Supreme Court Agrees To Hear Trump Presidential Immunity Appeal


On Wednesday The Supreme Court agreed to take up the case in an order that will keep Trump’s Jan. 6 criminal trial proceedings on hold.

In a one-page order Wednesday, the court set an expedited schedule to hear the immunity issue, with oral arguments to be set during the week of April 22. In the meantime, proceedings in the trial court will remain frozen.

There was no noted dissent or other explanation of the high court’s action.

If the court rules on the matter quickly after the arguments and rejects Trump’s immunity claim, it may permit a trial on the election-related charges to occur later this summer or fall.

Trump had previously urged the Supreme Court to delay the federal election subversion criminal trial as he appealed a ruling that he does not have immunity from the charges.

Special counsel Jack Smith had asked the Supreme Court to reject Trump’s request to delay the trial over his appeal.

Trump’s legal team has argued that the former president should have presidential immunity from four federal felony charges he is facing in Smith’s election interference case against him. Trump has pleaded not guilty.

Trump thanked the Supreme Court Wednesday for agreeing to weigh whether he can be criminally prosecuted for efforts to overturn the 2020 election.

“Legal Scholars are extremely thankful for the Supreme Court’s Decision today to take up Presidential Immunity.”

“Without Presidential Immunity, a President will not be able to properly function, or make decisions, in the best interest of the United States of America,” Trump wrote on Truth Social.

“Presidents will always be concerned, and even paralyzed, by the prospect of wrongful prosecution and retaliation after they leave office. This could actually lead to the extortion and blackmail of a President,” he added.
