Smith Tries to Block Trump Delay Request for Trial

We are starting to see the weapons that the Trump legal team had planned to extend these cases past the election.

The latest shot fired is to try to delay the election case against Trump until after the court rules on Trump’s presidential immunity.

The case is currently slated to start on March 4, which is right in the heart of the primary election schedule.

Keep It Rolling

If this trial starts on March 4, Trump will wind up being in the courtroom during some of the biggest campaign days of the election, including Super Tuesday.

Jack Smith is now asking the Supreme Court to expedite the case to ensure the trial goes on as expected.

In response to Trump asking for a delay, Smith argued, “The Court should deny the defendant’s request for an order staying 'all district court proceedings.'”

Trump’s team has argued, “The filing of President Trump’s notice of appeal has deprived this Court of jurisdiction over this case in its entirety pending resolution of the appeal.”

Smith's team responded as well as arguing that all of these filings by Trump’s team were an attempt to create confusion about the case.

They argued, "To create the false impression that there might actually be support for his lies about voting machines, the defendant, without context, threads his filing with discussion of irrelevant network breaches around the time of the 2020 election.

“In doing so, the defendant attempts to manufacture confusion by willfully ignoring the distinction between voting machines (charged in the indictment) and registration websites (not charged in the indictment)."

Smith’s team has also tried to cut off the narrative that votes were flipped in the election to hurt Trump

Smith’s team has interviewed relative witnesses, asking them all “if they were aware of any evidence that a domestic or foreign actor flipped a single vote in a voting machine during the presidential election.”

The team stated that in every case, the answer was “no.”

Trump’s team has maintained that they will prove how the election was stolen during the court case, but we should note that to this point, Trump has lost every case in regard to election fraud that has been filed to this point.

I am not sure what “new” evidence they have that will be able to convince court members that the election was rigged against Trump.

I have stated from day one that while I believe Trump will lose the majority, if not all of these cases in the lower courts, he stands a very good chance of winning most of them on appeal.

However, the cases brought against him by Special Counsel Jack Smith are a bit of a different matter because of the way Smith crafted the charges, ensuring himself that if gets an initial guilty verdict, he stands a very good chance of having at least one charge stick on appeal.
