Fani Willis Asks Judge to Move Trial Start Date For Trump and 18 Co-Defendants to October 23

Fani Willis asked the Court to move the trial date for President Trump and 18 other co-defendants in her RICO and conspiracy case to October 23.

The DA originally set a trial date for March 4, 2024, the day before Super Tuesday and a week before the Georgia presidential primary.

Willis asked the Court to move up the trial date after co-defendant Kenneth Chesebro filed a demand for a speedy trial.

Trump’s lawyer Kenneth Chesebro was charged with count 1 (RICO), 9 (Conspiracy to Commit Impersonating a Public Officer), 11 (Conspiracy to Commit Forgery in the First Degree), 13 (Conspiracy to Commit False Statements and Writings), 15 (Conspiracy to Commit Filing False Documents), 17 (Conspiracy to Commit Forgery in the First Degree), and 19 (Conspiracy to Commit False Statements and Writings).

CNBC reported:

An Atlanta prosecutor on Thursday asked a judge to begin the Georgia election interference trial for Donald Trump and 18 other defendants on Oct. 23.

The scheduling request by Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis came a day after one of Trump’s co-defendants, attorney Kenneth Chesebro, filed a demand for a speedy trial in the county Superior Court.

Willis directly cited Chesebro’s demand in her filing Thursday.

Chesebro’s lawyers, Scott Grubman and Manny Arora, in a statement to NBC News about Willis’ filing, said, “Mr. Chesebro will be prepared to move forward with trial for whatever date the Court ultimately sets.”
