Senator Offers High Praise Over Supreme Court Ruling

( – Tennessee Republican Senator Marsha Blackburn praised on July 1 the Supreme Court’s historic ruling of presidential immunity, as a victory for Republican nominee and former President Donald Trump, as well as a rebuke to the Democratic Party.

In a statement, Blackburn said that the court’s decision upheld the rule of law in the United States and rebuked the “blatant attempts” of some Democratic leaders to “weaponize” the American legal system against Trump for political purposes. The senator also claimed that the Biden administration has been doing everything it can to “take down” the Republican nominee, and said that most Americans are aware of it. She added that these “partisan” attacks won’t work in the United States as the people won’t let US President Joe Biden get away with it.

In the 6-3 ruling, the court declared that the House of Representatives must not “criminalize” the conduct of the commander-in-chief in carrying out the executive branch’s duties under the United States Constitution. The decision, which was authored by Chief Justice John Roberts, added that every “official” act taken by the US president was protected, but those taken in an unofficial capacity weren’t.

While many conservatives have praised the ruling, some Democratic leaders have claimed that the Supreme Court’s decision was wrong and that it set a dangerous precedent that could eventually affect the country’s democracy. One of these was President Biden, who said during a televised speech at the White House that the ruling gave more power to the president, as the law won’t be able to constrain it anymore. One of the president’s campaign officials even claimed that the court’s ruling allowed Trump to become a dictator.

Political analysts have said that the ruling benefits the former president as it would delay his trial for his alleged efforts to undermine the results of the 2020 presidential election. Many democrats were expecting the trial to take place before the November presidential election, which many believe could’ve affected Trump’s popularity.
