Politico: “Trump is expected to ask the high court to stave off the trial following Tuesday’s ruling from a federal appeals court that emphatically rejected his bid for ‘presidential immunity’ from the criminal charges.”
“The former president now faces a key deadline of next Monday to ask the Supreme Court to step in — and once he does, the justices will face a set of options with obvious ramifications for the presidential campaign.”
“They could hear Trump’s appeal on an accelerated schedule. They could take their time — and in doing so, essentially guarantee that the federal election-subversion trial could not occur before November. Or they could simply decline to hear Trump’s appeal at all — a move that would allow the trial proceedings, which have been stalled for nearly two months, to resume quickly.”
