Supreme Court Hears Presidential Immunity Cases

Seek to answer question of how sheltered the executive office is.

On Tuesday, the Supreme Court heard oral arguments on the much-watched Trump v. Mazars and Trump v. Vance. Both of these cases primarily deal with the question of the extent of the president’s power, and how much civil and criminal prosecution is able to take place while a president is in office and afterward. The question is primarily with regards to subpoenas from Congress and the State of New York issued to President Trump for his financial records. 

A final decision in these cases is not expected to come out until this summer. Justice Kavanaugh summed up the major decisions the justices of the court have to make saying, “And the question then boils down to, how can we both protect the House’s interest in obtaining the information it needs to legislate but also protect the presidency?”

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • That God would lead the justices of the Court to the best decisions for the nation.
  • That President Trump would be led by the Lord in the actions he takes.
  • For the result of these cases to be a stronger, more just nation.
