‘BIG WIN FOR OUR CONSTITUTION’: Trump reacts to the Supreme Court ruling ex-presidents have protection from prosecution for official acts in immunity case in exclusive statement to Oluwafemi_dasola news

The Supreme Court ruled Monday in Trump v. United States that a former president has substantial immunity from prosecution for official acts committed while in office, but not for unofficial acts. The high court said Trump is immune from criminal prosecution for “official acts” – but left it to the lower court to determine exactly where the line between official and unofficial lay.

“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,” the majority opinion written by Chief Justice John Roberts states. “That immunity applies equally to all occupants of the Oval Office, regardless of politics, policy, or party.”

Although the decision appears to be less than a total victory for Trump, the former president lauded the ruling.

“I have been harassed by the Democrat Party, Joe Biden, Obama and their thugs, fascists and communists for years,” Trump told Fox News Digital. “And now the courts have spoken.”

He added: “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.”

The Supreme Court weighed in on the issue of presidential immunity after Trump, the presumptive Republican presidential nominee, appealed to the justices when he was charged as part of Special Counsel Jack Smith’s federal election interference case.

Smith charged Trump with conspiracy to defraud the U.S.; conspiracy to obstruct an official proceeding; obstruction of and attempt to obstruct an official proceeding; and conspiracy against rights.
