Trump Asks SCOTUS to Intervene in Immunity Case as Federal Election Subversion Case Looms

HeadlineFeb 13, 2024

Donald Trump has asked the Supreme Court to intervene and halt a D.C. appeals court ruling that rejected Trump’s claims of total immunity for his actions following his 2020 election loss. Special counsel Jack Smith has charged Trump on four counts over his efforts to overturn the election. Two lower courts have already rejected Trump’s presidential immunity argument. Trump’s lawyers are also asking the D.C. court to reconsider his claim with its full panel of judges.

In related news, the judge overseeing Georgia’s election subversion case against Trump said Monday District Attorney Fani Willis could be disqualified over her past romantic relationship with the lead prosecutor on the case, if she benefited financially. A hearing on the matter has been scheduled for Thursday.
