Special Counsel Jack Smith Urges Supreme Court to Quickly Decide Trump's Immunity Appeal
  • 2 months ago
The Department of Justice's special counsel investigating Donald Trump has asked the Supreme Court to take up and decide quickly on Trump's appeal claiming he has immunity from prosecution. In a filing, the special counsel said the legal issues are important, and delays could interfere with ongoing investigations and potential prosecutions. They asked the Supreme Court to hear the case in its current term, which ends in June, and issue a decision by the summer. The Supreme Court may either dismiss the emergency appeal, allowing Judge Chutkan to resume the trial in Washington's federal court, or they could prolong the hold to consider arguments regarding presidential immunity.
