Trump appeals court loss on presidential immunity from federal election criminal charges

Trump trumped by court againDonald Trump is appealing a federal judge's ruling that he isn't protected by presidential immunity from criminal charges tied to his alleged interference in the 2020 election.

The former president filed the appeal Thursday along with a request for a pause in his criminal proceedings while the appeals court considers his arguments. Prosecutors oppose the pause request, Trump said. His trial in the case is currently scheduled to begin in March.

Trump is fighting charges brought by special counsel Jack Smith that could land him in prison for decades, including that he conspired to obstruct the process for certifying the election. U.S. District Judge Tanya Chutkan rejected a series of arguments from Trump to have the case dismissed, such as that he can't be prosecuted because his alleged actions were "at the heart of his official responsibilities as President."
