A prosecutor asked a judge to Friday to schedule the Georgia election interference criminal trial of former President Donald Trump and his co-defendants to begin on Aug. 5.

That trial schedule would take into account potential delays in Trump’s other expected criminal trials next year, Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis said in a new court filing.

Trump is charged with the other defendants in Fulton County Superior Court with racketeering and other crimes related to their attempt to reverse his loss in Georgia’s 2020 presidential election to Joe Biden.

Wills in her filing Friday asked Fulton County Judge Scott McAfee to scheduled a final plea hearing date on June 21, at which any remaining defendant in the case would have to enter a guilty plea or go to trial in Fulton County Superior Court.

The DA also asked the judge not to consider any requests by Trump or other defendants to sever their trials from one another until after the final plea date.
