The J6 case against Donald Trump has been removed from the Washington, D.C. circuit court’s public calendar.
There are now outstanding appeals in the case, which was brought forward by Special Counsel Jack Smith and presided over by Judge Tanya Chutkan.
“Former president Donald Trump’s March 4 trial date on charges of plotting to overturn the results of the 2020 election has been dropped from the public calendar of the federal court in Washington, a sign of what has long been anticipated — that his claim of presidential immunity from criminal prosecution would delay his trial while it remains on appeal,” the Washington Post reported.
As of at least Thursday, the March 4 trial date was dropped from a date-searchable calendar on the public website of the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia.
It was not readily apparent when the entry was eliminated. The inclusion of Trump’s trial date on an internal master court trial calendar that was disseminated on January 26 indicates that the change occurred recently, according to a federal official who requested anonymity in order to discuss an internal document.
In an opinion published on December 1, Judge Chutkan refuted the arguments put forth by Trump, asserting that his presidency “did not confer upon him the divine right of kings to evade the criminal accountability that is imposed on his fellow citizens.” She stated that his impeachment charge of double jeopardy contradicted the “plain meaning, original intent, and common sense” of the Constitution.
The Supreme Court may disagree with the radical judge.
