In a bid to overturn the results of the 2020 election, former US President Donald Trump has filed an appeal to the Supreme Court challenging a lower court ruling that he does not have immunity from prosecution. The D.C. Court of Appeals made the decision on February 6, stating that any immunity in force during the presidency does not provide protection from criminal prosecution in the future.
The American media is closely watching as nine Supreme Court judges, three of whom were appointed by Trump during his tenure as president, will decide on the issue of immunity. The decision on this matter will have significant implications for Trump and his legal team as they continue their efforts to challenge the election results.
Trump has been adamant about his claim of immunity from prosecution, arguing that he was entitled to it as a sitting president under federal law. However, the lower court ruling suggests that this argument may not hold water in light of recent legal precedents and case law.
As the appeal process moves forward, it remains to be seen how the Supreme Court will rule on this highly controversial issue. Whatever happens, one thing is clear: this battle for justice will continue to dominate headlines and shape public discourse in the months and years to come.
