In a monumental decision issued on Monday, the United States Supreme Court ruled that former presidents have immunity for official acts. The court’s decision comes after former President Donald Trump argued he should be immune from criminal charges related to the January 6 Capitol riot and 2020 election.

“The President enjoys no immunity for his unofficial acts, and not everything the President does is official. The President is not above the law. But Congress may not criminalize the President’s conduct in carrying out the responsibilities of the Executive Branch under the Constitution,” the court’s opinion states.

“And the system of separated powers designed by the Framers has always demanded an energetic, independent Executive,” it continues. “The President therefore may not be prosecuted for exercising his core constitutional powers, and he is entitled, at a minimum, to a presumptive immunity from prosecution for all his official acts. That immunity applies equally to all occupants of the Oval Office, regardless of politics, policy, or party.”

Trump praised the ruling in a series of posts on his social media platform Truth Social.


“Today’s Historic Decision by the Supreme Court should end all of Crooked Joe Biden’s Witch Hunts against me, including the New York Hoaxes – The Manhattan SCAM cooked up by Soros backed D.A., Alvin Bragg, Racist New York Attorney General Tish James’ shameless ATTACK on the amazing business that I have built, and the FAKE Bergdorf’s ‘case.’ PROUD TO BE AN AMERICAN!” Trump continued.

“The Supreme Court totally dismantled most of the charges against me. Joe Biden should now call off his ‘dogs.’ Our Country should now be focused on GREATNESS again!” the former president added in a separate post.
