A federal appeals court ruled that former President Donald Trump does not have presidential immunity from prosecution regarding alleged criminal acts related to 2020 election interference.

The court rejected Trump’s claim of immunity, upholding a trial judge’s ruling.

Trump is expected to appeal the decision to the U.S. Supreme Court as part of an effort to delay the case against him by special counsel Jack Smith.

“We have balanced former President Trump’s asserted interests in executive immunity against the vital public interests that favor allowing this prosecution to proceed,” the panel stated.

“We conclude that ‘[c]oncerns of public policy, especially as illuminated by our history and the structure of our government’ compel the rejection of his claim of immunity in this case,” the panel added.

Smith aims to move the trial forward in March, potentially impacting Trump’s political prospects in the 2024 election.
