Trump lawyer abandons absolute immunity argument at Supreme Court

Former President Donald Trump is seeking absolute immunity in his federal election interference case, but his lawyer, D. John Sauer, acknowledged during arguments at the Supreme Court that not all allegations in the indictment involve official acts. The justices questioned whether specific claims in the indictment qualified as official acts, with Sauer agreeing that some actions were private and could be prosecuted. The case may be sent back to lower courts for further review on this issue, potentially delaying a trial before the November election. Experts believe that Trump may not be immune for most of the conduct alleged in the indictment.
