Trump Receives Great Win In FLA Case

( – In the summer of 2023, former President Donald Trump was indicted on over three dozen felony counts related to his alleged mishandling of classified documents, making false statements, and obstructing justice. The matter was set to go to trial this month, but the Trump-appointed judge assigned to the case made a ruling that ensures an indefinite delay in justice.

On May 7, US District Judge Aileen Cannon vacated the May 20th court date to start the trial and did not schedule a new date, leaving it open-ended. Instead, she scheduled pre-trial hearings to run through the end of July.

The prosecution was hoping the case would come to a conclusion before the 2024 presidential election so voters would know whether or not Trump was found guilty of the crimes he is facing in Florida before casting their votes. However, Cannon’s recent ruling greatly reduces the chance of that happening.

Representative Greg Steube (R-FL) called the move by Cannon a “great win” for Trump. The lawmaker appeared for an interview on Newsmax’s “Carl Higbie FRONTLINE,” where he called the case just a “distraction” brought by Democrats who were focused on keeping Trump “off the campaign trail” by tying him up in court.

Not only that, Steube claims that Democrats were trying to force the presumptive GOP candidate to spend his money defending himself in multiple states, leaving little for him to campaign. He claimed it was an “election interference strategy” to help them win in November.

Steube stated this was a big hit to Jack Smith, the special prosecutor overseeing multiple cases against Trump. The lawmaker said Smith won’t be able to take the case elsewhere because the classified documents were found at Mar-a-Lago — in Florida. He applauded Cannon on her decision to delay the case.

Trump has pleaded not guilty to the charges against him in Florida and elsewhere.
