“The defendants have had ample notice that these deadlines would be scheduled and have already had months to complete the work,” Smith wrote in a new court filing. “Counsel should already be prepared to meet these deadlines, and in any event, other commitments are not grounds for postponement.”

Well, yes. That’s the little dance the Trump legal team has cooked up, and it would not surprise me to learn it was coordinated with Aileen Cannon. I have no proof, of course, but there’s one coincidence after another, like the Mafia ties that seem to be everywhere with Trump:

In the meantime, you can tell Jack Smith is just itching to pull the trigger on an 11th circuit mandamus petition — but he only gets one shot, so it has to count.
