Trump’s attorneys to file at least 10 motions to Judge Cannon

by | Feb 21, 2024

In his classified documents trial, Donald Trump will file at least ten motions on Thursday, including assertions that the raid on his Florida home was unlawful.

The appointment of Special Counsel Jack Smith, the case's chief prosecutor, will also be contested in one of Trumps proposed motions.

Presidential immunity, the Presidential Records Act, selective and vindictive prosecution, due process infractions, prosecutorial misconduct, impermissible pre-indictment delays, the unauthorized raid on Mar-a-Lago, improper attorney-client privilege violations, and the unconstitutional vagueness of U. S. C.§ 793( e) are just a few examples of the pretrial motions Trump's attorney requested permission to file in his request to Cannon on Tuesday.

A hard copy of the February 22 submission will be temporarily filed under seal with the court clerk on February 23. Trump's lawyers intend to submit them all as a consolidated brief via email on the evening of February 22, 2024. The brief states that President Trump respectfully requests permission to file a single, consolidated brief in support of his pretrial motions, not to exceed the 200 pages in aggregate, for the sake of efficiency and to avoid requiring separate filings for each motion.

On the evening of February 22, they will also submit a redacted version of the consolidated brief to the public docket.

Due to the highly confidential documents being discussed in the case, the public version will be censored.

Waltine Nauta and Carlos De Oliveira, two of Trump's co-defendants, plan to file additional pretrial motions in separate briefs, according to Trump’s attorney.
