On February 6, 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 decision was made in response to a challenge brought by Trump, who is seeking to undo his loss in the election.
The decision by the court stated that “any immunity (…) in force during the presidency does not provide protection from criminal prosecution in the future.” This ruling means that Trump could now face charges for any crimes he committed while he was president, and it could potentially lead to his conviction and removal from office.
Trump has already appealed this decision to the Supreme Court, hoping that it will overturn it and clear his name. However, it is unclear whether the Supreme Court will agree with Trump’s argument or if it will uphold the decision of the lower court.
One thing is certain, though: this case will continue to be closely watched by American media and political observers alike. As they await a ruling from the Supreme Court, many are wondering what this decision could mean for Trump’s legacy and future prospects.
