At the highest levels of the judiciary, judges spar over Trump’s legal powers

Dan Berman of CNN –

“We’re asking for temporary presidential immunity.”

That was the direct request from Jay Sekulow, President Donald Trump’s personal attorney, to the Supreme Court on Tuesday in the historic lawsuit over turning over the President’s tax returns to a grand jury.

The idea is fairly simple: that the President, while in office, shouldn’t be subject to ordinary — or even extraordinary — investigations or any criminal process. After all, as Sekulow noted, there’s a lot happening in the world on a daily basis, including a pandemic that has shut down the country.
