SCOTUS agrees to appeal that could save Trump

The U.S. Supreme Court has said it will hear an appeal against Capitol riot obstruction charges brought against more than 300 people, including Donald Trump, in a move that could delay the former president’s federal trial.

A four-count federal indictment brought against the Republican by Special Counsel Jack Smith accuses him of working to overturn the results of the 2020 election.

Trump and others have been accused of obstruction of an official proceeding by attempting to disrupt Congress’ certification of Joe Biden’s 2020 election victory on January 6, 2021, when supporters of the former president violently stormed the Capitol to protest the results.

Trump is also charged with conspiracy to obstruct an official proceeding. He has pleaded not guilty to the charges and has repeatedly denied all wrongdoing.

The trial is currently scheduled to begin on March 4, but with the Supreme Court to hear arguments in March or April, and a decision expected by early summer, the start date may be delayed.

If the former president’s trials are delayed until after the November 2024 election and Trump wins, he can order the Department of Justice to dismiss the charges.
