New York Judge Sets Trump’s ‘Hush Money’ Trial to Start on April 15

New York Judge Juan M. Merchan announced that former President Donald Trump’s hush money trial will start on April 15. It had been delayed due to the defense receiving thousands of documents containing new evidence.

But Merchan also gave Trump’s team a chance “to file a motion seeking to delay the trial based on pre-trial publicity concerns.”

Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg has one week to respond.

“This was a case that could have been brought three-and-a-half years ago and they decided to wait now, just during the election, so that I won’t be able to campaign,” Trump said after the ruling.

A Manhattan grand jury indicted Trump on 34 counts of falsifying business records.

DA Alvin Bragg inherited the case when he came into office in 2022 but suspended it. Then, he brought it back when Trump announced his 2024 presidential campaign.

It sure sounds like Trump might have a point about it being political.

Supposedly, Trump paid Stormy Daniels $130,000 to keep quiet about an alleged affair. His former lawyer, Michael Cohen, said he set it up and paid it out of his pocket, and the Trump Organization paid him back as “legal expenses.”
