( – Former President Donald Trump has been trying to delay the criminal cases against him, which could allow him to move toward the presidential election season without having any verdict in any of the cases. 

The election interference federal case in Washington, D.C., is currently on pause until the Supreme Court decides on Trump’s immunity claims. While the Florida classified documents case has not yet been rescheduled it is widely believed that will be the case. 

The New York hush money criminal trial is also in a precarious position when it comes to scheduling as the trial has been delayed until mid-April at the earliest. One of the key issues in this is the last-minute evidence that has been added to the case from a 2018 federal investigation looking into the same case matter. 

Following a complaint from Trump’s legal team the Manhattan district attorney’s office has argued that they would support a possible 30-day delay which will allow the defense team the necessary time to look through all of the material. However, Trump’s lawyers have been pushing for a 90-day delay while also stating that the case needed to be dismissed. 

The hearing is currently scheduled for March 25, with Judge Juan Manuel Merchan’s original schedule calling for the day jury selection to already decide on the late-breaking issues. The case relates to Trump’s alleged hush money payment in 2016 relating to an alleged affair with adult film star Stormy Daniels. The charges against Trump in this case relate to the falsification of business records in order to hide the payment.
