The federal election interference case against former President Donald Trump is facing challenges as the U.S. Supreme Court reviews his claims of presidential immunity.

Legal analyst Andrew Weissman expressed pessimism about the case’s future, suggesting that even if Trump is not vindicated on immunity, the Court’s decision could still benefit him.

“I do not have the view that they took this case because they’re going to hand out a win to Donald Trump in the Colorado case, but here they’re going to give him a defeat by essentially saying there is no presidential immunity in this case. Yes of course I think they will ultimately not grant immunity in this case, but they have given him the win because the D.C. case, let’s just face it, is on life support now,” Weissman said.

Weissman highlighted difficulties in getting the case to trial before the election and Trump’s efforts to delay litigation.

“It is really, really hard to figure out how this case gets to trial before the election, and I think that’s the end result of what they did here… meaning if Joe Biden wins the case goes forward, but if he loses, the case is over,” he added.

“He’s trying to avoid at all costs the facts of what happened that are charged in this indictment that they do not get presented in court where facts actually matter and people will hear it. So he can continue to say this is all just a smear campaign by his political adversaries,” he said.

Time constraints are increasing pressure to prosecute Trump, with potential delays in trials and concerns about the impact on upcoming elections.
