Trump Lawyers Request 2026 Trial Date

Donald Trump and his lawyers have just told America when they want the former president's Jan. 6 case to take place.


That's over two years further down the road than Jack Smith wants it to be.

Federal prosecutors initially chose Jan. 2, 2024 as the day that Trump's trial would begin. To say that Trump's team is pushing back against that proposal would be a massive understatement.

Trump's lawyers argued that starting such a major trial so soon was essentially stripping their client of his right to give himself the best chance possible to defeat the charges.

Citing a 1932 Supreme Court case, Trump's team argued that a "prompt disposition of criminal cases is to be commended and encouraged" but that in this case their client was being "stripped of his right" to meet with and properly prepare for the trial with his legal counsel. They added:

To do that is not to proceed promptly in the calm spirit of regulated justice but to go forward with the haste of the mob.

It's sad, but that's pretty much what the once-proud Democratic Party has become these days.

A mob.

Trump's team called this case unprecedented.

It is, honestly. No former president has EVER been indicted like this in American history.

As a result, Trump's team has a TON of work to do. They claim that they are going to have to comb through evidence "totaling over 11.5 million pages."

According to Trump's team, that's the equivalent of trying to read War and Peace front to back 78 times per day, every day, "from now until jury selection."

Trump's team argued that the prosecution is not seeking a "reasonable" trial schedule, saying:

Instead, it seeks a trial calendar more rapid than most no-document misdemeanors, requesting just four months from the beginning of discovery to jury selection. The government’s objective is clear: to deny President Trump and his counsel a fair ability to prepare for trial.
