Former President Donald Trump is expected to decide on Monday if he is going to file an appeal with the U.S. Supreme Court regarding his presidential immunity claim in his Washington, D.C., election interference case.

A federal appeals court ruled earlier this week that Trump is not immune from criminal prosecution, allowing special counsel Jack Smith to prosecute Trump on the four criminal charges related to his alleged efforts to overturn the results of the 2020 presidential election. In August 2023, Trump was indicted by the Department of Justice (DOJ) concerning his alleged role in the U.S. Capitol riot on January 6, 2021. The former president has pled not guilty and has said the case against him is politically motivated.

Trump, the GOP frontrunner in the 2024 presidential election, has already said he will appeal the decision to the Supreme Court, which means the trial, which has already been delayed from its original March 4, 2024, date, could be put back even further pending the Court’s decision.
