Majority Leader Schumer Statement On Supreme Court Decision In Trump Immunity Case

New York, N.Y. – Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) today released the following statement on the MAGA Supreme Court decision in former President Trump’s immunity case regarding the January 6th insurrection:


“This is a sad day for America and a sad day for our democracy. The very basis of our judicial system is that no one is above the law. Treason or incitement of an insurrection should not be considered a core constitutional power afforded to a president.

“This disgraceful decision by the MAGA Supreme Court – which is comprised of three justices appointed by Mr. Trump himself – enables the former President to weaken our democracy by breaking the law. This decision undermines the credibility of the Supreme Court, and suggests that political influence trumps all in our courts today.”
