Trump Appeals to US Supreme Court to Pause Ruling on Presidential Immunity
  • 2 months ago
Donald Trump formally asked the US Supreme Court to pause a recent appeals court ruling that rejected his claim of presidential immunity for his actions leading up to January 6th, 2021. The Supreme Court will likely ask the special counsel prosecuting Trump, Jack Smith, to file a response to Trump's request. The Court could decide to schedule oral arguments and issue a detailed ruling on Trump's immunity claim, which would delay the trial process further. The Court could grant Trump's request for a pause without arguments, putting the case on hold until his appeal is resolved, which could take months.
