'Speedy trial' promised by special counsel in Trump case may not go so fastBy Sarah N. LynchWASHINGTON (Reuters) - U.S. Special Counsel Jack Smith has said former President Donald Trump will have a "speedy trial" in Miami on a 37-count indictment charging him with willfully retaining classified government records and obstructing justice. Smith's pledge for a speedy trial makes sense because he doesn't want to interfere with the election process, said defense attorney Mark Zaid. The reality is the Trump team will be controlling much of the timing of the litigation." Espionage Act cases like Trump's cases are especially complex because some of the key evidence presented during a public trial is classified. These CIPA procedures will require Trump's defense team to obtain security clearances in order to view classified materials.
