Trump Urges Supreme Court to Pause Election Trial While He Appeals Immunity - EVOL

Trump’s legal team says there are overwhelming reasons why the case should not go to trial ‘in three months or less.’

Former President Donald Trump, in response to special prosecutor Jack Smith’s filing, on Thursday again urged the Supreme Court to grant a stay of his trial over his alleged actions related to Jan. 6, 2021.

“There are overwhelming reasons why the case should not go to trial ‘in three months or less,’” President Trump’s attorneys said in a 14-page filing.

“The case involves almost 13 million pages of discovery, thousands of hours of video footage, and hundreds of potential witnesses,” the filing continues.

“With any other defendant, it would be virtually unthinkable for the case to go to trial so soon, and ‘wildly unfair’ to do so.”

President Trump’s legal team seeks to dismiss a federal criminal case against him based on presidential immunity, arguing in a 110-page appeal on Monday that the “presidency as we know it” is at stake without such protection.

The appeal aims to stay a lower court decision pending a review from the high court, arguing that it is a novel and important legal question of presidential immunity that needs to be settled by the Supreme Court.
