Trump Announces His Move After His Trial Date Is Set for Day Before Super Tuesday


In a move that has raised many eyebrows, the date for former President Donald Trump’s Capitol incursion trial has been set for March 4, 2024. The timing is interesting, to say the least, as it falls just one day before the crucial Super Tuesday during the presidential primary election season.

On Super Tuesday, fifteen states, which include major players like California and Texas, will cast their votes. With the vast number of delegates at stake, it’s an event that can reshape the dynamics of the primary season.

Trump, never one to shy away from voicing his opinions, took to Truth Social, decrying the timing as part of an ongoing “Witch Hunt.” He pointedly commented on the intriguing timing of the trial date in relation to Super Tuesday, suggesting it might be another tactic to interfere with the election process.

The former president didn’t stop there. He also questioned the legitimacy of the indictment, attributing it primarily to the work of the Democrat-led Jan. 6 Committee. His concerns mirrored those of many conservatives who have questioned the committee’s objectivity and its past associations with controversies like the Russia investigation.

Mike Davis, leader of the Article III Project, commented on the trial date’s timing, highlighting how it took the Biden Justice Department a lengthy 30 months to bring charges against Trump. Yet, they now seem eager for a swift trial. Davis emphasized the importance of a defendant’s right to a fair and speedy trial, suggesting Trump is facing “blatant election interference.”

Collin Rugg, a political commentator, also noted the irony of the situation. U.S. District Judge Tanya Chutkan, by setting Trump’s trial date close to Super Tuesday, is inadvertently (or purposefully) influencing the 2024 election, an act that is, in itself, akin to election interference.

It’s also worth noting that Judge Chutkan had previously ruled against Trump in 2021, making him hand over presidential records to the Jan. 6 committee.

As the states of Alabama, Alaska, Arkansas, California, Colorado, Maine, Massachusetts, Minnesota, North Carolina, Oklahoma, Tennessee, Texas, Utah, Vermont, and Virginia prepare to vote, the spotlight on Trump’s trial will undoubtedly cast a long shadow over Super Tuesday. Whether this was an accidental overlap or a strategic move remains a question in the minds of many.
