“Defendants Chesebro and Powell will be brought together in the trial, but the other 17 defendants will be separated from these two. Further severance payments may follow. “All pretrial deadlines will proceed as scheduled without any stay of proceedings,” said Judge Scott McAfee of the Superior Court of Justice Fulton County wrote in a ruling issued Thursday.
The move came after Mr. Chesebro and Ms. Powell asserted their right to a speedy trial, the judge noted.
This comes as Mr Trump celebrated the “best polls ever” and wrote on Truth Social that they were “rarely shown on television”. With a lead of 50 or 60 points. Just like they don’t like showing our big rally CROWDS, they also don’t like showing our LARGE POLL NUMBERS. We rigged elections and rigged television!”
Meanwhile, Mr Trump celebrated Mitt Romney’s retirement plans in a gloating post in which he called it “fantastic news for America” that the Republican senator would not seek a second term.
What is an accusation? Trump just avoided his fourth
The former president pleaded not guilty on August 31 to a series of 13 charges accusing him of running a criminal enterprise to stay in power at all costs.
“As indicated by my signature below, I hereby waive formal charges and declare myself NOT GUILTY to the charges in this case,” the filing reads.
Now he will not appear at his arraignment, which was scheduled to take place Sept. 6 in Fulton County Court.
The indictment would have been his fourth after a Georgia grand jury on August 14 indicted the ex-president and 18 other defendants on 13 counts related to his alleged efforts to change the outcome of the 2020 election in the state .

But the political divide is wide.
According to The Associated Press-NORC Center for Public Affairs Research poll, 66 percent of Republicans — and just 7 percent of Democrats — are very or extremely concerned about whether Joe Biden has committed wrongdoing regarding his son’s business dealings.
Overall, Democrats are far more cautious about blaming the president at all regarding his son’s business dealings.
“The way I see it, Biden should be held accountable if he did something wrong,” said Pilar DeAvila-Pinsley, 60, a New York Democrat. “But there is no proof of that.”
The poll was conducted just before House Speaker Kevin McCarthy launched a formal impeachment inquiry aimed at tying the president to his son’s business dealings and distracting from the legal jeopardy facing Donald Trump as the two men again fight for the White House. A special counsel appointed by Attorney General Merrick Garland is investigating Hunter Biden’s business dealings after a plea deal on tax and gun charges collapsed.
