CNN commentator Adam Kinzinger stated that if the Supreme Court rules in favor of President Donald Trump’s claim of immunity from subpoenas, it would end American democracy.

On CNN’s Anderson Cooper 360, Kinzinger agreed with Cooper that the ruling has major stakes.

“It’s important pointing out that there’s a lot at stake here in this ruling,” Cooper said.

Kinzinger said if the Court finds unlimited presidential immunity, he does not see how the presidency or democracy can continue, as it would allow a “bad actor” president to get away with anything by virtue of their title.

Kinzinger said, “Oh, there’s a lot at stake. I mean, not just in terms of what it means for this election in my obviously, if the Supreme Court comes back of what we expect and say, you don’t have absolute immunity then potentially this trial will proceed.”

He added, “If they come back and say there is such thing as unlimited immunity I don’t see how the presidency, and frankly how democracy can continue. If you have a bad actor in place that literally can get away with anything so long as he or she has the title the president in front of their name.”

Kinzinger expressed hope for a resounding 9-0 or 8-1 defeat of Trump’s position, affirming subpoenas can be issued against a sitting president.

He maintained the Court needs to firmly reject unlimited immunity to preserve the presidency and democracy.

“This is a very important thing for the Supreme Court to take up. It may be why they decided to take this up after the appellate court, but they’re going to have to make their stamp. Hopefully it comes out 9-0, potentially 8-1. But it’s going to be a resounding defeat for Trump. I think,” he said.
