( – Former President Donald Trump’s attorneys are pushing for the trial in the Mar-a-Lago documents federal case to be pushed back without providing a new start date. In brief, they note that the request made by the federal government to have the trial start within six months of the indictment was not possible, considering the large amounts of material. They added that the only thing that such a quick trial would ensure is that justice would not be carried out correctly.

They further pointed out that the government tends to pursue faster and “cursory” approaches regarding this particular case. The trial was initially set to start in August, according to Judge Aileen Cannon, while the Department of Justice had pushed for the trial date to be selected as Dec. 11.

Trump’s lawyers are not requesting that the trial starts on a specific date; however, they have argued that Trump will be busy with his presidential campaign efforts, which means that prosecution will damage his efforts to run for office successfully.

The filing on Monday shows precisely how Trump’s legal team intends to delay the trial day, pointing to the many complex legal issues which could result in the indictment being dismissed entirely. In the filing, they also point out that the Court will need to handle a case brought forth by the administration of a sitting President against his primary political opponent in the upcoming presidential elections.

As they argue, this should be considered when considering the timeline for this case and the procedures required for this indictment.
