The U.S. Supreme Court Trump Immunity Hearing was criticized for conservative justices except for Justice Amy Coney Barrett seeming to dismiss the severity of the Jan 6 insurrection. The Trump team argued that the coup and violence could be considered ‘official acts’ and therefore immune from prosecution. Former Deputy Solicitor General Neal Katyal remains hopeful for a 5-4 ruling against Trump, with Chief Justice Roberts as a deciding vote. However, there is concern that the court may send the case back to lower courts, delaying justice and potentially benefiting Trump. This highlights a potential threat to democracy.
