Former President Trump Makes Video Appearance In New York Criminal Case, Trial Date Tentatively Set For Late March

NEW YORK (AP) — Former President Donald Trump made a video appearance Tuesday in his New York criminal case, with the judge tentatively setting a trial date for late March of next year.

The hearing lasted about 15 minutes.

Trump’s video feed was muted most of the hearing, allowing him to confer freely with his lawyer, Todd Blanche, who sat by his side in Florida in front of a backdrop of American flags.

The judge in the case held the hybrid hearing to make sure that the former president is aware of new rules barring him from using evidence to attack witnesses.
