5 Key Points from the Landmark Supreme Court Hearings on Trump’s Claim of Immunity

The Supreme Court heard arguments on whether Trump can be criminally prosecuted for actions after losing the 2020 election. Justices debated presidential immunity, using hypothetical scenarios like coups and assassinations. Some acts Trump is accused of were deemed private, not official, potentially opening him up to prosecution. Conservative justices raised concerns about bad faith prosecutions and the risk of prolonged legal battles for future presidents. Justices considered the implications of their ruling for all future presidents, noting the unprecedented nature of Trump’s criminal charges. The decision could have far-reaching consequences for presidential accountability and the rule of law.
