Schatz Statement On Supreme Court’s Trump Immunity Decision

HONOLULU – U.S. Senator Brian Schatz (D-Hawai‘i) today released the following statement on the Supreme Court’s decision in Trump v. United States, ruling that former President Donald Trump is partially immune from prosecution. In sending the case back down to the lower court, the decision is poised to delay the pivotal criminal trial on charges against Trump of attempting to overthrow the 2020 election.

“Despite today’s ruling from the MAGA Court, no one is above the law, including former presidents. We all saw with our own eyes Trump’s repeated – and in the case of January 6th, violent – efforts to overturn the completely legitimate results of the 2020 election. He deserves to be held accountable for his crimes, just as any other American would.”
