Trial in Trump Classified Documents Case Set for May 2024

Trump's attorneys had sought a date after November 2024

Former President Donald Trump's trial over his alleged mishandling of classified documents will begin on May 20 next year, according to a U.S. court order on Friday.

Trump's lawyers had resisted setting a date but said any trial should take place after the November 2024 U.S. presidential election, in which he is front-runner for the Republican nomination.

A Trump spokesperson said the trial schedule "allows President Trump and his legal team to continue fighting" the criminal case. A spokesperson for U.S. Special Counsel Jack Smith's office declined to comment.
