U.S. Election: Supreme Court Urged To Reject Trump’s Immunity Claim

Jack Smith, the special counsel prosecuting Donald Trump on charges of plotting to overturn the 2020 election, urged the Supreme Court to reject Trump’s argument that he is immune from prosecution for actions he took as president. Lower courts have so far rejected Trump’s claim.

The case, which Smith asked the court to address quickly, will be argued on April 25. If it takes a long time to resolve, Trump’s trial could be delayed until after the election, and if he wins the White House, he could order the Justice Department to drop the charges.

In another news, An appeals court rejected Trump’s latest attempt to delay his Manhattan criminal trial, which is scheduled to begin on April 15.
