Trump Punches Back Against January 6 Inquisition

45th President Donald J. Trump is claiming “absolute immunity” in all civil suits regarding the January 6 U.S. Capitol incursion.

Fox News reports:

Trump’s preliminary statement to the court has been released, in which the former president’s legal team dismisses the possibility of civil suits against Trump entirely, citing presidential immunity.

“This appeal requires the adjudication of a simple but important constitutional issue regarding the separation of powers: whether the scope of the presidential absolute immunity continues to reach the outer perimeters of presidential responsibilities or whether the immunity can be undercut if the presidential act in question is unpopular among the judiciary,” the statement read.

Trump’s legal team continued, “This question has already been answered by the Supreme Court, which held that the immunity is rooted in constitutional separation of powers, and it is especially important to the President because he deals with matters that are controversial and arouse intense feelings.”

In his preliminary statement, Trump claimed that a judiciary review of “executive function” would set a poor precedent for the future, allowing the three branches of government to interfere and meddle with one another on ideological grounds.

“In an increasingly polarized political environment, it is critical that the judiciary draw bright lines that it will not cross regarding overstepping into the regulation of executive function,” the 45th President’s statement continued. “The underlying factual dispute regarding the January 6, 2021, violence at the Capitol arouses the passions of many Americans, including members of the bench and bar.”

AND ONCE ‘IN POWER’ NEVER LET IT GO WITHOUT A FIGHT.
THAT IS THE COMMIE WAY, LIE, STEAL AND CHEAT.
ADMIT NOTHING, DENY EVERYTHING,AND MAKE COUNTER ACCUSATIONS.
THEY LOOK FORWARD TO THE BLOOD IN THE STREETS.THE THUGS ARE
THEIR STREET LEVEL FORCES, AND THEY LOOK FORWARD TO THE BURNING,
LOOTING AND KILLING. THEY KNOW THE REPUBLICANS HAVE NO GUTS FOR A FIGHT.

It’s the Jan 6 criminal committee that needs brought to trial for their crooked activities that are occurring currently and that includes both crooked parties involved.
