The experience of Supreme Court conservatives may shape their perspective on Trump’s immunity, NPR reports

After the Supreme Court’s oral argument, it seems unlikely that a trial on charges against Trump will happen before the November election. The conservative justices with Beltway backgrounds expressed concerns about criminal prosecution targeting political opponents. Justice Kavanaugh warned of using conspiracy charges against presidents, citing a previous case as detrimental. Justice Gorsuch questioned possible future misuse of criminal law against political adversaries. Justice Alito emphasized the tough decisions presidents make and expressed concerns about destabilizing democracy with post-presidency prosecutions. Justice Barrett expressed doubts about Trump’s immunity claims, challenging the notion that a president cannot be prosecuted without impeachment.
