A federal judge, Aileen Cannon, has ruled against former President Donald Trump’s request to dismiss several charges in his ongoing classified documents case. Trump’s lawyers had aimed to get rid of over six of the 41 charges, which claim Trump unlawfully kept classified documents from his time in office and tried to hide them from the government.

The charges in question included obstruction and making false statements. However, Judge Cannon stated that the issues raised by Trump’s defense weren’t enough to dismiss the charges. She explained that even if there were some confusion, the issues should be dealt with during the trial, and the jury would be given clear instructions and proper verdict forms.

Judge Cannon agreed to remove a paragraph from the indictment, which Trump’s lawyers argued was unfair and unnecessary for the main charges.

This ruling is one of several in which Judge Cannon has refused to dismiss the case. One previous attempt by Trump’s team argued that the Presidential Records Act allowed him to keep the documents and classify them as personal records, which the judge denied.

This recent motion is just one of many pretrial disputes slowing the case. More arguments are set for later this month as the legal process continues.
