Mysterious disappearance? Trump’s Jan. 6 case REMOVED from the docket
The Washington, D.C.-based case against President Donald Trump (United States of America v. Donald J. Trump) has been dropped from the court’s docket this week, causing a flutter of curiosity online.
After the news broke Thursday night, Rep. Anna Paulina Luna, R-Fla., wrote on X, “Within hours of my office sending a letter asking Jack Smith to produce information regarding his investigation, his case against Trump is removed from the docket.”
She added, “Jack Smith owes the American people and Congress answers.”
Upon further examination, Just Security’s “Master List” of Trump’s upcoming court dates and appearances confirmed that the Monday, March 4, date for the D.C. trial had been delayed.
“Trial was to have begun, now held in abeyance pending resolution of appeal,” the calendar noted.
As previously reported by RSBN, President Trump has appealed the election-related case and argued that he had presidential immunity.
“I wasn’t campaigning, the Election was long over. I was looking for voter fraud, and finding it, which is my obligation to do, and otherwise running running [sic] our Country,” he countered.
The Washington Post confirmed that the trial would likely be delayed indefinitely while the case remains on appeal.
The president was indicted in Washington, D.C., last year by a federal grand jury that charged him with four counts:
- Conspiracy to defraud the United States,
- Conspiracy to obstruct an official proceeding,
- Obstruction of and attempt to obstruct an official proceeding,
- Conspiracy against rights.
This newest delay in the D.C. trial comes amid what is shaping up to be a harrowing crisscross of court dates and campaign events for the 45th president as he continues his 2024 presidential bid to reclaim the White House in November.
