In a bid to challenge the results of the 2020 election, former US President Donald Trump has filed an appeal to the Supreme Court against a lower court ruling that he does not have immunity from prosecution. The D.C. Court of Appeals made this decision on February 6th, stating that any immunity in force during the presidency does not provide protection from criminal prosecution in the future.
This legal battle comes amid ongoing controversies surrounding the 2020 election and allegations of voter fraud, which have been widely discredited. Despite this, Trump and his legal team continue to contest the validity of the election results and challenge his electoral defeat. This latest move is part of a broader strategy to discredit the election outcome and highlight alleged irregularities in the electoral process.
The appeal to the Supreme Court signifies a continued effort by Trump and his legal team to overturn the results of the 2020 election. The American media notes that this decision will be made by nine Supreme Court judges, three of whom were appointed by Trump during his tenure as president. The outcome of this legal battle will be closely watched as it could have far-reaching implications for American democracy and politics.
