Former President Donald Trump recently appeared to be confused during a rally. He told the attendees that the special counsel prosecuting him is trying to “get a guilty plea from the Supreme Court” via Mediaite.
However, unlike Trump, the Supreme Court is not under indictment. It has been noted that addressing a crowd in Iowa on Wednesday, he lambasted the prosecutions against him. He is facing 91 criminal counts in four jurisdictions. Notably, two of which are in federal court and being prosecuted by Special Counsel Jack Smith.
In one of the federal cases, Trump is being prosecuted over his effort to overturn the 2020 election. Trump’s attorneys argue their client’s attempt to subvert the election was part of his official duties as president, which therefore makes him immune from prosecution.
It has been noted that in response, Smith filed an emergency petition with the Supreme Court, asking the justices to rule on whether Trump has immunity. The court asked Trump’s lawyers to respond by Dec. 20. The special counsel is hoping to keep the case on track for its March 4 start date.
“And, you know, now they’re saying, ‘Let’s rush it to the Supreme– we gotta rush it, rush it, rush it,” he said. “They could have started three years ago. Everything– nothing changed. They could have started three years ago, but they didn’t. They started just recently with this crap.”
He then railed against Smith’s appeal to the Supreme Court, which, he said, may plead guilty to something.
And then they saw I was running and they waited and then they saw I was hot. And they filed lawsuits. These are very dishonest people. That’s called election interference. These are very– and now they’re fighting like hell because they want to try and get a guilty plea from the Supreme Court of the United States, which I can’t imagine, ’cause you have presidential immunity. But strange things happen. But they want to get that because that’s the only way they’re going to win the election. It’s a very sick thing.
