U.S. Supreme Court agrees to hear Trump presidential immunity claim

The U.S. Supreme Court has agreed to hear former President Donald Trump’s claim of immunity from criminal prosecution as he faces multiple state and federal charges. The court scheduled arguments for the week of April 22, temporarily putting on hold Trump’s trial on charges related to conspiring to overturn the 2020 election. The case questions the extent of a former president’s immunity from criminal prosecution for alleged official acts during their tenure. This case is considered one of the most significant election law cases since the 2000 decision involving the Florida vote recount. A recent appeals court ruling rejected Trump’s claim of immunity, stating it lacked support from precedent, history, or the Constitution’s text and structure.
