Trump is not immune in 2020 election interference case, appeals court rules

The U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia rejected Donald Trump’s broad claim that he is immune from prosecution for alleged criminal acts he committed as president in trying to overturn the 2020 election in a chain of events leading to the January 6th attack on the Capitol. The ruling stated that, “former President Trump has become citizen Trump…any executive immunity that may have protected him while he served as President no  longer protects him against this prosecution.” Trump and his team are expected to appeal to the Supreme Court in an effort to prevent the trial from going ahead as scheduled.
