“In light of Defendant Donald John Trump’s other criminal and civil matters pending in the courts of our sister sovereigns, the State of Georgia proposes certain deadlines that do not conflict with these other courts’ already-scheduled hearings and trial dates,” the motion reads.

Trump was indicted in Washington, D.C., in August for charges related to Jan. 6, and in Florida in June for charges related to the alleged mishandling of federal documents. He was indicted in New York in March for an alleged hush money scheme to pay off porn star Stormy Daniels.

Trump did not immediately respond to the Daily Caller News Foundation’s request for comment.
