The United States is requesting an expedited review by the Supreme Court regarding former President Trump’s assertion of immunity from prosecution.

The US special counsel, prosecuting Donald Trump on federal charges related to his attempts to overturn the 2020 election, has urged the Supreme Court to expedite a review of the former president’s claim of immunity from prosecution. Despite Trump’s legal team arguing that former presidents are shielded from criminal charges tied to their official duties, the judge rejected this stance. The unusual move by Special Counsel Jack Smith seeks swift intervention from the Supreme Court, emphasizing the case’s significance ahead of the November 5 election. Trump’s potential re-election could lead to a self-pardon for federal offenses, further underscoring the urgency of the matter. The appeal has temporarily halted the scheduled trial set for March 4.
