On Wednesday, the US Supreme Court agreed to hear Trump’s claim of presidential immunity in Special Counsel Jack Smith’s January 6 case in Washington, DC.

The high court will hear oral arguments on an expedited schedule during the week of April 22 and will make a decision by the end of the term in June, possibly earlier.

Judge Tanya Chutkan has indefinitely postponed the trial date set for March 4 as Trump’s immunity argument progresses through the legal system, suggesting that Jack Smith’s January 6 trial may be delayed beyond November.

Earlier this month, President Trump petitioned the US Supreme Court to pause the immunity ruling in Jack Smith’s January 6 case in DC.

Previously, a federal appeals court, composed primarily of Biden-appointed judges, rejected Trump’s immunity claim in Jack Smith’s DC case. The three-judge panel for the DC Circuit Court of Appeals included Florence Pan and Michelle Childs, both Biden appointees, along with Karen Henderson, appointed by George W. Bush.
