NY Attorney General predicts Fed prosecution will disrupt other Trump cases.

New York Attorney General Expects State-Level Cases Against Trump to be Adjourned

In an interview for Pod Save America, New York Attorney General Letitia James stated that she anticipates state-level cases against former President Donald Trump to be “adjourned” as the federal prosecution against him plays out. This increases the likelihood of high-profile investigations stretching deep into the 2024 election season and beyond.

James predicts that the scheduling of special counsel Jack Smith’s documents case will push back her fraud lawsuit against Trump and his business empire, as well as the criminal cases brought by Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg and Georgia’s Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis. “So it all depends upon the scheduling of this particular case,” James said.

Concerns Over the Appointment of U.S. District Judge Aileen Cannon

James also expressed concerns over the appointment of U.S. District Judge Aileen Cannon, a Trump nominee, to oversee the documents case, noting that her rulings could dictate the pace of the trial. Some legal experts have called on Cannon to recuse herself while citing past rulings tied to the documents matter.

Trump’s Legal Troubles

Trump is expected to appear in a Miami federal courtroom to be arraigned following a grand jury indictment that resulted from Smith’s investigation into the former president’s handling of classified documents after leaving office. Trump faces 31 alleged violations of the Espionage Act for “willful retention” of national defense information as well as counts related to obstruction of justice and false statements.

Trump has already been criminally charged in a hush-money case brought by Bragg, and a trial has been scheduled for March. He may also face charges this summer from the inquiry run by Willis, who is investigating his conduct in relation to the 2020 election. A trial has been set for October in the $250 million lawsuit James brought against Trump, members of his family, and the Trump Organization.

Director of the Prosecuting Attorneys’ Council of Georgia Casts Doubt

Pete Skandalakis, director of the Prosecuting Attorneys’ Council of Georgia, cast doubt upon the assertion that the documents case could disrupt the scheduling of others. Though he noted some exceptions that could lead to a pause, Skandalakis said his research staffers have found “no law that gives the federal government the ability to go first,” according to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

Trump broadly denies any wrongdoing, claiming he is being subject to a “witch hunt” as he runs again for the presidency in 2024. Trump is expected to deliver remarks Tuesday evening after traveling to his club in Bedminster, New Jersey, following his arraignment.
