Supreme Court to consider Trump’s immunity claim in potential 2020 election prosecution

The Supreme Court will decide if Trump has immunity from federal prosecution for actions during his presidency, affecting a case by special counsel Jack Smith. If Trump wins, the case ends, but if Smith wins, it will proceed. The case questions if ex-presidents have immunity from criminal charges for actions in office. Trump’s legal team argues his actions were official and immune. Smith argues Trump subverted democracy. The Court rejected a request to let the lower court decision stand. Trump’s claim of absolute immunity could impact future presidents. The Supreme Court is expected to rule by June.
