Dems’ strategy of shackling Trump with burdensome legal challenges is going down in flames.

Former President Donald Trump received good news this week, as two of his court cases appear unlikely to go to trial before the 2024 election.

On Tuesday, Florida Judge Aileen Cannon, overseeing the ex-president’s classified documents federal case prosecuted by Special Counsel Jack Smith, ruled to indefinitely postpone the trial, citing a burdensome number of “outstanding pre-trial motions” unlikely to be resolved by the anticipated May 20 trial date.

The “finalization of a trial date at this juncture … would be imprudent and inconsistent with the Court’s duty to fully and fairly consider the various pending pre-trial motions before the Court,” Judge Cannon wrote in her ruling.

“Cannon said there were eight outstanding substantive pending motions for her to rule on and predicted this will take until at least late July,” reports Newsweek.

Axios notes: “Cannon’s Tuesday ruling is a win for Trump, who has successfully pushed for delays in multiple criminal trials ahead of November’s election.”

On Wednesday, Trump received more positive legal news.

An appeals court in Georgia agreed to review a challenge by Trump’s legal team arguing a judge erred two months ago when he allowed Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis to remain on the ex-president’s RICO case, despite a trial exposing impropriety by Willis and the prosecutor she assigned, Nathan Wade.

Last March, Fulton County Superior Court Judge Scott McAfee, who evidently donated to Willis’ campaign, ruled she could continue to oversee the case despite a trial finding she paid Wade large sums of money and went on vacations together, with her claiming she repaid him in cash.

The Georgia Court of Appeals has agreed to hear an appeal from defendants over whether the judge erred when he ruled that Fani Willis could remain on the Trump RICO prosecution in Fulton County. This pushes that trial further off, likely beyond the election.

MSNBC reporter Joyce Alene commented the appeal “pushes that trial further off, likely beyond the election.”

While two of the former president’s court cases appear to be going well, Trump on Wednesday railed against judges in his other cases, calling them out for running interference for Joe Biden and subverting the will of American voters.
