Supreme Court to hear Trump immunity claim

Like Love Haha Wow Sad Angry

The Supreme Court will decide if ex-President Donald Trump is immune from being prosecuted on charges of trying to overturn the 2020 election.

The 6-3 conservative majority court said it will hear arguments in April. A ruling could come by the end of June.
A US Court of Appeals panel has already rejected Mr Trump’s argument.
He had claimed in the landmark legal case that he was immune from all criminal charges for acts that he said fell within his duties as president.
The Supreme Court taking the case is being seen as a victory for the former president as it increases the chances that his trial may not happen before November’s presidential election.

On his Truth Social site, Mr Trump welcomed Wednesday’s decision and contended that without immunity presidents could be “paralyzed, by the prospect of wrongful prosecution and retaliation after they leave office”.
