The Supreme Court’s decision could impact the trial’s timing.

“It is of paramount public importance that respondent’s claims of immunity be resolved as expeditiously as possible,” wrote Jack Smith.

Smith wrote that he “recognizes that this is an extraordinary request. This is an extraordinary case,” about wanting too finish the trial before the presidential election.

The case, involving criminal charges and other legal actions, is of significant national importance and is being closely watched.
