A federal judge has indefinitely postponed the trial date of former President Donald Trump’s classified documents case. The decision comes after Special Counsel Jack Smith admitted some evidence in the trial is not in its original form.

According to Fox News, the trial was originally scheduled for May 20, but Judge Aileen Cannon of the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Florida delayed the trial, arguing it would be “imprudent and inconsistent with the Court’s duty to fully and fairly consider the various pending pre-trial motions” due to the “myriad and interconnected pre-trial” problems “remaining and forthcoming.”

“The Court therefore vacates the current May 20, 2024, trial date (and associated calendar call), to be reset by separate order following resolution of the matters before the Court, consistent with Defendants’ right to due process and the public’s interest in the fair and efficient administration of justice,” Cannon wrote.

Last week, Smith admitted the documents confiscated during the FBI raid on Trump’s Florida home are not in their original state. Prosecutors previously assured the court that the files were “in their original, intact form as seized.”

“There are some boxes where the order of items within that box is not the same as in the associated scans,” Smith admits in court documents.

The FBI raided Mar-A-Lago in 2022, a move Trump at the time called “weaponization of the Justice System.”

“It is prosecutorial misconduct, the weaponization of the Justice System, and an attack by Radical Left Democrats who desperately don’t want me to run for President in 2024, especially based on recent polls, and who will likewise do anything to stop Republicans and Conservatives in the upcoming Midterm Elections,” Trump said.
