Legal experts shocked and alarmed by Supreme Court arguments on Trump’s immunity claim

Many legal analysts initially viewed Donald Trump’s claim of presidential immunity from criminal prosecution related to his 2020 election loss as weak. However, during nearly three hours of oral arguments last week, some Supreme Court justices seemed open to limited protection for former presidents from criminal liability for official acts while in office. This shift surprised some observers, as it raised concerns about the possibility of a president committing criminal acts without accountability. The justices grappled with defining the scope of official conduct exempt from prosecution, highlighting the complex challenges in balancing presidential power with accountability. The Supreme Court’s decision, expected in June, could set a new standard for presidential authority.
