A federal trial has been postponed for a Louisiana private investigator accused of trying to illegally obtain Donald Trump's tax returns during last year's presidential campaign.

Jury selection was scheduled to begin Monday for Jordan Hamlett's federal trial, but a filing from the court says it must be rescheduled due to an "unforeseen conflict with the court." A new trial date wasn't immediately set.
