Trump’s Federal Criminal Trial for Election Interference Set for March 2024

HeadlineAug 29, 2023

A federal judge in Washington, D.C., has set March 4, 2024, as the first day of former President Trump’s criminal trial for plotting to overturn the 2020 election. Trump’s lawyers had argued the trial should be delayed until April 2026; instead, it is set to begin one day before Super Tuesday presidential primaries. Meanwhile, Trump’s former White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows testified before a federal judge in Georgia Monday as part of an effort to move his trial from state court to federal court. Meadows is one of Trump’s 18 co-defendants in the Georgia case. Arraignments for that case are scheduled for September 6. We’ll have more on the criminal legal cases against Trump and his allies after headlines.
