2020 Election: U. S. Supreme Court Splits On Whether Trump Can Be Prosecuted

 



......says, former presidents have some degree of immunity 





The Supreme Court’s conservative majority appeared ready yesterday to rule that former presidents have some degree of immunity from criminal prosecution, which could further delay the criminal case against Donald Trump on charges that he plotted to subvert the 2020 election.


Such a ruling would most likely send the case back to the trial court, ordering it to draw distinctions between official and private conduct. Though there was seeming consensus among the justices that the criminal case could eventually go forward based on Trump’s private actions, the additional proceedings could make it hard to conduct the trial before the 2024 election in November.


If Trump wins the White House, he can order the Justice Department to drop the charges against him.
