Donald Trump Gets Supreme Court to Accept Immunity Case

Donald Trump just got himself a win in the federal cases he is facing regarding election interference and January 6.

The Supreme Court has agreed to take the case.

At the very least, this means that Trump’s case will continue to be delayed by months.

Serves the Purpose

It is not often that you can consider it a win even if you don’t actually win the court case.

For Donald Trump, the fact his March 4 case is now on hold is a gift from the gods.

Trump’s support goes down considerably if he is convicted of a felony, so had this case started on time, it could have hurt his chances in the primary, but that is clearly not an issue now.

And with the court taking this case, this case could be pushed back until the fall, if not longer.

The Supreme Court took the case per a request by Special Counsel Jack Smith, who was hoping to get this expedited and taken care of immediately.

He will have to wait until April 22 for arguments, then possibly into the summer months for a decision, unless the court decides to release its ruling immediately so the cases can get underway.

At question is if Trump’s actions after the election are immune from prosecution because he was a sitting president.

His attorneys are arguing that presidents should have blanket immunity, but the courts have already stated that presidential immunity only exists for actions taken that fall within the purview of presidential duties.

So, they are going to have to make the argument that Trump’s “Stop the Steal” rally was considered a presidential duty, and while they should be able to make an argument, most legal experts believe that Trump will lose this case.

But, as I noted, even if that happens, the trial will be pushed back, with Trump hoping it will be scheduled after the general election instead of before it.
