( – Former President Donald Trump’s lawyers are attempting to push back the trial in his classified documents case until “at least mid-November 2024.” If the trial is delayed until that time, it will be tried after the presidential election. Trump is currently leading the 2024 Republican presidential race.

Trump’s legal team has previously complained about the timeframe in which they are required to review the classified evidence, arguing that they need more time considering their workload and the several indictments filed against Trump in the last year. They further argued that they have not yet been given access to the classified evidence relating to the charges in the superseding indictment, which includes an additional charge under the Espionage Act against Trump.

The former president’s legal team has also complained that they are only being allowed to view the documents in a “small, temporary facility in Miami,” which means that they need to appear in the facility in person while also handling the hearing dates in Trump’s trial relating to the charges against him over his attempts to overturn the results of the 2020 presidential election and block the transfer of power.

Todd Blanche and Christopher Kise, Trump’s attorneys, have noted that the trial in the District of Columbia schedule would require both their client and themselves to be in two places at once.

Trump’s trial in the Mar-a-Lago case is set for May. However, his legal team has been fighting with special counsel Jack Smith’s team over the filing motion deadlines relating to the classified evidence in the case.
