Will Immunity Ruling Impact Fani Willis RICO Case Against Trump

The heart of the Georgia case is a phone call that Trump had with Georgia’s Secretary of State, where Trump asked him to “find” 11,000 votes to flip the election.

This all comes down to the interpretation of the phone call if the immunity ruling by the Supreme Court will impact this case.

While I don’t believe Trump will be, or I should say, should be, found guilty in the case, I don’t believe the immunity will apply here.

How Do You Take It

When Trump made that phone call, there were two different interpretations given, depending upon which side.

Democrats and liberals immediately stated that Trump wanted Secretary Raffensperger to literally flip votes so that Trump would win the state.

I have never believed that to be the case. Call me naïve, but I always believed Trump was asking him to investigate the election to see if there were enough votes to flip the state back to Trump.

Again, maybe I am being naïve, but if Trump was literally telling him to change ballots, well, yes, that would be illegal, but again, I do not believe that was the case.

The interpretation of that call is extremely important here because if you believe Trump was ordering an investigation into the election, that would more than likely be considered the act of a president protecting election integrity, therefore, the immunity kicks in.

However, if you believe Trump was ordering the actual flipping of confirmed ballots, that is clearly an illegal act that would be considered outside the purview of a president’s official duties, and it would be prosecutable.

Former federal prosecutor Michael McAuliffe addressed this issue, stating, "To the extent that the Georgia state RICO case relies on acts that are core presidential duties, or at a minimum official, then the new immunity case would present a new barrier to the government's prosecution.

"Given the narrative overlap between the federal January 6th case and the Georgia state case, the state judge will likely follow the federal judge's determinations."

Needless to say, this is now a legal mess, and it is going to take months, if not years, to wade through it all, which is just fine with Trump.

This more or less confirms my previous premise that there is simply no way any of these cases see the inside of a courtroom before the general election, and that is all Trump is really worried about right now.
