Trump Election Interference Case Removed from Calendar

The January 6 case against Donald Trump has been dropped from the court’s public calendar.

The case, brought by special counsel Jack Smith, has been postponed indefinitely.

According to The Washington Post, the “March 4 trial date on charges of plotting to overturn the results of the 2020 election has been dropped from the public calendar of the federal court in Washington, a sign of what has long been anticipated — that his claim of presidential immunity from criminal prosecution would delay his trial while it remains on appeal.”

It is unknown when the case was removed, although it is believed to have occurred within the last week.

Trump is arguing in an appeal to the case that he is protected by presidential immunity.

American Faith reported in December that Smith asked the Supreme Court to take action on the case to prevent delays that could push the trial after the 2024 presidential election.

The Supreme Court declined to rule quickly, writing, “The petition for a writ of certiorari before judgment is denied.”

Journalist Simon Ateba shared the news on X, stating, “The alleged election interference case against @realDonaldTrump in Washington, DC, has been postponed indefinitely and removed from the court calendar. Originally scheduled for March 4, a day before Super Tuesday, the trial’s start date is uncertain until an appeal court ruling is issued.”

“It’s therefore getting a bit late to stop Trump before the presidential election in November!!!! I don’t know what the next plan is with this new development,” he added.
