US Supreme Court: Trump has absolute immunity

America's highest judicial authority issued a ruling that gives Trump the opportunity to use immunity in the sedition case against Congress.

According to the report of Anna's science and technology news agency policy group, citing Reuters, the Supreme Court of the United States, in a historic decision, voted for the immunity of “Donald Trump” within the framework of the legal powers of the president.

This is the first time that this judicial authority recognizes any immunity of American presidents from prosecution.

Accordingly, by a vote of 6 to 3, the Supreme Court overturned the lower court's decision that Trump was not immune from federal crimes, including attempting to reverse the outcome of the 2020 US election (rebellion against Congress).

According to John Robert, Chief Justice of the Supreme Court, under the structure of the separation of powers, there is an assessment that the nature of presidential power requires that a former president have some immunity for the actions he took during his term of office.

According to the ruling issued by the US Supreme Court, Trump has enjoyed “absolute immunity” to perform his official duties; Therefore, the president cannot be prosecuted due to the exercise of his main powers in the constitution, and at least the assumption of immunity is true for him.

Joe Biden, the current president of the United States, described this sentence as a dangerous procedure; Because in this way, the power of the law to restrain the presidential powers is challenged.

On the other hand, Trump described the Court's ruling as a great victory for the American Constitution and democracy and said: I am proud to be an American.

The court ruling was largely in line with Trump's wishes. However, it is emphasized in this decision that “the president does not enjoy immunity for his unofficial actions and everything the president does is not necessarily an official action”.

The 78-year-old Trump is the first former president of the United States to be prosecuted and even convicted for one of these crimes (lying about tax records to pay hush money to an actor in pornographic films).

However, he is the Republican front-runner in the race against 81-year-old Biden, who will represent the Democratic camp in the 2024 presidential election.
