Opinion: New York understood the need for speed on Trump's immunity claim. Will SCOTUS?

·1 min

There are two ongoing criminal cases related to Donald Trump’s alleged election interference. In one case, Trump is on trial in a Manhattan courtroom for allegedly unlawfully influencing the 2016 presidential election. In the other case, he argues in the United States Supreme Court that absolute presidential immunity prevents his federal indictment in DC for subverting the 2020 election results. The New York courts have quickly dismissed Trump’s immunity claim, while the Supreme Court has delayed its decision. It is crucial for the Supreme Court to reach a prompt decision and prioritize the case to provide clarity and prevent further delays.
