Anderson Cooper talked to Maggie Haberman about the Trump delaying tactics in two federal cases and their probable outcome. "Judge Aileen Cannon said she will not delay the trial start date, scheduled for May of next year," he said.
He noted that last week, she appeared to be leaning toward a delay but that it didn't happen.
"She did say she will revisit the decision in March, just days before he's set to go on trial in the special counsel's other investigation in attempts to overturn the 2020 election. Judge Cannon today did agree with the former president's team that they need more time to prepare for the case. and she pushed back several filing deadlines, including those that involve reviewing the classified documents at the heart of the case," he said.
He asked Maggie Haberman what she thought of the decision.
"She literally was essentially splitting the decision. She gave herself until next year to revisit it. As you note, this is going to happen around the time he is going on trial in D.C., or scheduled to. So, she will look at that calendar and decide whether she has to move hers," Haberman said.
