The case of Trump v. United States is scheduled for late April 2024. This case revolves around the question of whether former President Donald Trump can be tried on criminal charges for allegedly conspiring to overturn the results of the 2020 election. Trump was indicted in August 2023 on four counts arising from Special Counsel Jack Smith’s investigation into the Jan. 6, 2021, attacks on the U.S. Capitol.
