Judge May Delay Trump’s March 4 Trial Date, Restricts Prosecution’s Motions Prior To Immunity Argument


Judge Tanya Chutkan has suggested that the trial date for Special Counsel Jack Smith in Trump’s January 6 case in DC will likely be postponed.

In an order spanning six pages, Judge Chutkan, who Obama appointed, has prohibited Jack Smith from filing any further motions while awaiting a decision from the DC Circuit Court of Appeals regarding Trump’s immunity argument.

Additionally, she has denied Trump’s request to hold Jack Smith and his prosecutors in contempt for disregarding her order to halt all legal proceedings.

Trump’s legal team contends that he is immune from federal prosecution for alleged offenses committed during his tenure as US President.

Last month, Judge Tanya Chutkan temporarily halted the January 6 case involving Trump due to a dispute over his immunity claim.

Previously, President Trump’s lawyers had urged Judge Chutkan to hold Special Counsel Jack Smith in contempt for violating her order to stay all proceedings related to the case.

“The prosecutors’ filings and productions, Docs 188, 191, attempt to achieve both of those unlawful goals,” Trump’s lawyers wrote in a motion accusing Jack Smith of “knowingly, repeatedly and blatantly violating this Court’s Stay Order.”

“Could a president who ordered SEAL Team 6 to assassinate a political rival, and is not impeached, would he be subject to criminal prosecution?” Judge Florence Pan, a Biden appointee asked John Sauer.

John Sauer, former Solicitor General of Missouri replied, “If he were impeached and convicted first… my answer is qualified yes, there is a political process that would have to occur under the structure of our Constitution which would require impeachment and conviction by the Senate in these exceptional cases…”

If the appeals court rules in favor of Jack Smith’s team, President Trump plans to appeal to the US Supreme Court, which could potentially result in a delay or cancellation of the March 4 trial date.
