Supreme Court leans towards rejecting Trump's claim of absolute immunity but the decision's timing may impact trial delay

The Supreme Court appears inclined to reject former President Donald Trump's claim of absolute immunity from prosecution over election interference. However, the timing of the decision could potentially lead to a lengthy trial delay, possibly extending beyond the upcoming election. Several conservative justices raised concerns about the charges and implications for future presidencies, indicating that the case may need further review. Trump's legal team argues for absolute immunity for former presidents, while prosecutors insist on holding him accountable for alleged actions related to election interference.
