Day 1260

1/ Biden denounced the Supreme Court’s decision to grant convicted felon Trump broad immunity from prosecution, warning that it sets “a dangerous precedent” and “undermines the rule of law.” Biden said the court’s 6-3 decision puts “virtually no limits on what a president can do,” and all but ensures Trump won’t be tried on charges of trying to overturn the 2020 election before the upcoming 2024 election. The court sent the case back to the trial judge to determine which, if any of Trump’s actions, were part of his official duties and thus were protected from prosecution. “The American people must decide if Trump’s embrace of violence to preserve his power is acceptable,” Biden added. “Perhaps most importantly, the American people must decide if they want to entrust the presidency once again to Donald Trump — now, knowing he’ll be more emboldened to do whatever he pleases, whenever he wants to do it.” (New York Times / Washington Post / NPR / Associated Press / Axios)
