President Donald Trump claimed, “absolute immunity” in court against Jan 6th civil suits.
His legal team says “this question has already been answered by the Supreme Court, which held that the immunity is rooted in constitutional separation of powers.”
Former President Donald Trump is claiming “absolute immunity” in all civil suits pertaining to the Jan. 6 Capitol riots.
Trump’s preliminary statement to the court has been released, in which the former president’s legal team dismisses the possibility of civil suits against Trump entirely, citing presidential immunity.
“This appeal requires the adjudication of a simple but important constitutional issue regarding the separation of powers: whether the scope of the presidential absolute immunity continues to reach the outer perimeters of presidential responsibilities or whether the immunity can be undercut if the presidential act in question is unpopular among the judiciary,” the statement read.
Trump’s legal team continued, “This question has already been answered by the Supreme Court, which held that the immunity is rooted in constitutional separation of powers, and it is especially important to the President because he deals with matters that are controversial and arouse intense feelings.”
