Democrats Explode: Supreme Court’s Trump Move Branded ‘Fundamentally Corrupt’

Democratic leaders and commentators are expressing intense outrage over the Supreme Court’s decision to entertain former President Donald Trump’s claims of immunity, with their reactions suggesting a belief that the court might lean in Trump’s favor. Former House Speaker Nancy Pelosi voiced her concerns, stating, “The Supreme Court is placing itself on trial with its decision to hear the former president’s total immunity claim.” Pelosi emphasized the crucial American value that nobody, not even a former president, is above the law.

David Rothkopf, a columnist for The Daily Beast, labeled the decision to hear the case as “fundamentally corrupt,” asserting that the Appeals Court ruling was robust and that Trump lacks any form of immunity. He accused the court of intentionally delaying the trial without valid legal reasons, characterizing it as a politically motivated and unsightly decision. Joanne Carducci, a contributor to the outlet, expressed a more explicit and vulgar sentiment, attributing the delay to corruption, conspiracy, and those she labeled as “Christofascist traitors.”

While Democratic commentators painted the court as being influenced by “Christofascists,” no liberal judges dissented, nor did they oppose the court’s move to expedite consideration of special counsel Jack Smith’s petition on the immunity claims. MSNBC hosts Chris Hayes and Rachel Maddow adopted a sobering analysis, with Maddow even suggesting that the decision could pave the way for Trump to become a dictator. In contrast, Megyn Kelly contemplated the implications for Trump, acknowledging that he might have secured a significant advantage in overcoming the various legal challenges he faces.

Former President Trump’s legal team met the February 12 deadline to appeal the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit’s unanimous ruling against his claims of presidential immunity. The Supreme Court’s decision to hear the case introduces a delay in Trump’s Washington, D.C., election obstruction trial, representing a notable victory for the former president in the legal arena. The conservative perspective acknowledges concerns about the court’s objectivity but highlights that Trump has the right to appeal and present his case before the highest legal authority.
