Former President Donald Trump announced on Monday that he will appeal the decision of Tanya Chutkan, a federal district court judge in Washington, D.C., to set the start date of his Capitol incursion prosecution for March 4, 2024.
That would be just one day before the presidential primary election season’s Super Tuesday.
On March 5, fifteen states, including the two most populous, California and Texas, are scheduled to vote.
Regarding the number of delegates up for grabs, it is the most significant voting date of the primary election season.
Trump responded to Chutkan’s ruling on Truth Social.
“Deranged Jack Smith & his team of Thugs, who were caught going to the White House just prior to Indicting the 45th President of the United States (an absolute No No!), have been working on this Witch Hunt for almost 3 years, but decided to bring it smack in the middle of Crooked Joe Biden’s Political Opponent’s campaign against him,” he wrote.
“Election Interference! Today a biased, Trump Hating Judge gave me only a two month extension, just what our corrupt government wanted, SUPER TUESDAY. I will APPEAL!”
Trump argued in a second post that the entire Capitol incursion indictment stems from the work of the partisan House Jan. 6 Committee, which is managed by Democrats.
“How do you have an Indictment that is based almost entirely on the findings of the January 6th Unselect Committee of Marxists, Fascists, and Political Hacks, when these same lowlifes, who have been caught lying for years about Russia, Russia, Russia, Ukraine, Ukraine, Ukraine, FISA, the Fake Dossier, & much more, purposely & Illegally DESTROYED & DELETED all of the Evidence, Findings, & Proof of the January 6th Committee?” the Republican candidate asked.
“When will Deranged Jack Smith Criminally Charge the Committee?” Trump further queried.

“Now they’re demanding a quick trial,” he continued. “The defendant, not the government nor the public, has the right to a speedy (and fair) trial. Trump’s getting railroaded. Blatant election interference.” CONTINUE READING…
