U.S. District Court Judge Tanya Chutkan has delayed President Donald Trump’s March 4 trial for allegedly interfering with the 2020 election as the courts consider his claim of presidential immunity.

Chutkan said she would reschedule when the courts settle the immunity case.
A reschedule depends on Chutkan’s scheduled. She acknowledged she doesn’t know what her “schedule will be in mid-April.”
Special Prosecutor Jack Smith has been doing all he can to get the trial started on March 4th.
Smith even asked the Supreme Court to bypass the lower courts and rule on presidential immunity.
Thank goodness SCOTUS said no way. In other words, you have to follow the same process as everyone else.
Trump asked Chutkan to hold Smith in contempt, claiming he has been violating the stay order Chutkan put in place in December by continuing to work on the case.
Smith has filed numerous discoveries and asked Chutkan to exclude Trump’s January 6 evidence.
