Trump seeks to delay classified documents trial until after 2024 election


Donald Trump has asked for his trial on charges of illegally stashing classified documents to be postponed until after the 2024 election.[BBC]

In a filing on Monday, lawyers for the former US president said a proposed trial date of 11 December would deny them reasonable time to prepare.

They also cited challenges in finding an impartial jury due to the election.

Mr Trump pleaded not guilty to 37 counts during an arraignment in Miami, Florida last month.

Prosecutors allege he illegally held on to files with sensitive information at his Mar-a-Lago estate and obstructed federal government efforts to retrieve them.
