President Donald Trump will soon have to face trial for the federal investigation surrounding reportedly “classified” documents that the FBI took from Mar-a-Lago last year, according to reports.

Per CNBC, the trial for the case has been set for Aug.14, 2023, which is just weeks away.

RSBN previously reported that Trump had been charged with an astronomical 37 counts related to “mishandling” purportedly classified documents in the investigation. He was arraigned last week at a Miami federal courthouse.

Judge Aileen Cannon, a Trump-appointed justice, ordered the president’s legal team to file their pre-trial motions no later than July 24, and set a location for the trial: Fort Pierce, Florida, according to CNBC.

This news comes just one day after a federal magistrate slapped President Trump with a gag order on the investigation, barring him from discussing the case on social media or with the press.

Last week, Trump scorched the federal probe, demanding that the indictment “be immediately withdrawn by the Injustice Department, with apology!”

His demand was based on the Presidential Records Act, which “allows the president to decide what records to return and what records to keep at the end of his presidency,” as stated by Senior Attorney Michael Bekesha for the Wall Street Journal.

Via the court order, the criminal jury trial will take place at the Alto Lee Adams, Sr. United States Courthouse.

Uncover DC editor Tracy Beanz noted on Twitter that she believed there would be motions made to extend the trial date.

On Truth Social, Trump wrote, “NOTHING ABOUT THE WITCH HUNT CASES BEING BROUGHT AGAINST PRESIDENT TRUMP HAVE ANYTHING TO DO WITH LEGAL MERIT, ONLY WHERE THE CASE COULD BE TRIED BY UNFAIR COURTS AND MAXIMUM PUBLICITY. ELECTION INTERFERENCE!”
