In a major blow to former President Donald Trump, a federal court has ruled that he is not immune from prosecution for his actions while serving in office. It’s like the court just said, “Hey Trump, your immunity card has been revoked!” This sets the stage for an epic showdown between Trump and the Biden Justice Department’s special counsel, Jack Smith. You can almost imagine the dramatic music playing as these two go head-to-head.
The court, in its 57-page opinion, made it crystal clear that Trump is no longer protected by any special immunity just because he used to be the big cheese in the White House. The judges were like, “Sorry Trump, but you’re just a regular old citizen now, and you’re going to have to face the consequences of your actions like anyone else would.” Ouch! That’s gotta sting for Trump, who probably thought he had a get-out-of-jail-free card hidden up his sleeve.

This ruling is an absolute slam dunk for Jack Smith, who is pursuing a staggering 91 felony counts against Trump. These charges include accusations of Trump encouraging violence on January 6th, 2021, and illegally hoarding classified documents. It’s like the prosecutors are saying, “No more Mr. Nice Guy, Trump. We’re coming after you!” The former president has been crying foul, calling this whole thing a “witch hunt” orchestrated by President Biden and his cronies. But let’s be real, Trump is just trying to dodge accountability here.
The court also shot down Trump’s defense that only Congress can hold him accountable for his actions. They basically said, “No way, Jose! The Constitution makes it clear that the President is not above the law.” It’s refreshing to see the court push back against Trump’s attempts to wriggle out of responsibility. Finally, someone is standing up to the ex-president’s ego and reminding him that he can’t play by his own rules.
Of course, Trump isn’t going down without a fight. His legal team will surely appeal this ruling to the Supreme Court, because why accept defeat when you can keep the drama going? If the Supreme Court takes up the case, it could freeze the trials for months, giving Trump more time to avoid facing the music. But let’s hope this whole spectacle doesn’t drag on forever. The American people deserve to see justice served, and they deserve to see it served swiftly.
In the meantime, Trump and his supporters will likely continue their attempt to paint Jack Smith as some sort of evil villain, claiming that he colluded with Biden to bring politically motivated charges. It’s all just a big show to distract from Trump’s own actions. I mean, come on, Trump, you can’t just scream “fake news” whenever things don’t go your way. It’s time to take responsibility for the mess you made and give the American people the closure they deserve.
