Jack Smith’s J6 Case Against President Trump Removed from DC Court Docket

Several reports indicate that the Trump election interference case in Washington DC has been removed from the court calendar, with the case being postponed indefinitely.

Originally scheduled for March 4, 2024, before Super Tuesday, this development is a huge blow to Special Counsel Jack Smith and the Democrat party.

The Democrat Party and globalist left had hoped to leverage this legal battle to tarnish Trump’s image in the media ahead of Super Tuesday.

Former president Donald Trump’s March 4 trial date on charges of plotting to overturn the results of the 2020 election has been dropped from the public calendar of the federal court in Washington, a sign of what has long been anticipated — that his claim of presidential immunity from criminal prosecution would delay his trial while it remains on appeal.

The change did not appear on the official criminal case docket before U.S. District Judge Tanya S. Chutkan, who has made clear since Trump filed his appeal on Dec. 7 that all trial deadlines would be suspended while he challenges the case. On appeal, Trump is arguing that the government does not have authority under the Constitution to bring charges against him for actions he took while president after the 2020 election through the Jan. 6, 2021, Capitol attack, when he attempted to prevent Congress from confirming Joe Biden’s election victory.

A delay in the D.C. case makes it increasingly likely that the first of Trump’s four criminal trials could be held this spring in Manhattan on New York state charges of business fraud in connection with hush money payments during the 2016 election. That trial has nominally been set for March 25, but the court in that case has signaled deference to Trump’s federal election subversion case. New York Supreme Court Justice Juan Merchan has scheduled a pretrial hearing in two weeks — Feb. 15 — and is expected to decide after that if the trial will go forward as planned.

As of at least Thursday, the March 4 trial date was dropped from a date-searchable calendar on the public website of the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia. It was not immediately clear when it was removed. An internal master court trial calendar distributed Jan. 26 showed Trump’s trial date, suggesting the change was recent, according to a federal official who spoke on the condition of anonymity to discuss an internal document.

Rep. Anna Paulina Luna is demanding answers from Jack Smith regarding his investigation into President Trump and his qualifications as a specially appointed prosecutor.

Smith was given 9 days to respond to Luna’s inquiry, yet, interestingly, the case was promptly removed from the calendar just hours after Luna’s office sent the letter to him.
