Judge Pushes Donald Trump’s New York Hush-money Trial To Mid-april

The trial for former President Donald Trump’s hush-money case in Manhattan has been postponed until April, as agreed by the judge on Friday, March 15.

The trial, which was originally scheduled for March 25, will now be postponed for 30 days from Friday, according to Judge Juan Merchan.

Trump’s legal team made a request for a 90-day delay following the production of tens of thousands of documents by the Justice Department this month.

According to Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg, the documents have little relevance to the case at hand. However, he has expressed his willingness to postpone the trial by 30 days.

In 2018, Michael Cohen pleaded guilty to multiple criminal charges, which included making hush-money payments to women who alleged having affairs with Trump. The newly released documents pertain to his guilty plea.


He entered a plea of not guilty.

The trial in Manhattan was set to be the initial criminal case against Trump. On Thursday, U.S. District Judge Aileen Cannon denied one of Trump’s attempts to dismiss the case, which accuses him of mishandling classified documents based on “unconstitutional vagueness.”

Former President Donald Trump is currently facing criminal charges for his involvement in attempting to overturn the 2020 presidential election and the events that took place during the Jan. 6 Capitol riot.
