( – Legal commentator Jeffrey Toobin remarked that the Supreme Court’s decision to examine Donald Trump’s presidential immunity claims is significantly advantageous to him, even if they eventually rule against his immunity. Toobin highlighted that the timing of the Court’s decision, expected in late June, effectively makes a trial in Washington D.C. on January 6-related charges highly unlikely before the election. Consequently, the only criminal trial Trump might face before Election Day would be the New York City trial on March 25 related to the Stormy Daniels case.

The Supreme Court’s recent announcement indicates it will review whether Trump can be held criminally liable for attempts to contest his 2020 election defeat. This decision pauses the trial proceedings in the federal election interference case led by special counsel Jack Smith, with oral arguments set for the week of April 22.

Trump had sought the Supreme Court’s intervention to postpone the federal election subversion trial while appealing against a lower court’s ruling that he is not immune from the charges. His legal team maintains that Trump should be granted presidential immunity against the charges he faces in Smith’s case. Trump expressed his approval of the Supreme Court’s willingness to hear the case through social media posts.

Additionally, the Supreme Court is deliberating on a Colorado decision that disqualified Trump from the state’s ballot under the 14th Amendment’s insurrection clause. Toobin, sharing his insights on CNN, predicted that oral arguments suggest a likely win for Trump in this matter.

Besides these issues, Trump confronts various legal challenges, including an impending trial in New York related to hush money allegations, scheduled to start on March 25.
