Where Trump's three other criminal cases stand after his New York conviction

That of former President Donald Trump conviction for all 34 state crimes in New York could mean the end of the pilot phase in the hush money casebut one three prosecutions continue to loom over the former president and presumptive Republican presidential nominee.

Trump remains charged in two cases filed in federal courts in South Florida and Washington, D.C., by special counsel Jack Smith and in one prosecution in state court led by Fulton County, Georgia, District Attorney Fani Willis. He will be sentenced on July 11 in the New York case.

Cases are moving slowly and Trump has tried to delay any trials until after the November presidential election. If he wins a second term in the White House, Trump could order the Justice Department to drop federal charges, or, if he is previously convicted on federal charges, he could try to pardon himself, but this has never been done and legal proceedings may follow. challenge.

Here's where each of the three remaining cases are:

The document case

In a case filed in federal court in South Florida, Trump is charged with 40 counts stemming from his alleged mishandling of sensitive government documents after leaving the White House and attempts to obstruct the Justice Department's investigation . In addition to Trump, two others were charged: his assistant Walt Nauta and Mar-a-Lago property manager Carlos de Oliveira. All three defendants have pleaded not guilty.

There was a trial in the case starts on May 20but U.S. District Judge Aileen Cannon, who is overseeing the proceedings, postponed indefinitely It. Cannon, appointed to the court by Trump, cited pending pretrial motions, issues surrounding how secret evidence would be used in the case, and other pretrial and pretrial preparations as justification for the postpone the process.

The judge has yet to rule on several requests from Trump and his co-defendants to dismiss charges against them filed in February. The former president has argued that's how the charges should be thrown away on the basis of prosecutorial misconduct, vindictive prosecution, and presidential immunity. Smith and his team have urged Cannon to deny Trump's requests and rejected the allegations about the prosecution.

Cannon has continued to do so unseal files that shed light on the proceedings that took place during the federal investigation into Trump's handling of documents classified as classified after the end of his presidency. More documents could be made public in the coming months.

The 2020 election case

The second federal prosecution brought by Smith, this one in Washington, D.C., concerns Trump's alleged plot to undermine the transition of power after the 2020 presidential election. He was charged with four offences in August 2023 and pleaded not guilty.

U.S. District Judge Tanya Chutkan, who was assigned to the case, scheduled a trial to begin on March 4. But the procedure did been on hold since December as Trump appealed against unfavorable decisions who discovered it was him not entitled to sweeping immunity from federal prosecution.

Chutkan and a unanimous three-judge panel of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit ruled that Trump is not protected from criminal prosecution by presidential immunity. Trump appealed to the Supreme Court arguments heard in April on whether a former president enjoys presidential immunity for alleged official actions he took in the White House.

The Supreme Court has not yet ruled, but is expected to do so in the coming weeks. If Trump prevails, it would end Smith's prosecution. But if the Supreme Court sides with the special counsel, it would pave the way for the proceedings to resume.

Some judges seemed likely to recognize some degree of immunity from federal prosecution for a former president's official actions, but indicated they could send the dispute back to the lower courts for additional proceedings over whether Trump's alleged actions were taken around the 2020 election in his capacity as president or as a private citizen.

A ruling requiring lower courts to conduct further analysis would make it unlikely that a trial would take place before November's presidential election.

The election case in Georgia

A Fulton County grand jury sued Trump And 18 allies in August 2023 in an elaborate racketeering case stemming from an alleged scheme to overturn the results of the 2020 presidential election in Georgia.

Trump was initially charged with thirteen state crimes, but… three of them were thrown away by Fulton County Superior Judge Scott McAfee, who is overseeing the case. Trump pleaded not guilty for all charges. Willis is appealing against the dismissal of some charges.

Four of the eighteen original co-suspects pleaded guilty after reaching plea deals with prosecutors.

No trial date has yet been set in the Fulton County case, and the proceedings were derailed for months after one of Trump's co-defendants, Michael Roman, tried to have Willis and her office removed from the case. Roman accused Willis and Nathan Wadea special prosecutor hired to work on the investigation into having an inappropriate romantic relationship from which Willis financially benefited.

Trump and seven others joined Roman's effort to have Willis disqualified from the case and the charges dismissed.

Willis and Wade admitted that they were romantically involved, but denied that Willis benefited financially. Both said their relationship began after Wade's hiring in November 2021 and ended in the summer of 2023. McAfee eventually rejected the request to kick Willis and her office off the case, but said Wade should resign, which he did.

Trump and his co-defendants appealed McAfee's decision to the Georgia Court of Appeals agreed to review the pronounciation.

The former president has sought to dismiss the charges on numerous grounds, including that he has absolute immunity from prosecution and that the charges violate the First Amendment. McAfee arrived in April rejected Trump's offer to have the charges dismissed on First Amendment grounds. Trump and his allies are trying to appeal that order.
