Former President Donald Trump’s lawyers, David Schoen and John Sauer, appeared in federal appeals court to argue that as a former president, Trump has immunity from criminal charges.

However, the judges were skeptical of this claim and poked holes in their legal theories.

The lawyers also argued that the Senate lacked the power to prevent Trump from running for office again. (Trending: Joe Biden Caught In Another Major Lie About J6)

However, the judges looked “back into the congressional record to pull out an argument that David Schoen, a member of Trump’s counsel, leaned on.”

Trump’s former legal counsel argued for Trump’s ability to return to life as a private citizen. “The Constitution dictates that the primary punishment for impeachment is removal from office, with the option for senators to also ban that person from holding office again,” the report found. “As Trump was already out of office, they argued, the Senate lacked the power to keep him from running to reclaim the White House.”

David Schoen once said, “We have a judicial process in this country. We have an investigative process in this country to which no former officeholder is immune. That is the process that should be running its course.”

The judges are unlikely to find these arguments convincing, and the goal seems to be to delay the trial until Trump potentially returns to office.
