US Supreme Court Holds Trump Has Immunity from Prosecution for “Official Acts”

In a landmark decision, the United States Supreme Court on Monday ruled that former President Donald J. Trump was entitled to absolute immunity from criminal prosecution for acts within his exclusive constitutional authority during his presidency. The court further stated that he was entitled to “at least presumptive immunity” from prosecution for all his “official acts”. It clarified that there was no immunity for unofficial acts. The case has now been returned to the lower court, which will decide whether the actions Trump took were in an official capacity or not. (Trump V. United States)
