‘No Immunity’ – Former President Trump’s Criminal Trials Continue

-

ANALYSIS – The American banana republic soap opera that is the political persecution of continues. On February 6, a federal appeals court ruled that Donald Trump is not immune from criminal prosecution for alleged crimes committed during his presidency.

Therefore, barring a different ruling from the U.S. , Trump still faces four criminal investigations via a weaponized local and federal criminal justice system.

With his third presidential bid under way for 2024, Trump is the first former president in U.S. history to face criminal charges.

The ruling marks the second time in as many months that judges have rebuffed Trump's immunity arguments and held that he could be prosecuted for actions undertaken while in the White House and in the run-up to January 6, 2021, when a mob of his supporters stormed the U.S. Capitol.
