Washington: Former US President Donald trump returned to America Supreme Court On Monday there were calls to stay an appeals court ruling that said he could be criminally prosecuted for his efforts to overturn the law. 2020 election results,
In a presentation that began with the words, “This application is déjà vu all over again,” Trump's lawyers argued that if the president could be criminally charged for actions taken while in office, ” “Such lawsuits will recur and become increasingly common, setting off a destructive cycle of blame and blame.”
“Without immunity criminal The prosecution would “cease the presidency as we know it,” his lawyers said, arguing virtually for an imperial presidency with unrestricted power. Trump supporters have warned that if the appeals court's decision persists (and Trump returns to power), arguing that presidents cannot be protected from criminal prosecution This could result in retaliatory politics, such as President Biden's attempts to overrule issues such as allowing porous borders, which they say border on criminal negligence.
In Monday's application, Trump's lawyers argued that he should be able to appeal the decision first to the full D.C. Circuit Appeals Court and then to the Supreme Court if necessary. The full D.C. Circuit will take the case before Appeals Judge Sri Srinivasan and 14 other judges.
It was the second time in a week that Trump approached the Supreme Court in a 6-3 vote in favor of conservatives, seeking intervention to further his political future. In a separate case last week, the President sought court intervention to overturn Colorado's top court ruling that he could be removed from the ballot in the state on grounds of insurrection. Oral arguments in the case indicate that the Supreme Court is inclined to overturn the decision.
Trump also faces two other immediate legal challenges. One in Florida – where he was present in court while his lawyers went to the Supreme Court – where he faced federal charges of mishandling classified documents and obstructing government efforts to retrieve them. And another in Georgia, where he faces misconduct allegations against a state prosecutor who implicated him in alleged efforts to overturn the 2020 election results there. Although these cases are keeping Trump away from the campaign to some extent, they also serve to keep him in the headlines as he presents himself as a victim of political witch-hunts.
