The US Supreme Court has agreed to hear Donald Trump's argument that US Presidents are immune from criminal prosecution. The order said the case will be heard the week of April 22. The Court's decision means the prosecution of Trump remains on hold in the DC case.

Man, can you imagine if Trump beats Biden and gets to add another seat or two to SCOTUS? Any maybe even replacing elderly members like Clarence Thomas? Sotomayor has flatly said she is exhausted with this job....

SCOTUS could have 5 or 6 Trump nominated judges on the bench by 2028.

The bell you are hearing in the distance is the death knell of our democracy.

One road to keeping ------- (the fraud and sexual predator) from office has been well and nigh blocked by the Supremely Corrupt Court.

We now have to rely on the electorate which includes a college that makes most people's votes moot and a system that Republicans have had 4 years to fix.

no, the future is not looking bright.

By January 1, 2026, ------- (the sexual predator and fraud) will begin enforcing the Comstock Act, making, abortion de facto illegal from coast to coast. And porn for that matter. I can envision a world where someone like Speaker Johnson shuts down porn sites using the Comstock Act.

This is what happens when people like Garland are given power. People like Garland will point fingers at others for the failing of our nation.

Biden will say vote harder. But he didn't replace Garland.

If you are not afraid of the radical, insane white christian nationalists who are coming to power, you are one of them.

The Supreme Court Just Gave Trump Exactly What He Wanted

In a stunning move, the justices all but guaranteed that the former president will evade trial before November.

#5 - Why does it matter when he faces trial, so long as the trial is moving forward? Unless of course you're hoping to manipulate the election with the courts.

Treasonous ----.

If Trump wins his argument then Biden can have Trump killed as well as anyone who raises and objection.

"Unless of course you're hoping to manipulate the election with the courts."

What a riot.

Trump is obviously trying to manipulate the courts with the election.

Sure! It was Trump that waited 3 years to file a slew of criminal / civil cases the same year and election cycle begins :)

This is BS. This case does not need all that time to decide. The Supreme Court is obviously dragging its feet for Trumpy.

Trump does not have any blanket immunity for any crimes he may have committed. Obviously. What he does have are lawyers that know how to delay justice. Delay delay delay. Because every day matters now.

We all know what will happen if Trumpy somehow manages to eke out a win.

There will be no justice.

Liar.

Net York Fraud Case: Filed Fall of 2022

Hush Money Case: Filed March, 2023

Mar-a-Lago Documents Case: Filed June, 2023

Georgia Election Subversion: Filed August, 2023

DOJ Election Subversion Case: Grand Jury Indictment on August 1, 2023

Because a Defendant has a right to a speedy trial, prosecutors lined up the evidence beforehand so Trump couldn't demand a speedy trial and prevent deep investigation into the evidence.

Where did you get your law degree again?

Also "Do you really swallow your own ----?"

Sorry, but I have blanket immunity for my actions while President. The Supreme Court said so. Now get off of my porch...

Well, the Supremes did take one look at the double jeopardy argument and threw it in the trash can.

So there's that. Make of it what you will.

@#13 ... Because a Defendant has a right to a speedy trial ...

imo, it is not just the defendant who has a right to a speedy trial, but also the public.

The public has a right to know whether or not the charges presented are valid. Or not.

A speedy trial is to the benefit of all involved.

Yup.


But their delay factor in the issue the want to discuss does seem to raise questions.

I wasn't trying to insinuate that was an arbiter of things to come. Only at least they recognized it was in the hopper.

I always expect the worst from this Supreme Court so it's a rare occasion when I'm disappointed.

@#18 ... wasn't trying to insinuate ...

Apologies if an insinuation was projected. None was intended.

I just wanted to agree with your comment, but in my own odd way. :)

Yeah, SCOTUS, as your comment notes, tossed out fmr Pres Trump's double jeopardy argument.

That was quite significant.

I mean, they didn't even waste any time on it.

It is the delay that SCOTUS has now entered into the equation that concerns me.

History has shown that SCOTUS can act quickly when they want to.

So, why doesn't Chief Justice Roberts want to act quickly on this decision?

I'm given to understand that the Supremes don't consider "immunity" a simple yes or no decision, unlike ourself. They seem to think that there may be some special circumstances where immunity could (maybe, might) apply and others where it may not apply. In other words, they want time to dissect the baby.

Whether their specificity is an excuse or genuine, I can't say. But I can certainly understand the need to be mindful of what effect groundbreaking decisions, especially blanket decisions, have on future generations of presidents.

That said, I'm being very generous here with my opinion of this Supreme Court. I have no faith in their moral compass whatsoever. Not as long as Clarence Thomas is allowed to participate.

Personally, I think they're stalling.

Yeah, that aspect is evident in their "alleged" comment.

... Whether their specificity is an excuse or genuine, I can't say. ...

Back in another thread I asked whether ~this important question needs deliberation.~

I am still on the fence with that aspect.

... my opinion of this Supreme Court. I have no faith in their moral compass whatsoever. Not as long as Clarence Thomas is allowed to participate. ...

Yeah Chief Justice Roberts' Court may go down in history as one that was tainted by money.

To that I ask, why does he seem to allow that?

"To that I ask, why does he seem to allow that?{

That's the $64 thousand dollar question. Why?

Roberts has said in the past (years ago) that he would never allow "his" court to be used as a political football. Yet, here he is, doing just that. I wonder sometimes if, over the years, Roberts has become afflicted with the lofty God Syndrome.

I suppose it's also possible that Roberts may have a skeleton or two in his own closet and the "birds of a feather" are sticking together.

I'd hate to think that about him, but the lack of explanation leads one to speculate.

because the knowledge you, Lamp and I put together doesn't amount to jack squat as to the complexities of the SCOTUS?

I mean it's fun to conjure up conspiracy theories and this place is great for that.
