The Supreme Court hears Trump’s presidential immunity lawsuit outside

The former president believes that he cannot be accused of interfering in the elections because he was still in office at the time of the storming of the Capitol building on January 6, 2021, and therefore he said that he enjoys presidential immunity. In December, a judge ruled that he could indeed be prosecuted, and in February, three judges on the federal appeals court in Washington, D.C., reached the same conclusion.

Trump’s lawyers then headed to the Supreme Court, trying to delay the case or pursue their case. The court has now announced that it will investigate “whether and to what extent the former president enjoys presidential immunity from criminal prosecution.” A hearing on the matter is scheduled for the end of April. After that, it will likely take several weeks before the court makes its decision.

The Supreme Court’s decision will determine whether or not Trump will be tried for trying to influence the outcome of the election after his defeat to Democrat Joe Biden. This trial would normally start on March 4, but investigating judge Tanya Chutkan decided to postpone it for the time being to May 20, but this may now be postponed even further.

Trump is the most likely candidate to become the Republican Party’s nominee in this year’s presidential elections. The 77-year-old denies the accusations against him as an attempt by his political opponents to keep him off the ballot.
