BREAKING: Trump says ‘this is the way they’re going to try and win’ after immunity hearing in DC appellate court on J6 case


Following a hearing in Washington, DC in which lawyers argued over whether Donald Trump has presidential immunity in the January 6 case brought against him by special counsel Jack Smith, the former president spoke to reporters.

He claimed that the Biden administration was using the case as a way to ensure its victory in the upcoming election.

“I think it’s very unfair when a political opponent is prosecuted by Biden’s DOJ,” Trump said. “They’re losing in every poll, they’re losing in almost every demographic. Numbers came out today that are very mind-boggling if you happen to be Joe Biden.”

“I think they feel this is the way they’re gonna try and win, and that’s not the way it goes,” he added. “It’ll be bedlam in the country; it’s a very bad thing, it’s a very bad precedent. As we said, it’s the opening of a Pandora’s Box.”

“When they talk about a threat to democracy,” he said, “that’s your real threat to democracy.”

“I feel that as a president you have to have immunity,” Trump noted, pointing out that the issues in question took place while he was president, and not after he left office.

Trump’s lawyers clashed with federal prosecutors over whether he has presidential immunity in both the January 6 case and 2020 election case brought against him by special counsel Jack Smith.


The former president’s attorney, D John Sauer, argued that “the notion that criminal immunity for a president doesn’t exist is a shocking holding,” suggesting that if that were the case, Biden could be indicted in Texas for mismanaging the border.

Sauer went on to claim that the founders were “much more concerned about the abuse of the criminal process for political purposes to disable the presidency from factions and political opponents,” adding, “of course, that’s exactly what we see in this case.”
