Cheney Warns Supreme Court Against Granting Trump Immunity

Former House of Representatives and J6 Committee member Liz Cheney has issued an urgent warning to the U.S. Supreme Court regarding Former President Donald Trump’s petition for presidential immunity.

Many conservatives assert that Cheney’s call for an urgent response from the Supreme Court is a thinly veiled attempt to deny due process and secure a conviction before the November election.

The Guardian reported that in February, Cheney said the Supreme Court should not pick up the immunity case as deliberating on the matter could take months and thus deny voters “crucial information” about Trump’s alleged involvement in election interference.

BizPac Review reported that Cheney recently spoke at Drake University’s Annual Bucksbaum Distinguished Lectureship and used the opportunity to send a message to the nine justices on the Supreme Court. Cheney said:

“When [Trump] now is pushing this idea that a president should have complete immunity against any criminal prosecution for anything he does in office and he’s pushed this appeal to the Supreme Court, I think it’s very important that the Supreme Court recognizes what he’s doing is a delaying tactic.”

Arguing that the court should not allow Trump to escape accountability, Cheney added: “It cannot be the case that a president of the United States can attempt to overturn an election and seize power and that our justice system is incapable of holding a trial and holding him to account before the next election.”

In her presentation, Cheney also noted that Trump has had access to all material reviewed by the J6 Committee, a statement denied by the former president and his legal team.

MSN recently reported that Cheney is accused of helping the J6 Committee hide evidence that boded well for Trump and kept it from appearing in the final report.

Trump responded to reports that Cheney suppressed evidence and controlled the narrative of information flowing from the J6 Committee to skew public opinion against him by calling for Cheney’s prosecution.

Cheney responded to Trump’s call for prosecution by saying, “All of the accusations against her and other committee members are lies and that the former president is afraid of the truth.”

Lower courts have ruled against Trump’s assertion that the court should drop election interference charges because presidential immunity provisions cover his statements and actions. The Supreme Court recently ruled that his arguments had merit and agreed to hear his appeal.

The National Constitution Center reported that the Supreme Court would “consider former President Donald Trump’s claims of immunity from conspiracy and obstruction charges related to the 2020 presidential election” on April 25.

Their report noted the immunity case will determine “whether and if so to what extent does a former President enjoy presidential immunity from criminal prosecution for conduct alleged to involve official acts during his tenure in office.”
