Former Attorney General Bill Barr argues Trump's trials will not interfere with 2024 election
Earlier this week, U.S. District Judge Tanya Chutkan set Trump's trial date in Washington D.C. for March 4, which is one day before Super Tuesday.
Former U.S. Attorney General Bill Barr denied statements from former President Donald Trump that his upcoming trials will interfere with his 2024 presidential campaign.
“The basic principle in the criminal justice system is if a prominent person commits a crime and they’re seeking office, that doesn’t give them immunity,” Barr said on Fox News. “If there’s enough time to have it resolved before the election, it should be resolved.”
Earlier this week, U.S. District Judge Tanya Chutkan set Trump's trial date in Washington D.C. for March 4, 2024, which is one day before Super Tuesday.
Trump’s legal team requested for the trial date to be April 2026.
The former president's Georgia case is also expected to take place during campaign season, according to The Hill.
Trump's trial for the alleged mishandling of classified documents is scheduled in Florida for May 20 – one day before Kentucky and Oregon have primary elections.
Trump has said earlier this month that these lawsuits are election interference.
"CRAZY! My political opponent has hit me with a barrage of weak lawsuits, including D.A., A.G., and others, which require massive amounts of my time & money to adjudicate," Trump posted on TRUTH Social.
