Against Immunity for Trump – WSJ

1 min read

The U.S. Supreme Court last week denied special counsel Jack Smith’s petition to consider Donald Trump’s immunity claims on an expedited basis. It may not matter. The lower courts are moving quickly, and Mr. Trump could still face a trial by spring.

What’s undisputed in the case is that on Jan. 6, 2021, then-President Trump sought to interfere with the counting of the electoral votes by pressing the vice president to set aside some votes for Joe Biden from states that Mr. Trump disputed. If his plan hadn’t been foiled by the courage of Mike Pence, the U.S. would have descended into an unprecedented constitutional crisis.
