Trump V US Supreme Court Case A “Mixed” Result!

The case of Trump V US has finally been issued by the Supreme Court, and it is a disappointing decision, but despite strong criticism by many, it is a “mixed” decision, that allows for future prosecution.

It makes “official” acts of a President immune, but does not claim that all acts are official, and there are aspects of Donald Trump’s behavior around the Presidential Election Of 2020 that are clearly not protected.

So while some actions of Trump cannot be prosecutable due to the decision, the ability to move forward and prosecute Trump can only be prevented if Trump wins the Presidency again.

Otherwise, the actions around the Florida case of documents illegally at Mar A Lago, and the Georgia case of pressuring the Secretary of State to find votes to change the results, and some of the actions around January 6 can still be pursued in court.

The crucial action is to insure Donald Trump does not win the Presidential Election Of 2024, and that means the Democrats must do everything possible to insure victory, not only in the race for the White House, but also for the future 119th Congress!

Also, future Supreme Court and other judicial appointments are determined by who wins the White House, and the only way to reform the courts is more Democratic Presidential appointments, so another reason for the urgency to insure victory for the Democrats at all levels!

    It’s a dangerous decision they made.

    SCOTUS has turned back 250 years of history, fundamentally altering the structure and nature of democracy in America, awarding the president the measure of power and immunity that is much closer to that of a king or emperor.

    Saw this on Twitter. This sums it up pretty well.

    SCOTUS: homeless people can’t sleep outside

    SCOTUS: POTUS can’t forgive student debt

    SCOTUS: women don’t have autonomy over their bodies

    It’s for official acts. I’m hoping Judge Chutkin will get him on some things. Possibly a naive hope.

    Every determination Judge Chutkan makes about what’s official and unofficial will be challenged all the way up to SCROTUS. Trump basically will die before ever being prosecuted for his crimes.

    I feel the same way.

    Trump is poised to avoid pre-election trials in the three most significant criminal prosecutions he faces.

    The Supreme Court ruling hamstrings the election subversion case.

    Judge Cannon is slow walking the documents case.

    Georgia’s 2020 election case is now on indefinite hold while the Georgia Court of Appeals reviews ethical allegations against the prosecutor for her romantic relationship with her deputy. The appeals court could decide to disqualify Willis, a decision that would effectively kill the entire case.

    It’s up to voters to save democracy. I don’t have much faith in them though.
