Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis’ office has requested that the judge overseeing Donald Trump’s 2020 election fraud case in Georgia set the start of the trial for March 4, 2024—the day before Super Tuesday, according to court filings.
If granted by the judge, Trump is looking at a jam-packed court schedule as he heads into the primaries, with four criminal trials possibly slated within the span of five months.
But Ty Cobb, a former Trump White House lawyer, poured cold water on the prospects of a March trial. With 19 defendants and a slew of different charges, he said there’s “no chance” Willis will be able to begin within two years.
