(FeaturedNews.com) – On Tuesday, Judge Aileen Cannon indefinitely postponed the classified document mishandling trial of former President Donald Trump. The trial was originally set to start on May 20, however, it is now unclear whether or not the case will be brought in front of a jury as Cannon has declined to set a trial date. 

Cannon stated that the delay is because they need to resolve a lot of issues that have emerged relating to the handling of the classified information for the trial. The handling of the documents falls under the regulations of the Classified Information Procedures Act (CIPA). 

Cannon noted that the Court has determined that it is not possible to finalize the date of the trial when there has not been a resolution to the CIPA and pre-trial issues that continue to come forward. She added that it would be inconsistent with the duty to fairly consider the motions that the Court has to move forward. This decision has resulted in many questions regarding whether or not the trial would ever go to court. 

Cannon’s recent move is aligned with one of the first requests made by Trump’s legal team as they had called for her not to schedule a trial date. This relatively late decision regarding the trial date comes after Cannon failed to take action on a number of motions that had been brought forward including all of the cases by Trump and his legal team pushing for the case to be dismissed. 

The new trial deadline is going to be pushed until July if not later.
