Conservatives enraged by Trump’s trial date set day before Super Tuesday

U.S. District Judge Tanya Chutkan confirmed that former President Donald Trump’s trial would take place on March 4, just one day before Super Tuesday.


Special counsel Jack Smith and his team had pushed for the trial in January, but Trump’s team requested the trial be postponed until 2026.


Defending her decision, Chutkan said the trial “cannot and should not” be determined by the defendant’s work life," according to The Hill.


Trump has now been indicted four times with 91 charges, the most recent for efforts to overturn the 2020 election. Though outraged by the trial and claiming election interference, Conservatives are rallying around the former president more than ever.


“The Left knows they can’t beat Trump, so they’re using the justice system instead,” Senator Marsha Blackburn, R-Tenn., wrote on X.


Georgia Representative Marjorie Taylor Greene responded to a post about the trial date.


“Can it be any more obvious that all of these indictments are nothing more than ELECTION INTERFERENCE!!!” the congresswoman wrote.


Representative Jim Banks, R-Ind., also running for Senate, called the trial date decision a “total sham.”


15 states will hold primaries on Super Tuesday, including Alabama, Alaska, Arkansas, California, Colorado, Maine, Massachusetts, Minnesota, North Carolina, Oklahoma, Tennessee, Texas, Utah, Vermont and Virginia.


“Chutkan should be thrown off the bench and run for DNC Chair,” Republican Florida Representative and Trump supporter Byron Donalds said. “Their attempts to interfere with the 2024 presidential election are so brazen it's disgusting.”
