Judge Tanya Chutkan has set a trial date in President Donald Trump’s federal Jan. 6 case for March 4, 2024, multiple outlets have reported.
The timing of the trial is significant because it is set to take place just one day before the anticipated “Super Tuesday” of March 5, which is famously a pivotal campaign moment for prospective presidential candidates hoping to get the lion’s share of primary delegates during an election year.
According to The Guardian, Chutkan previously turned down a request from a Trump attorney for a 2026 trial start date.
Rep. Matt Gaetz, R-Fla., remarked on X, “Judge Chutkan is a political operative in a robe. We should set her censure for a vote ASAP to expose this sham and restore our republic.”
Sen. J.D. Vance, R-Ohio, additionally commented, “Straight up election interference. No other way to put it.”
As previously reported by RSBN, Trump’s projected courtroom schedule is poised to potentially intersect with his 2024 campaigning. Justice Juan Merchan in New York has set a trial date in the “hush money” case for March 25, 2024, and Judge Aileen M. Cannon has set a trial date in the “classified documents” case for May 20, 2024.
President Donald Trump commented on Monday morning, “The division, anger, and hatred that Crooked Joe Biden, the worst and most corrupt President in the history of the United States, has caused by Indicting his Political Opponent, who is leading him in the polls, all for the sake of Election Interference, and getting even for the very fertile investigations of him by the Republican Congress.”
