In Washington, the Supreme Court has set a schedule for hearing about former President Donald Trump’s claim of being immune from prosecution. This raises doubts whether the case against him for meddling in the election will be resolved before the 2024 election. This is seen as a win for Trump as he tries to avoid legal consequences for his actions to overturn the 2020 election.

The Supreme Court’s decision means that arguments will be heard in April, possibly delaying any trial until after the election. This means Trump might not face trial for allegedly obstructing Congress and disenfranchising voters before the chance to run for office again.

Earlier, there was a possibility of a trial starting in May based on an indictment from August. But with the Supreme Court’s decision, this timeline is no longer feasible. The delay caused by Trump’s team’s appeal has pushed the trial date further, making it unlikely to be resolved before the Republican National Convention in July.

The special counsel’s prosecutors estimated that the trial might take around three months after jury selection.
