Prosecutors agree to 30-day delay of Trump's NY hush money trial – EVOL

Prosecutors in Manhattan asked Thursday for a month-long delay of their hush-money case against former President Donald Trump, less than two weeks before the Republican presidential candidate was set to go to trial.

Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg agreed to the 30-day adjournment so that the ex-president’s lawyers can sift through thousands of pages of newly disclosed evidence from U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of New York Damian Williams.

Trump’s trial on charges of covering up payments to porn star Stormy Daniels to silence her story about an alleged affair had been set to start on March 25.

But Williams’ office turned over 31,000 pages of new evidence related to the case on Wednesday. Williams’ office will produce another round of evidence next week, Bragg’s office added in a court filing.
