Judge sets Donald Trump trial date in classified documents probe
Former President Donald Trump will go on trial for 37 federal felony counts on May 20, 2024, a federal judge said Friday.
U.S. District Judge Aileen Cannon announced the finalized trial date after the Republican presidential candidate's legal team asked the court to delay the proceedings until after the 2024 election. Prosecutors had asked for a trial as soon as December.
Trump is accused of 37 counts, including willful retention of national defense information, conspiracy to obstruct justice and making false statements. He has pleaded not guilty to the charges.
