On February 6th, the D.C. Court of Appeals ruled that former US President Donald Trump does not have immunity from prosecution in an attempt to overturn the results of the 2020 election. The court’s decision stated that “any immunity (…) in force during the presidency does not provide protection from criminal prosecution in the future.”
Trump has now appealed this ruling to the Supreme Court, hoping to challenge the decision on the issue of immunity. The American media is closely watching as nine Supreme Court judges, three of whom were appointed by Trump during his tenure as president, will make a final decision on this matter.
This appeal marks a significant moment in American politics, as it could potentially set a precedent for future presidents and their ability to evade criminal prosecution after leaving office. The outcome of this case is likely to have far-reaching implications for democracy and justice in America.
