Axios reported: "Judge Aileen Cannon on Tuesday indefinitely postponed former President Trump's classified documents trial date in Florida, citing a number of outstanding pre-trial motions.

The ruling makes it unlikely that the classified documents trial will end before the 2024 presidential election, where Trump is the presumptive GOP presidential nominee.

Cannon's Tuesday ruling is a win for Trump, who has successfully pushed for delays in multiple criminal trials ahead of November's election.

Trump pleaded not guilty last June to the historic 37-count indictment related to his handling of classified documents after he left the White House.

Cannon wrote in the Tuesday filing that the trial start date, originally scheduled for May 20, is delayed so she can resolve pre-trial motions in the case.

Cannon said that the "finalization of a trial date at this juncture ... would be imprudent and inconsistent with the Court's duty to fully and fairly consider the various pending pre-trial motions before the Court."

Cannon, a Trump-appointed judge, has come under mounting scrutiny over her handling of the case, with critics saying that she is intentionally slow-walking the case.

Cannon's Tuesday ruling increases the odds that Trump's ongoing New York criminal trial is the only one that concludes before the November election. He is charged with 34 counts of falsifying business records in the first degree in the New York case.
