JUST IN: Supreme Court to hear Trump's immunity claim April 25

The case from special counsel Jack Smith has been put on pause while the immunity case goes forward.

The Supreme Court has announced that they will hear oral arguments in Donald Trump's immunity case on April 25. 

Trump brought the case amid the J6 case brought against him by the Biden administration, saying that he is immune from prosecution due to his having been president at the time. The case from special counsel Jack Smith has been put on pause while the immunity case goes forward.

On Feb. 6, the US Circuit Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia ruled against Trump, stating that he does not have presidential immunity in the J6 case against him. Trump filed an emergency request at the Supreme Court on Feb. 12 which prevented the court of appeals ruling from taking effect.

In a statement issued after the Supreme Court decided to take up the case, Trump wrote, "Without Presidential Immunity, a President will not be able to properly function, or make decisions, in the best interest of the United States of America. Presidents will always be concerned, and even paralyzed, by the prospect of wrongful prosecution and retaliation after they leave office. This could actually lead to the extortion and blackmail of a President."

"The other side would say, 'If you don't do something, just the way we want it, we are going to go after you when you leave office, or perhaps even sooner.' A President has to be free to determine what is right for our Country without undue pressure. If there is no Immunity, the Presidency, as we know it, will "no longer exist," he continued.

"Many actions for the benefit of our Country will not be taken. This is in no way what the Founders had in mind. Legal Experts and Scholars have stated that the President must have Full Presidential Immunity. A President must be free to make proper decisions. His mind must be clear, and he must not be guided by the fear of retribution!" said Trump.

The Supreme Court recently ruled on a case involving Donald Trump, in which they decided that the state of Colorado did not have the authority to remove Trump from the ballot under Section 3 of the 14th Amendment.
