(TheRedWire.com) – Judge Aileen Cannon, who is tasked with overseeing the classified documents case against former President Donald Trump could inadvertently end up deciding when the start of the 2020 election obstruction trial was going to start.

Glenn Kirschner, a former federal prosecutor who frequently criticizes Trump stated while talking about a scheduling conference that Cannon will head on March 1, that the judge could delay the start of the trial. Trump is facing 40 federal charges relating to his mishandling of classified documents and has pleaded not guilty to all of them. Currently, the trial is set to start on May 20. 

Cannon, who is a Trump nominee, has been criticized heavily for rulings that many have claimed are favorable to former President Donald Trump, including the ones that could end up delaying the classified documents case trial from starting. 

Trump is widely expected to be the GOP nominee in 2024 and his legal team has been accused of doing everything in their power to have the trial against Trump delayed until after the election in November. If Trump successfully wins back the White House then he could call for the Department of Justice to completely drop all of the charges against him as soon as he enters the Oval Office. 

Kirschner while speaking to MSNBC claimed that if Cannon was going to delay the classified documents trial, then it is possible that the federal case against Trump regarding his attempts to overturn the 2020 presidential election results might also be delayed.
