Trump immunity claim rejected by appeals court in 2020 election case
>A federal appeals court in Washington found former President Donald Trump is not entitled to broad immunity from federal prosecution, delivering a landmark decision that would allow the criminal case against the former president involving the 2020 presidential election to move forward if the ruling is upheld.
Slam Shut The Door on Smith’s Sham
Last week, Judge Chutkan paused all dates related to Trump’s trial because he is appealing her denial of his motion to dismiss on the grounds of presidential immunity. This appeal, she ruled, divested her of jurisdiction during the pendency of it. Trump appealed to the District of Columbia Circuit. In the normal course, the court of appeals would resolve the issue, and the losing party could appeal to the Supreme Court. Smith, however, has introduced a wrinkle: he has sought Supreme Court review prior to a ruling from the D.C. Circuit (fancily known as certiorari before judgment). The Supreme Court has ordered a response by December 20 and will rule thereafter on Smith’s motion. The Court should deny it.
DC Obama Judge Tanya Chutkan is openly discussing how she's going to try to game the system to hold Trump's trial before the election.
There is no rush to try Trump before the election.
Other than election interference.
She's proudly a partisan activist.

Judge nixes Trump’s March 4 trial date in federal election subversion case
Judge Tanya Chutkan’s decision was widely expected amid Trump’s effort to have courts declare him immune from the charges.
I've carefully reviewed today's DC circuit opinion upholding Judge Chutkan's extremist decision to undo our constitutional system of government by allowing the unprecedented prosecution of @realDonaldTrump for official acts as President of the United States. Today's rushed and panicked appellate decision is another nakedly political act that seemsprimarily designed to ensure that Joe Biden's appointees can jail his political opponent before the election. The Supreme Court can't undo this judicial assault on the rule of law soon enough. Our Republic is at stake. I described what the Left is up to below. #BananaRepublic
