Judge mulls delaying Fort Hood jihad murderer's trial, refuses defense request to force prosecutors to provide notes from meetings with Obama

Why did he deny that request? Do those notes contain something that will reveal Obama and the other officials discussing how Hasan's jihadist motivations must never be discussed, and covered up in ever possible way?
"Judge considers delaying Ft. Hood shooting trial," from  AP, April 11 (thanks to Kenneth):
FORT HOOD, Texas (AP) — A military judge on Tuesday said he would consider postponing until October the trial of the Army psychiatrist charged in the deadly Fort Hood shooting rampage.
Maj. Nidal Hasan’s attorneys asked that the trial be delayed from June until October, saying they needed more time to review the large volumes of evidence in the case. The judge, Col. Gregory Gross, previously delayed the court-martial from March until June. It’s unclear when he will decide on the defense’s second request for a postponement.
Hasan is charged with 13 counts of premeditated murder and 32 counts of attempted premeditated murder. He faces the death penalty if convicted in the November 2009 shootings on the Texas Army post....
Gross also denied a defense request to force prosecutors to provide notes from meetings and conversations with President Barack Obama, the defense secretary and other high-ranking government officials after the Nov. 5, 2009, shootings. Defense attorneys have said they want to determine if anything was discussed that may have unlawfully influenced Hasan’s chain of command to prosecute him....
Unlawfully influenced them to prosecute him? Was it ever a possibility that he would not be prosecuted for murdering 13 Americans in an Islamic jihad attack?
