Ex-US President Donald Trump has asked the Supreme Court to suspend a lower court ruling that he does not have presidential immunity from prosecution.
Trump had claimed that he could not be tried for acts carried out as president in his election interference case.
However, three lower court judges disagreed, ruling that he can be prosecuted like any other citizen.
Trump’s lawyers have pleaded for him not to be tried during an election campaign as conducting a months-long criminal trial at the height of election season will radically disrupt President Trump’s ability to campaign against President Biden.
The Supreme Court have to decide whether to put the ruling on hold or allow Trump to appeal but if it declines to put the ruling on pause, the federal trial overseen by Judge Tanya Chutkan will be scheduled, likely for spring.
