A court order today set Aug. 14 as the initial trial date for former President Donald Trump in his Florida documents case, where he faces a 37-count indictment for keeping classified records and blocking justice.

The Justice Department’s special counsel, Jack Smith, vowed a quick trial, but legal experts say it could be delayed by issues with classified evidence, Trump’s lawyers’ objections, and the judge’s scheduling decisions.

A court filing said a US judge yesterday barred Trump’s lawyers from sharing evidence in the case involving classified records with the media or the public.

The order by US Magistrate Judge Bruce Reinhart also limited Trump’s access to the materials.
