Corrupt New York Times Ignores Unconstitutional Biden/Obama Lawfare – Criticizes President Trump for Delays

 

The New York Times continues down the corrupt road to dishonesty – quick to criticize President Trump for “delaying” corrupt cases, the “Times” ignores that the cases are criminal and unconstitutional.

The New York Times is unable to report the truth.  This entity has become the propaganda arm of the Deep State.

The Supreme Court yesterday confirmed that the President of the United States has immunity for his official acts which didn’t sit well with the corrupt left.

The New York Times, rather that support the Constitution, called out President Trump for attempting to delay (unconstitutional) indictments from the DOJ.

The Supreme Court has concluded that the president of the United States is above the law — at least sometimes.

Yesterday, the court issued a ruling in Trump v. United States. The case sought to determine whether prosecutors could seek charges against Donald Trump for trying to overturn the 2020 election or if he was immune from prosecution because he was president at the time. But the Supreme Court’s actual decision went beyond Trump.

The court ruled that presidents are presumed to be shielded from prosecution for official acts. That includes policy changes, military decisions and discussions with other administration officials. It doesn’t include, for example, private acts taken exclusively as a political candidate.

On specific legal questions concerning Trump’s role in election interference and the Jan. 6 Capitol riot, the Supreme Court was less clear. It largely punted to the judge in the federal case to decide which of Trump’s actions qualify as an official act or a private one. “That analysis ultimately is best left to the lower courts to perform in the first instance,” Chief Justice John Roberts wrote. (Read highlights from the court’s opinions.)

The practical effect is that the decision will delay Trump’s election interference trial — reducing the chances that it will happen before Election Day in November, if it happens at all.

Today’s newsletter will explain what this new precedent means for Trump, and how it may reshape presidential power for years to come.

On the Trump charges

Since prosecutors filed charges against Trump, he has followed a strategy of delay, delay, delay. If he wins the election before the remaining criminal cases against him conclude, he could use the presidency to prevent the trials from moving forward.

The Supreme Court’s ruling helps Trump achieve that goal. First, the judge in the federal election interference case, Tanya Chutkan, will have to hold hearings and decide which parts of the case violate the Supreme Court’s new immunity standard. Then, either side could appeal Chutkan’s decisions. The appeals could once again go all the way to the Supreme Court, producing more months of delays.

The Supreme Court ruling makes it all but certain that Trump “will not stand trial on charges of seeking to overturn the last election before voters decide whether to send him back to the White House in the next one,” wrote my colleague Alan Feuer, who’s covering the case. It does, however, give prosecutors a chance to publicly show their evidence against Trump, as they present it in court for inclusion in the trial.

The ruling also could apply to the state charges against Trump, in Georgia and New York. Trump already filed a motion yesterday to overturn the conviction against him in New York, citing the Supreme Court.

On presidential power

When the Supreme Court first heard the case in April, Justice Neil Gorsuch said, “We’re writing a rule for the ages.” The court would decide what legal protections apply not just to Trump, but to future presidents as well.

The majority opinion, which Roberts wrote, does just that. It says presidents must be able to make difficult decisions without worrying that someday they could be criminally punished for their choices. “A president inclined to take one course of action based on the public interest may instead opt for another, apprehensive that criminal penalties may befall him upon his departure from office,” Roberts wrote.

Some legal scholars believe the decision goes too far in expanding presidential power. In her dissent, Justice Sonia Sotomayor argued that the ruling would enable presidents to do things that, before now, might have seemed clearly outside the law. “Orders the Navy’s SEAL Team 6 to assassinate a political rival? Immune,” she wrote. “Organizes a military coup to hold onto power? Immune. Takes a bribe in exchange for a pardon? Immune. Immune, immune, immune.”

The Times and the communist left have lost their minds.  The day is coming when they will wake up to the reality that their communist actions are as insane as their pretending Joe Biden is a functioning adult.
