The trial against former US President Donald Trump in the attempted election fraud case is set to begin later than planned. The Federal Court is responsible The capital is Washington It announced on Friday (local time) that the trial originally scheduled for March 4 would be postponed and a new date would be set at a later date.
The background to the change is still open legal questions in the case. In particular, the question is whether Trump can be sued. The former US president argues that he is immune because he was the US president at the time of the incident. It is not known whether he will succeed. The audience sees this argument as an attempt to buy time. Trump wants to use all means to prevent the investigation from starting before the November election.
The trial was expected to be adjourned. Federal Judge Tanya Sudkhan has recently issued several indications that she will postpone the hearing until the question of immunity is clarified. Accordingly, he announced on Friday that the process would begin “once the question is answered”. (pcl/dpa)
