Judges Rule Trump Is Not Immune to Prosecution in 2020 Election Interference Case

Date:

Donald Trump does not have presidential immunity from prosecution on charges related to his alleged efforts to overturn his 2020 election loss. A three-judge federal appeals court made the decision in the criminal election interference case being prosecuted by special counsel Jack Smith.

Trump is now expected to ask the Supreme Court to overturn the ruling. Trump’s legal team argues he’s immune from prosecution because the charges relate to official acts performed while he was president. The former president is charged with four criminal counts, including conspiracy to defraud the U.S. and conspiracy to obstruct an official proceeding.

Here’s MSNBC legal analyst Lisa Rubin on the timing of the case: “They have a lot of time if they choose to try and run out the clock and then the onus would be on special counsel Jack Smith and his team to try and expedite things. The further out he can push this trial into the election season or potentially beyond, that advantages him.”
