Federal judge pauses deadlines in Trump documents case after SCOTUS immunity ruling

The federal judge presiding over former President Trump’s Florida case has paused several court deadlines to consider presidential immunity.

Trump’s legal team presented a motion Friday seeking ‘a partial stay of further proceedings’ in the case brought by special counsel Jack Smith ‘until President Trump’s motions based on Presidential immunity and the Appointments and Appropriations Clauses are resolved.’

U.S. District Judge Aileen Cannon on Saturday agreed to hear arguments, allowing two weeks for both camps to prepare briefs regarding the relevance of the Supreme Court’s ruling on presidential immunity.

Trump faces charges from Smith’s investigation into his possession of classified materials.

He pleaded not guilty to all 37 felony counts from Smith’s probe, including willful retention of national defense information, conspiracy to obstruct justice and false statements.

Trump was also charged with an additional three counts as part of a superseding indictment from the investigation, an additional count of willful retention of national defense information and two additional obstruction counts.

The Supreme Court ruled Monday in the Trump v. United States case that a former president has substantial immunity from prosecution for official acts while in office but not for unofficial acts.

In a 6-3 decision, the court sent the matter back to a lower court when the justices did not apply the ruling to whether former President Trump is immune from prosecution regarding actions related to efforts to overturn the results of the 2020 election.

‘The President enjoys no immunity for his unofficial acts, and not everything the President does is official,’ Chief Justice John Roberts wrote for the majority.
