Supreme Court Unpredictable On Presidential Immunity Case, Mind Boggling!

After watching and listening to commentary about the Supreme Court Presidential Immunity case of Donald Trump, one is left with a sense of unpredictability as to what the Court will determine and when.

It seems clear that there might be a split on the Court, with the likely “best” result being a 5-4 vote for limited use of Presidential immunity for official actions, but not for “private” actions such as campaigning for reelection.

Sonia Sotomayor, Elena Kagan, and Ketanji Brown Jackson seem certain on disputing Presidential immunity, and it also seems that the fourth woman on the Court, Amy Coney Barrett, might join them, leaving the determining vote likely to be Chief Justice John Roberts.

The other four Justices seem not to be concerned with any limits on Presidential immunity, including the events of January 6, 2021, which, if it works out that way, would be totally outrageous and disgraceful!
