donald Trump and 16 other co-accused. The trial date for Trump, who is the front-runner in the Republican Party for the presidential race in 2024, has not yet been decided. The judge indicated that more changes could come in the case.
McAfee had earlier expressed doubt that all 19 accused could be tried together. Trump was charged in an indictment in August that he and his co-defendants conspired to pressure Georgia election officials to overturn his loss to Democratic President Joe Biden. Trump and other accused in the case have declared themselves innocent. Powell and Chesebro are accused of helping efforts to overturn Trump’s election defeat. Both of them had earlier demanded a speedy hearing, which is scheduled to start from October 23.
