Trump’s Immunity Claim

The all-important federal criminal proceeding against Trump for his role in the January 6th, 2021, Insurrection has been held up for many weeks because Trump is appealing the ruling of the District Court and Circuit Court of Appeals rejecting his claim of immunity from prosecution for crimes committed while he was president. The American Revolution was fought and our nation was founded on the principle that citizens of the United States should not be ruled by someone who is above the law. Trump’s claim is completely baseless. Yet the Supreme Court is sitting on it, taking its time, increasing every day the chances that Trump will not be tried before the election next November. At its highest level — the Supreme Court of the United States — our justice system has broken down.
