Former President Donald Trump's D.C. election interference trial is reportedly no longer scheduled to start on March 4 in the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia.

The former president faces four felony charges in the case, one of which is conspiracy to defraud the U.S. He pleaded not guilty in August of 2023.

The trial was supposed to take place one day before Super Tuesday – the day on which a greatest number of states hold their primaries and caucuses.

Super Tuesday is the date when the most states in a presidential election year holding either a primary or caucus.

Among them this year are Alabama, Arkansas, Alaska, California, Colorado, Iowa, Maine, Massachusetts, Minnesota, North Carolina, Oklahoma, Tennessee, Texas, Utah, Vermont and Virginia.

The Trump court date no longer being on the calendar was first reported by The Washington Post. 

Why the change was made was unclear as of Friday morning, according to Spectrum News.

However, the judge overseeing the case, U.S. District Judge Tanya Chutkan, said last year it would be put on hold temporarily while she waits for a higher court ruling on Trump's statements that his presidency granted him immunity from criminal prosecutions.

Trump faces other lawsuits in Georgia, Florida and New York.
