Federal Judge Sets Trump’s Classified Documents Trial for May 2024

Federal Judge Aileen Cannon announced on July 21 that Donald Trump will be tried for mishandling classified documents beginning on May 20, 2024, in Florida. Special Prosecutor Jack Smith indicted Trump on 37 felony counts on June 9, so the trial will take place nearly a year after the indictment.

Trump pled “not guilty” to the charges, and a conviction is not certain. But scheduling the trial for just before the Republican National Convention could influence the primaries.

Political persecution: Cannon is a conservative member of the Federalist Society who was appointed by Donald Trump. Smith is a supporter of Barack Obama; his wife, Katy Chevigny, donated to both the Obama and Biden campaigns. Smith’s efforts to prosecute Trump for taking classified documents home (something Obama and Joe Biden have also done) are a political attack on the most likely Republican candidate in the next election.

Prophecy says: In his article “What Will Happen After Trump Regains Power,” Trumpet editor in chief Gerald Flurry explained that Donald Trump was the legitimate winner of the 2020 presidential election. He further said that the Bible prophesies Trump’s return to power, yet he “will have to fight for it. It doesn’t have to be military action, but it certainly could.”

This forecast is based on a prophecy in 2 Kings 14:26-28, which says an end-time Jeroboam will have to war to recover something stolen from him. The endless investigations into Donald Trump show the ferocity of this political war.
