Judge rejects Trump’s request to postpone NY hush money trial



In a setback for former U.S. President Donald Trump, a New York appellate judge has denied his request to delay his upcoming criminal trial scheduled for April 15.

The trial pertains to charges linked to hush money paid to a porn star, with Trump also seeking to relocate the case out of Manhattan.

The ruling, delivered on Monday, marks a significant development in the legal proceedings against Trump, who has been embroiled in various legal battles since leaving office.

The trial specifically revolves around allegations of falsifying business records to conceal payments made to adult film actress Stormy Daniels prior to the 2016 presidential election.

Change of venue

Despite Trump’s efforts to postpone the trial and change its venue, the appellate judge rejected these requests, signaling that the case will proceed as scheduled in Manhattan.

The decision comes amidst heightened scrutiny of Trump’s business dealings and conduct during his time in office.

It underscores the ongoing legal challenges facing the former president as he navigates various investigations and lawsuits.

Trump’s legal team had argued for the delay, citing the need for additional time to prepare and requesting a change of venue to avoid what they deemed as potential bias in Manhattan.

However, the judge’s ruling indicates a firm stance on maintaining the trial’s timetable and location.

The outcome of the trial could have significant implications for Trump, both legally and politically.

With the proceedings set to unfold just months after his departure from the White House, the case has drawn widespread attention and speculation about its potential ramifications.

These military manoeuvres are seen as a show of force and a warning to Taiwan and its supporters against any moves perceived as challenging China’s territorial claims.
