“There are overwhelming reasons why the case should not go to trial ‘in three months or less” Trump Seeks Supreme Court Intervention Again to Delay Immunity Case

In a recent development, former President Donald Trump has made another appeal to the U.S. Supreme Court, seeking to delay his immunity case. This move came shortly after special counsel Jack Smith recommended that the Supreme Court not postpone the proceedings. CNN reported on this latest effort by Trump to put the trial on hold.

Kyle Cheney of Politico provided insights into Trump’s appeal by sharing a “17-page reply to SCOTUS” on X (previously known as Twitter). In this document, Trump’s legal team argues that Smith’s stance seems to be biased, hinting at partisanship. They contend that proceeding with the trial in less than three months, as suggested, would be highly unusual and exceptionally unfair for any defendant, not just for Trump.

The MAGA hopeful’s attorneys wrote, “There are overwhelming reasons why the case should not go to trial ‘in three months or less.’ With any other defendant, it would be virtually unthinkable for the case to go to trial so soon, and ‘wildly unfair’ to do so.”

In a filing dated Wednesday, February 14, Smith articulated the urgency of the matter, stating, “Delay in the resolution of these charges threatens to undermine the public’s interest in a prompt and just verdict.” He further highlighted the case’s significance, pointing out that it involves federal criminal charges against a former president related to alleged attempts to subvert the presidential election results, including actions taken while in office.

Trump’s latest plea for a delay follows a request he made to the Supreme Court on Monday. In that request, he sought to overturn a decision by the DC Circuit Court, which had dismissed his claims of being immune from prosecution concerning allegations of election interference. This ongoing legal battle underscores the tension between Trump’s defense, which seeks to leverage claims of immunity and procedural delays, and the prosecution’s push for a timely trial, emphasizing the case’s importance to the nation’s interest in upholding the integrity of its democratic processes and legal system.
