Former Trump attorneys Sidney Powell and Kenneth Chesebro will go to trial Oct. 23, 2023, in Fulton County, Georgia, without the other 17 co-defendants in the 2020 election case, Judge Scott McAfee ruled Thursday.

McAfee's decision comes after the other 17 co-defendants, including former President Donald Trump, did not request a speedy trial.

All co-defendants in the case have pleaded not guilty to charges related to alleged efforts to overturn the 2020 election results in favor of Trump.
