On February 6, the D.C. Court of Appeals ruled that former US President Donald Trump does not have immunity from prosecution in an attempt to overturn the results of the 2020 election. The court’s decision stated that “any immunity (…) in force during the presidency does not provide protection from criminal prosecution in the future.” This ruling has sparked a legal battle, with Trump appealing to the Supreme Court.
The appeal by Trump is being closely watched by American media, who are eager to see how the nine Supreme Court judges will rule on the issue of immunity. Three of these judges were appointed by Trump during his tenure as president, which could have a significant impact on the outcome of this case.
Trump has argued that he had immunity from prosecution while he was president and that he should not be held accountable for any wrongdoing related to the 2020 election. However, this argument has been rejected by both lower courts and now faces a review by the Supreme Court.
This legal battle is likely to continue for some time, with both sides fighting for their rights and beliefs. The outcome of this case could set a precedent for future presidents and their relationship with the law, making it an important one to watch closely.
