Judge Sets March 4, 2024 for Trump’s D.C. Election-obstruction Trial

Trump's team wanted it to be held in 2026

U.S. District Judge Tanya S. Chutkan has scheduled Donald Trump’s D.C. trial on charges of attempting to overturn the 2020 presidential election for March 4, 2024. A separate hearing was being held in Atlanta Monday morning to determine whether Trump’s former chief of staff, Mark Meadows, can move his election-related indictment from state to federal court. Trump is a frontrunner in the Republican 2024 presidential contest, and the D.C. trial’s starting date is the day before the Super Tuesday primaries.

At her first hearing overseeing the 2020 election obstruction case against former president Donald Trump in Washington, D.C., U.S. District Judge Tanya S. Chutkan said she intended "to keep politics out of this."

Legal experts say that will be a tricky task, especially in a criminal prosecution in which politicians or their aides are the alleged perpetrators, witnesses and victims, and the defendant is running for president.
