Trump’s hush money sentencing postponed after Supreme Court immunity ruling

Former U.S. President Donald Trump’s sentencing in the hush money case has been postponed from July 11 to September 18 following a Supreme Court ruling on presidential immunity. Trump’s attorneys sought to set aside the jury’s May 30 verdict based on this decision, arguing it violated presidential immunity and posed risks to the Executive Branch. Prosecutors from the Manhattan District Attorney’s Office did not oppose the delay but disagreed with Trump’s legal arguments. Judge Juan M. Merchan will rule on Trump’s motion by September 6, with sentencing scheduled for September 18 if upheld. The case involves Trump’s efforts to conceal hush money payments to a porn star in 2016.
