Ted Cruz expects Supreme Court to rule in Trump’s favor in presidential immunity case
03/03/2024 // Arsenio Toledo // Views

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) has said in an interview that he hopes the Supreme Court of the United States will put an end to the “enormous abuse of power” that has resulted in former President Donald Trump having to come before the country’s highest court.

The Supreme Court announced that it will issue a ruling on whether or not the former president can be criminally prosecuted for allegations that he attempted to overturn the official results of the 2020 election.

"I have to say, I'm glad the Supreme Court is taking the case," he said on Feb. 28 during an interview with NewsNation. "I have to say what we’ve seen in the past year – about the targeting from the left, the targeting from Democrat prosecutors of Donald Trump – has been an enormous abuse of power."

"We've never in our history had a president or former president indicted, and in the past year, Donald Trump has been indicted four different times by both [President Joe Biden's] Justice Department and by two Democrat Das [district attorneys]," he added. "And I think this is an abuse of power and persecution of President Trump. And I very much hope that the Supreme Court puts a stop to it."

Federal prosecutors pushing to deny Trump presidential immunity

The senator's comments come after the Supreme Court agreed on Feb. 28 to consider an inquiry into whether or not Trump's presidential immunity applies to Trump in the federal criminal case regarding the four felony counts the Department of Justice has levied against him regarding his role in the events of Jan. 6, 2021, which allege that he was involved in a conspiracy to defraud the United States and stood at the center of a campaign to block the certification of electoral college votes on that day.

Federal prosecutors argue Trump enjoys no immunity from criminal prosecution. The former president’s lawyers claim he has complete immunity under federal law, pointing to the 1982 Supreme Court case Nixon v. Fitzgerald, which granted sitting and former presidents immunity from civil lawsuits for acts within the “outer perimeter” of the president’s official responsibilities.

"Without presidential immunity, a president will not be able to properly function or make decisions in the best interest of the United States of America," wrote Trump in a statement welcoming the Supreme Court's decision to make a ruling.

Oral arguments have been scheduled for the week beginning on April 22, although it is not yet clear when the court's final decision will be released after that.

The Supreme Court's decision to take up the cases also forces Justice Department Special Counsel Jack Smith to pause his investigation into the former president, an order considered by the administration to be a blow following his past efforts to keep the case’s time frame on track to be completed before the election in November.
