Former President Donald Trump is tentatively scheduled to go to trial Aug. 14 on federal charges of obstruction and mishandling classified documents, according to a scheduling order Tuesday from U.S. District Judge Aileen Cannon.

All hearings will occur in Fort Pierce, Fla., rather than Miami, where his arraignment on 37 federal counts took place last week. Trump pleaded not guilty to all charges.

Cannon, a Trump appointee, said the trial could be delayed on the grounds of several factors, "the complexity of the case, ... the security clearance process, and any anticipated impact of the Classified Information Procedures Act," the latter of which deals with the process that classified materials are used at trial.
