Stop the Presses. Thanks to Jack Smith, Trump trial in Florida will be after the elections. First I figured that with the judges ruling that Smith had to reveal his 84 witnesses, I would think that Trumps attorneys would want to depose them. How long would that take?
I was involved in a case where three people were deposed. Took six months. Now with the new charges, Smith will have to reveal his witness list, and I’m sure there will be deposition hearings for them.
Finally with the new charges, I’m sure Trumps new lawyers will ask for more time to prepare. So I doubt that this case will be not heard in May like the judge said.
