The Move of Aileen Cannon Might Backfire on Donald Trump

Republican presidential candidate former President Donald Trump speaks to supporters during a rally on February 17, 2024 in Waterford, Michigan, The judge overseeing Trump's classified documents case could soon decide to delay start of the trial.

A legal expert claims that the judge presiding over the trial of classified documents for Donald Trump could unwittingly influence the commencement of the former president’s obstruction trial in the 2020 presidential election.
Former federal prosecutor and frequent Trump critic Glenn Kirschner made the aforementioned assertion while deliberating on a scheduling conference that will be presided over by Judge Aileen Cannon on March 1. Cannon may opt to defer the commencement of the trial for the former president, who has entered a not-guilty plea to forty federal charges, from its current date of May 20.
Cannon, an individual nominated to the bench by Trump, has often encountered censure regarding her alleged bias toward the former president in her judgments, including those that may have caused a postponement of the commencement of the classified documents jury proceedings.

Donald Trump, the anticipated Republican presidential nominee in 2024, and his legal team have also been accused of making every effort to postpone the commencement of the federal trial until after the November election, with the expectation that if he wins the election, he will be able to request that the Department of Justice dismiss the case upon assuming office.
Kirschner suggested in an interview with MSNBC that if Cannon chooses to postpone the trial of the classified documents from May 20, then the presiding judge in the federal case accusing Trump of unlawfully attempting to tamper with the 2020 election results could instead set that date for the trial of those documents.
An email was sent to Trump’s legal staff by Newsweek requesting comment.
The federal election trial in which Trump has entered a not-guilty plea to four charges was postponed by Judge Tanya Chutkan. The ex-president contends that the case ought to be dismissed on the grounds that the allegations pertain to his tenure in office and thus exempt him from prosecution.
Trump appealed to the Supreme Court, which could render a decision on Wednesday regarding the immunity argument. A determination from the nation’s highest court is possible.
In the event that the Supreme Court decides to hear the case, the prosecution could be delayed by several months. Additionally, SCOTUS may determine that the prior judgment of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit, which denied Trump’s immunity claim, ought to be upheld. In such a scenario, Chutkan would be ordered to return the case to the court so that pre-trial proceedings could proceed.
“We know Donald Trump and his team of lawyers will try to convince Judge Canon to kick the May 20 trial date—and you may not expect to hear this from me—but I almost hope that she does kick the May 20 trial date,” Kirschner stated.
“Why? Because in the event that the Supreme Court rejects the stay and the absolute immunity concern, thereby remanding the election interference case to Tanya Chutkan, I would greatly appreciate it if she would remove that case from the docket for May 20 if Judge Cannon cancels that date in Florida.
The immunity appeal procedure has already caused Chutkan to postpone the commencement of the election interference trial from its originally planned date of March 4.
Chutkan previously stated that the postponement of the case would not be factored into the seven-month period between the unsealed indictment in August and the commencement of the trial, a time frame she offered to prepare the former president’s legal team.
A postponement was granted in the matter by Chutkan in December 2023. The case could potentially proceed to trial in May if the Supreme Court declines to hear Trump’s immunity appeal this week and the case recommences. Failing that, the seven-month deadline will pass.
Peter Shane, a New York University constitutional law professor, previously told Newsweek that he would be “astonished” if the Supreme Court granted Trump’s immunity petition, stating that the case is “extremely weak.”
“Whether presidents may be charged with crimes while in office is a difficult question; whether former presidents may be charged is not,” according to Shane.
