Unconvinced Mar-a-Lago judge says it’s ‘difficult to see’ how Trump’s nod to George Washington can make Espionage Act indictment vanish

While things have been going on for a while in the Southern District of Florida, the clock ticking down on the mandatory start date of the Mar-a-Lago documents trial has not moved a single day in over a year.

Under longstanding federal law, the Speedy Trial Act generally sets a 70-day window for a trial date to commence from the time an indictment is filed — with numerous exceptions and caveats.

Under the court orders established by U.S. District Judge Aileen Cannon to govern the case, and under the court’s own local rules, the government is required to file intermittent Speedy Trial reports.

On Tuesday afternoon, special counsel Jack Smith filed his 17th such report — noting “that 70 days remain on the Speedy Trial clock.”
