Trump Claims ‘Total Immunity’ In ‘SAD’ Rant Over Jan 6 Report



Donald Trump

As a dark cloud of investigations threatens to rain multiple indictments on him, Donald Trump continues his extended meltdown on his personal social media site over the final report of the House Select Committee investigating the January 6 attack on the US Capitol and his failed attempt to overturn the 2020 election results.

In his latest rant, the former president claims to have “total immunity” and that he did “nothing wrong” despite the overwhelming evidence of criminality.

“Very interesting, because until recently the political Hacks and Thugs of the highly partisan January 6th Unselect Committee were seldom talking about your favorite President, me, as it related to the PROTEST on Election Fraud. NUMBER ONE, as President, I have total Immunity,” Trump declared.

He added: “Number two, I did nothing wrong. Then the Committee members, mostly the same sleaze that pushed the Russia, Russia, Russia HOAX, started saying that “Trump” did it. Even Shifty Schiff got into the act again. SAD!!!””

However, the committee issued 845 pages discussing all of the evidence that Trump committed multiple crimes during his attempted coup, and the claim that he has immunity as a president, the claim likely won’t work out in court.

As noted by former White House Counsel for Richard Nixon, John Dean, presidential immunity only applies to decisions that a president makes as president. So, a policy decision or military action isn’t something that can draw lawsuits against Trump personally.

But the Jan. 6 attack on Congress and all of the things that surrounded the 2020 election weren’t policies enacted by a president but the behavior of a desperate political candidate who’d lost.

As a former president, Trump has no immunity and a federal judge has already ruled on the matter.

“If Former President Trump disrupted the certification of the electoral vote count, as Plaintiffs allege here, such actions would not constitute executive action in defense of the Constitution. For these reasons, the Court concludes that Former President Trump is not immune in this suit,” Judge Emmet Sullivan wrote in his ruling.
