ELECTION - IS TRUMP ABOVE THE LAW? - U.S. Court of Appeals Ruling - Part 3, Double Jeopardy Principle and Conclusion
Jul 02, 2024 Season 4 Episode 32
Michael C. Patterson

The U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia, the nation’s second highest court, has ruled unanimously that Trump is NOT immune from prosecution, nor is he above the law. They explained every aspect of their decision in a 67-page document. 

To make it easier for everyone to have access to this important decision, and to understand how the U.S. Court of Appeals came to their decision, I've recorded three of the four main sections of the  US Court of Appeals Ruling. 

The IS TRUMP ABOVE THE LAW? series of  podcasts offers a reading of the following sections of the U.S. Court of Appeals ruling: 

Section I - Background 

Section III - Executive Immunity

Section IV - Double Jeopardy Principle & Conclusion. 

For the sake of time I did not record Section II which discusses why the U.S. Court of Appeals has jurisdiction to make a decision on this matter. 
 
 The Supreme Court apparently feels compelled to have the final say on Trump’s immunity claims and will hear oral arguments during the week of April 22 on a single question: "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." 

It will be interesting to what basis the Supreme Court uses for their decision - the law or politics.
