As if Joe Biden’s reelection hopes doing a kabuki dance of massive implosion aren’t enough good news for the presumptive Republican presidential nominee, Saturday brings even more positive reports for Donald Trump– this time on the lawsuit front.

As we wrote a few days back, the case against former President Trump in Manhattan court about business records fraud has been delayed to some currently unknown extent, in the wake of the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision on presidential immunity. My colleague Bob Hoge shared that it could be September or even later, but certainly after the GOP convention in less than two weeks on July 15th:

Reports indicate that the sentencing has been officially postponed, and will now not occur until at least September. This means that it won’t happen before the GOP convention in mid-July where Trump will accept the nomination, so this is a clear win for the former president.

Now, U.S. District Judge Aileen Cannon has pulled the rug out from under the lawfare mavens in the classified documents case in Florida, by agreeing to a request by Trump attorneys to hold up (at least in the short term) a required disclosure that had a deadline fast approaching this week, and put in place a deadline for Special Counsel Jack Smith’s office to reply to a defense motion, among several decisions that affect both parties in the case

via Axios:

The latest: Cannon’s recent order grants a temporary stay on expert disclosures due July 8 and the defense’s reciprocal discovery due July 10.

  • The judge also set a July 18 deadline for special counsel to respond to Trump’s motion to stay and request for supplemental briefing and set a July 21 deadline for both sides to respond.

This is a developing story. RedState will share further updates as they become available.
