Jack Smith Begs Judge to Block Trump from Delaying Trial: ‘This Must Stop’

Special Counsel Jack Smith appears to be outraged over President Donald Trump’s efforts to delay his classified documents trial.

Smith is reportedly being driven out of his wits by his ongoing struggle to bring Trump to trial.

The federal prosecutor could not hide his exasperation in a court filing urging Florida Judge Aileen Cannon to block Trump from delaying his trial any further.

“This must stop,” Smith blasted.

Smith slammed Trump’s argument about overlapping court obligations in New York.

The special counsel insists that Trump’s argument, that the trial prevents his legal team from making a deadline in the Florida case, is “plainly wrong.”

Jury selection began on Monday in Trump’s “hush money” trial in New York.

Trump’s legal team asked Cannon to postpone a May 9 deadline until after the New York trial is over.

The trial is likely to take about six weeks.

In a blistering court filing, Smith accused Trump of taking advantage of his packed court schedule to avoid going to trial.

Trump, meanwhile, has complained that the multiple cases brought against him are the product of a “witch hunt.”

“Trump elected to engage the same counsel of record in multiple serious criminal matters, and his counsel agreed to the multiple engagements,” Smith said.

“Having made such decisions, they should not be allowed to use their overlapping engagements to perpetually delay trial in this case.

“This must stop,” Smith snapped.

Smith has regularly accused Trump of trying to avoid trial with a delay strategy.

In turn, Trump says Smith is on a mission to interfere in the 2024 election.

Trump has been charged with 34 felonies for “falsifying business records” in the “hush money” case.

George Soros-funded Democrat prosecutor Alvin Bragg, who brought the “hush money” case, has been scrutinized over his unusual legal theory.

The Manhattan district attorney’s case is predicated on a mysterious underlying crime that Bragg has yet to identify.

The “hush money” case is generally seen as the least serious of the four criminal cases Trump is facing.

It is currently the only case that is certain to reach a verdict before the presidential election in November.

Judge Cannon has faced furious media backlash and accusations of slow-walking the complex classified documents case.

So far, the case does not have a firm trial date.

It sounds like Smith’s real problem is that Democrats got carried away with charging Trump in so many different cases.

Smith is clearly desperate to see his politically motivated case brought to trial in the run-up to the critical election.

The Democrats can hardly complain that Trump is now doing whatever he can to turn a very difficult and unfair situation to his advantage.
