The Biden Regime is pushing for a speedy trial of former President Donald Trump in the classified documents case, as his aide Walt Nauta awaits pretrial hearing.
Despite requests from Nauta’s lawyer Stanley Woodward to delay proceedings, the Justice Department has opposed any such request.
Nauta was charged alongside President Trump in Jack Smith’s classified documents case and pleaded not guilty on Thursday.
The charges include conspiracy, withholding a document or record, corruptly concealing a document or record, concealing a document in a federal investigation and scheme to conceal. A separate charge of false statements and misrepresentations was also brought against Nauta alone.

Woodward has accused DOJ prosecutor Jay Bratt of prosecutorial misconduct for attempting to bribe him into forcing his client to testify against Trump by bringing up Woodward’s application for judgeship and suggesting it would be blocked unless he did so.
Republicans across the nation are questioning the merits of this rushed trial before the 2024 election – with some accusing Biden of trying to politically weaponize justice ahead of crucial mid-term elections.
Critics have raised concerns about whether due process is being followed as requested delays were denied by the Justice Department despite valid reasoning provided by Woodward regarding his ongoing DC trial and lack of interim clearance.
The Biden regime’s push for an expedited trial raises suspicions about ulterior motives beyond upholding justice – leaving many wondering if political motivations are driving their decision-making rather than legal ones.
