Donald Trump’s criminal hush money trial is delayed by just 20 days: report

Donald Trump sought dismissal of the criminal hush money case brought against him, but instead he got only a delay of trial for 20 days.

The delay stems from a stash of documents recently revealed in the case. They are expected to be related to a case involving Trump’s former attorney and fixer Michael Cohen, a key witness for the prosecution,

The prosecution in the case affirmed it would accept a 30-day delay due to the additional records, and Trump requested the Trump be tossed entirely or delayed for 90 days instead of the offered 30.

But the judge had another idea in mind.

Instead of granting Trump’s request, or giving a 30-day delay from the March 25 trial date, the judge ordered a delay of 30 days from the date of the letter, which is marked as March 15. That’s 10 days before the scheduled trial in that case.

“Breaking: Donald Trump’s hush money trial is DELAYED by 30 days, Justice Juan Merchan rules,” Frank G. Runyeon of Law360 reported Friday. He then added a correction to that:

“Clarification: judge delays trial proceedings for 30 days from today. Another words, we’re looking at ~April 15 it seems.”
