6-3 Majority Rules President Trump Has Immunity


Former President Donald Trump said the Supreme Court gave democracy a massive victory Monday by ruling that presidents have immunity from prosecution for official acts.

The ruling did not determine where the line between official and unofficial acts that have no immunity exists.

The court ruled that "the separation of powers principles" requires "at least a presumptive immunity from criminal prosecution for a President's acts within the outer perimeter of his official responsibility. Such an immunity is required to safeguard the independence and effective functioning of the Executive Branch, and to enable the President to carry out his constitutional duties without undue caution."

Justices John Roberts, Clarence Thomas, Samuel Alito, Neil Gorsuch, Brett Kavanaugh and Amy Coney Barrett voted in favor of the ruling. Justices Sonia Sotomayor, Elena Kagan and Ketanji Brown Jackson made up the minority.

Trump said, he hopes the ruling brings an end to multiple court cases against him.

"I have been harassed by the Democrat Party, Joe Biden, Obama, and their thugs, fascists, and communists for years," Trump said, according to Fox News. "And now the courts have spoken."

"This is a big win for our Constitution and for democracy. Now I am free to campaign like anyone else. We are leading in every poll - by a lot - and we will make America great again," Trump said.
