The Supreme Court ruled last week that presidents are immune from criminal prosecution for "official acts." This decision was made along ideological lines, with a 6-3 vote. The ruling did not provide a clear distinction between official and unofficial acts, which may lead to further disputes in the future, including in Trump's four criminal cases.

Many legal experts believe this ruling is the latest example of conservative Supreme Court justices limiting the ability of federal prosecutors to pursue alleged wrongdoing by elected officials. The decision will significantly impact the evidence prosecutors can present in Trump's D.C. case and could lead to challenges to his felony conviction in New York and his classified documents indictment in Florida. It may also lead to motions to dismiss or limit the state charges he faces in Georgia for alleged election interference.

conspiracy to defraud the United States, conspiracy to obstruct an official proceeding, obstruction of and attempting to obstruct an official proceeding, and conspiracy against rights. His lawyers argued that he should be immune from prosecution for actions he took as president, and this argument was the basis for the Supreme Court case.

In a previous ruling, Chief Justice Roberts wrote that the Justice Department's prosecution of a governor for doing favors in exchange for gifts could discourage government officials from participating in campaign fundraising, social events, and constituent services. Roberts cited this concern in the Trump decision, suggesting that presidents could be unfairly hampered by the fear of prosecution unless they have immunity for official acts.

Legal experts believe the Justice Department will continue to walk a fine line in pursuing alleged wrongdoing by elected officials. However, the Supreme Court's decision sends a message that the department must be cautious in its investigations to avoid infringing on the ability of politicians to engage in political activities.
