Stop Delaying Trump's Criminal Trials!

Disgraced former president Donald Trump is facing four criminal prosecutions (including 88 felony counts) for crimes he committed while in office. His strategy is likely to delay as long as he can—keeping pertinent information from voters and securing a win in November—and then claiming immunity or pardoning himself. And right now, it's working, with three out of four of his trials postponed INDEFINITELY. 

It’s Trump v. United States, and we, the people, have a constitutional right to a speedy trial. Demand that the judges overseeing Trump’s cases protect the rights of Americans and STOP THE DELAYS.

Why is this important?

Three out of the four of Trump's criminal cases are postponed—indefinitely. 

Trump-appointed judge Aileen Canon has been dragging her feet in Trump’s classified documents case in Florida, and she has failed to reschedule the trial that was originally to take place in May 2024.

The right-wing-packed Supreme Court has the federal trial accusing Trump of trying to overturn the election results in 2020 tied up, refusing to rapidly review Trump’s bogus and corrupt appeal for "absolute immunity" of all crimes he committed while in office. 

And finally, Trump's crusade to disqualify the prosecutor in his Georgia case, also related to overturning the 2020 election results, has indefinitely delayed the trial as the Georgia Court of Appeals debates whether to allow Fulton County District Attorney Fani T. Willis to oversee the charges brought against Trump and 14 other co-conspirators. 

For far too long, there have been different sets of justice in our legal system—one for the wealthy and powerful, and another for the rest of us. And this hypocrisy has burdened Indigenous, Black, Latinx, and Asian American communities disproportionately. And now, this double standard is on full display, as someone who should be held to the highest ethical and legal standards in our country manipulates our legal system to evade accountability and hide information from the public. 

Trump’s crimes were crimes committed against our democracy and against the American people. We have a right to a speedy trial. Sign the petition to urge our legal and justice system to do its job and STOP THE DELAYS!
