USA, Trump cancels press conference about trial in Georgia – past hour

Donald Trump has canceled the press conference he announced next Monday at his residence in Bedminster to present what he called an “indisputable” report on the “rigged and stolen elections in Georgia in 2020. Lawyers would prefer to present it in an official legal document while we fight to dismiss a regulation This is a shameful accusation,” the former US president explained on his social network, Truth. “So the press conference is no longer necessary,” he added.

Trump’s lawyers asked the judge to reject the attorney general’s proposal to start the Capitol assault trial in January 2024 and instead postpone it to April 2026, nearly a year and a half after the US presidential election. The reason has to do with the huge amount of documents to be scanned, which is 8.5 terabytes of material for a total of more than 11.5 million pages. Attorney Gregory Singer included a chart showing how 11.5 million pages of documents stacked on top of each other would result in a “paper tower extending nearly 5,000 feet into the sky, eight times taller than the stacked Washington Monument, saving nearly a million pages.” “Even assuming we could start reviewing documents today,” Singer wrote, “we would need to move forward an average of 99,762 pages per day to finish initial government production of documents by the proposed jury selection date.” He added, “This is like all of Tolstoy’s ‘War and Peace’, top to bottom, 78 times a day, every day, from now until jury selection.
