Appeals Court Affirms the Denial of Trump’s Presidential Immunity Claim in D.C. Election Interference Case

2024-02-06 07:26:54

A three-judge panel of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit rejected former President Donald Trump’s claim that he has presidential immunity in the D.C. election interference case.

The vote was 3-0. Not shocking at all:

Former President Trump moved to dismiss the Indictment and the district court denied his motion. Today, we affirm the denial. For the purpose of this criminal case, former President Trump has become citizen Trump, with all of the defenses of any other criminal defendant. But any executive immunity that may have protected him while he served as President no longer protects him against this prosecution.

The decision does not mean Trump’s trial will start on March 4. Trump will likely appeal the decision, taking it to the Supreme Court.
