Live updates on the Supreme Court case regarding Trump’s immunity

The Supreme Court is considering whether a former president, in this case, Donald Trump, can be prosecuted for actions taken while in office. Trump’s lawyers argue that presidential immunity is necessary for a president to function effectively, while prosecutors argue that lack of past criminal charges against former presidents shows the unprecedented nature of Trump’s alleged actions. The court is discussing where to draw the line on immunity for official acts, with justices like Roberts and Kagan raising questions about whether charges alone indicate presidents can be prosecuted and whether presidents should be impeached before facing prosecution. The case involves Trump’s efforts to overturn the 2020 election results. Both sides point to past presidential actions to support their arguments, and the court may have multiple paths to decide the case.
