Donald Trump’s judicial calendar: five dates in sight


Donald Trump’s political race to regain the White House in November 2024 runs parallel to the calendar of subpoenas for several cases in which he is being investigated. 

The Republican front-runner to replace Joe Biden as U.S. president is using his time in court to boost his chances of victory in a two-way contest: his party’s primaries and the presidential election.

Donald Trump’s judicial presence is convoluted, but, in his case, it could be an advantage rather than a problem. To date, Donald Trump is the first former president of the country to be charged, in this case, for the alleged illegal payment to porn actress Stormy Daniels during the 2016 election campaign in exchange for her silence.

With the classified documents came the second indictment. And if the one on Capitol Hill arrives, it will be the third.

These are not, in any case, the only processes in which the controversial Donald Trump, 77, is involved because Donald Trump has several open fronts for political, economic and sexual crimes and may see his political objectives seriously hindered if he is convicted or charged again.

Donald Trump faces a complicated judicial calendar with two criminal cases and three civil trials. We think about the latter:

  • On October 2, 2023, at the request of New York’s attorney general, Donald Trump faced an indictment in a business fraud case against his organization.
  • On January 15, 2024, Donald Trump will be tried again in the defamation case against writer E. Jean Carroll.
  • On January 29, 2024, the former president faced a trial for a federal class action lawsuit for promoting a pyramid scheme.

As for the two criminal trials facing the former Republican president, the dates are as follows, according to the website Axios:

  • On March 24, 2024, Donald Trump will have the first criminal trial accused of falsifying business records to hide illegal income.
  • On May 20, 2024, he will testify as investigated in the second criminal trial for the theft of confidential documents.

However, Donald Trump’s judicial calendar may become even more complicated as several prosecutors may announce new indictments in cases still being investigated concerning election interference.
