In the Georgia election case against former President Donald Trump and 18 other defendants, Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis has reportedly now proposed a trial start date of March 4.
Additionally, DA Willis is recommending that the defendants’ arraignments take place the week of September 5.
A grand jury in Fulton County on Monday charged Trump along with 18 other defendants.
They are accused of committing a number of crimes as part of a plot to maintain Trump’s hold on power following his loss to Democrat Joe Biden in the 2020 presidential election.
The offenders had previously been given until noon on August 25 to voluntarily surrender to Georgia police, according to the prosecutor for the Atlanta region.
Trump is probably going to contest the schedule outlined by Willis’ office.
Trump’s lawyers have argued for postponing the trials in his other ongoing criminal charges until after the 2024 presidential race.
Trump continues to lead the pack of Republicans running in the 2024 Republican primary despite his increased attention on relitigating his allegations of widespread election fraud in the 2020 cycle.
