Supreme Court rules on Trump immunity

  • / Updated:
  • Staff Report 

The Supreme Court ruled that former President Donald Trump can be prosecuted for unofficial acts related to the 2020 election. The decision states presidents are protected for official actions but not for actions taken as candidates.

The 6-3 ruling sends the case back to lower courts to determine if Trump’s actions fall outside his presidential duties. This could delay the trial further.

In a dissent, Justice Sonia Sotomayor warned that this ruling could weaken democracy by shielding presidents from accountability. Trump celebrated the decision, calling it a “BIG WIN FOR OUR CONSTITUTION AND DEMOCRACY.”
