Trump lawyers try to avoid Election Day trialIn a freewheeling discussion Friday over picking a date for Donald Trump’s Georgia election racketeering trial, his lawyer argued there is little time to try the former president before the 2024 election − and the Republican frontrunner couldn’t be tried after then if he wins.

But prosecutors seeking an August start to the trial, which could anchor Trump behind the defense table on election day, denied the case would interfere with his ability to campaign.

Fulton County Superior Judge Scott McAfee made no decision but raised prickly questions about how to schedule a trial as Trump campaigns again for the White House.

“I think that’s obviously something we’re going to be taking up in greater detail in the new year," McAfee said.

Trump and 14 remaining co-defendants are charged with conspiring to overturn the results of the 2020 election. Four co-defendants have pleaded guilty, but Trump and the rest have pleaded not guilty. Meanwhile, polls show Trump as the front-runner for the Republican nomination to challenge President Joe Biden.
