Following last week’s U.S. Supreme Court hearing, former President Donald Trump expressed optimism, emphasizing the importance of presidential immunity in light of charges brought against him by Special Counsel Jack Smith.

Trump described the hearing as “monumental” and asserted that it highlighted the necessity for a president to have immunity.

Speaking to reporters after attending the lengthy session in a Manhattan courtroom, where he is facing charges related to falsifying business records, Trump reflected on his ongoing defense against allegations of hush money payments to adult film star Stormy Daniels and former Playboy Playmate Karen McDougal.

Despite his request to attend arguments in Washington, D.C., Judge Juan Merchan ruled that Trump must be present in his Manhattan courtroom for each day of his criminal trial.

“I was forced to be here, and I’m glad I was because it was a very interesting day in a certain way,” Trump told reporters.

“The U.S. Supreme Court had a monumental hearing on immunity and the immunity having to do with presidential immunity,” Trump said. “And I think it was made clear, I hope it is very clear, that a president has to have immunity.”

Trump repeated his past claim that without immunity, presidents would be reduced to just a “ceremonial” position.

“That’s not what the founders had in mind,” he said. “We want presidents that can get quite amazing—quite amazing.” He added that the Supreme Court justices “were on their game.”

“So let’s see how that turns out,” he said. “But again, I say presidential immunity is very powerful. Presidential immunity is imperative, or you practically won’t have a country anymore.”

The justices are anticipated to deliver their decision in June.

Speculation among legal analysts suggests that the justices may potentially provide Trump with limited immunity for actions taken during his time in office and send the case back to a lower court for further review based on their criteria.

During the proceedings, Justice Neil Gorsuch contended that former presidents should be granted a degree of protection from future scrutiny once they have left office.

“It didn’t matter what the president’s motives were; that’s something courts shouldn’t get engaged in … I am concerned about future uses of criminal law to target political opponents based on accusations about their motives,” the Supreme Court justice said on April 25.

Gorsuch, Trump’s first of three Supreme Court appointees, hinted during the hearing that if justices decide not to hold that presidents should have some degree of immunity, then future presidents may be able to pardon themselves before leaving office.

He also said he didn’t want to decide whether or not a president could exercise that power, as the Epoch Times noted.

“We’ve never answered whether a president can do that; happily, it’s never been presented to us,” Gorsuch said of whether a president can issue a pardon to himself before leaving office.

“What would happen if presidents were under fear that their successors would criminally prosecute them for their acts in office?” Gorsuch also asked, citing a hypothetical situation in which former President Barack Obama could face prosecution for ordering a drone strike that killed civilians.

“We’re writing a rule for the ages,” he stated.

“Whatever we decide is going to apply to all future presidents,” Justice Samuel Alito added.

Reports indicated that Chief Justice John Roberts, along with other justices, suggested that presidents should not be immune from prosecution in any circumstance.

  • Wait now, I like this!
    Dig up Reagan and impeach him for granting amnesty to 3.3 illegal aliens in 1986.

    Impeach Obama/Biden! Reasons are many and obvious!

    Impeach the 44+ Jews, highly placed in the Biden administration, destroying America.

    jewishvirtuallibrary. org/jews-in-the-biden-administration

    Ron Klain Chief of Staff (2021-2023), replaced by Jeffrey Zients.
    Janet Yellin Secretary of Treasury
    Alejandro Mayorkas Secretary of Homeland Security
    Tony Blinken Secretary of State
    Merrick Garland Attorney General

    Impeach Trump for not:
    Deporting all illegal aliens.
    Finishing the border wall.
    Not firing the FBI/CIA/NSA/IRS/DHS Deep State leaders.
    –When he could have in 2017-2018 when GOP held all 3 branches of the US Government! But No!

    • In 2017-2018 you had that Traitor Paul Ryan as Speaker of the House and he BLOCKED a LOT of what Trump was trying to do for America

  • “ Trump reflected on his ongoing defense against allegations of hush money payments to adult film star Stormy Daniels and former Playboy Playmate Karen McDougal.”

    This is NOT a crime or what the charges are. If you don’t know even the most basic facts of what the case is about, I don’t think you are qualified to report on it.

  • The American People are sick and tired of this B___S___ in regard to former President Trump. If what we see Mr. Trump is just not as guilty as any other President, Democrat or Republican. Why all the crap? Why isn’t President Biden, Vice President Pence, or any other Past President not charged like President Trump? It seems that the media is part of the problem and the other part is the Biden Administration. Funny how records located at various places stored by then Vice President Biden, are more important then others found at the home of President Trump, and no one has charged Biden with anything, other than tipping over himself. It’s very obvious to the average citizen that this is all about the election. And that the Biden Administration should be looked, investigated, for election tampering. corruption is corruption regardless of who the President is, but why now? I feel that Past President OBama, Past President Clinton, Past President Bush should be investigated. What is good for one, is good for all. What is done today, will be remembered and used down the road. I’m sorry, in some cases, racist against whites. But then again, the people involved works for, or directed by the Biden Administration?
