Former US President Donald Trump’s (77) election meddling trial has been adjourned indefinitely, with Federal Judge Tanya Chutkan issuing the order last Friday local time.

This development occurred as Trump’s appeal was being heard in court, delaying the trial that was scheduled to start on March 4. Trump, who was defeated by Democratic candidate Joe Biden in the 2020 presidential election, faced allegations of attempting to change the election results. He was charged with four counts, including conspiracy against the state, conspiracy to obstruct official duties, obstruction of official duties, and conspiracy against civil rights. These allegations surfaced last year, and despite Trump’s intention to run for office again as a Republican candidate, the trial’s progress has been hindered.

Trump’s legal team argues against the criminal charges, citing his presidency at the time of the alleged incidents. A three-member panel of the nation’s federal appeals court is currently reviewing whether a sitting president can be held liable for such actions, with a ruling expected early next week.

However, it’s anticipated that the election interference case against Trump may be delayed for several months as the appeals process unfolds. Furthermore, the case is likely to reach the Supreme Court due to the Republican majority, potentially impacting future presidencies.

Trump consistently denies the allegations of election meddling, accusing the Justice Department and the Biden administration of political persecution. Additionally, Trump faces trial in three other criminal cases, including allegations related to the 2020 Georgia state election, mishandling of official documents post-presidency, and alleged bribes during the 2016 election involving Stormy Daniels. The trial for the Stormy Daniels case is set to commence on March 25 in New York, marking Trump’s first criminal trial since the conclusion of the election interference case.

This succinctly summarizes the current status of Trump’s legal challenges and provides valuable insight into the ongoing legal proceedings surrounding his presidency and post-presidential activities.
