Judge rejects Donald Trump’s request to postpone criminal trial until Supreme Court rules on immunity

A judge on Wednesday rejected the request for donald trump to postpone his criminal trial for payments he made to conceal information, scheduled for April 15, until the Supreme Court to rule on the presidential immunity that he raised in another of his criminal proceedings.

Manhattan Judge Juan M. Merchan called the request ill-timed and determined that Trump’s lawyers had “endless opportunities” to raise the immunity issue until they finally did so last month, long after the deadline for filing motions. prior to trial.

The timing of the defense’s March 7 request “raises real questions about its sincerity and the true purpose of the motion,” Merchan wrote in his six-page decision.

The lawyers of Trump, the virtual presidential candidate for the Republican Partyhad asked Merchan to indefinitely postpone the trial until his immunity claim in the case he faces in Washington for election interference was resolved.
