U.S President Trump’s immunity claim most likely to be rejected by Supreme Court




The supreme court heard several arguments regarding the American President, Mr. Donald Trump’s tax returns on Tuesday. It is most likely to reject President Trump’s claim of being immune from criminal investigation while in office.

Elena Kagan, like Sotomayor an Obama appointee, told Trump’s lawyer Jay Sekulow, “fundamental precept of our constitutional order is that the President is not above the law”.

The New York prosecutors, Lawyers from Trump’s Justice Department and Attorney’s representing the President himself were presenting their arguments by telephone for a duration of three hours and 22 minutes. The world listened in.

The court, which includes six justices at the age of 65 or older have been discussing the matter remotely for the second week due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Trump has not released his tax returns since the 2016 election despite his promise to do so. President Trump seems to be the first one to do this, say facts. Every president since Nixon, who was elected in 1968, had released tax information even though there is no legal compunction to do it.

Democrats in Congress are attempting to figure out whether Trump is breaking ethical laws and constitutional safeguards against profiting from the presidency.

Cyrus Vance Jr, The New York prosecutor, wants to find out if hush money payments were made to women who claimed affairs with Trump involved illegal business practices.

Trump’s lawyers are contending that he should not be so constrained by Congress and cannot be prosecuted while in office as it gets in the way of his Presidential duties, this is supported by the justice department.

The justices sounded particularly concerned in arguments over congressional subpoenas about whether a ruling validation of the subpoenas would lead to harassing future presidents.

“In your view, there is really no protection against the use of congressional subpoenas for the purpose of preventing the harassment of a president,” Justice Samuel Alito said to Douglas Letter, the lawyer for the House of Representatives.

The justices will meet by telephone before the end of the week to take a preliminary vote on how those cases should come out, final decisions are expected by early summer.
