Donald Trump requests to archive his criminal case in Georgia while appealing his presidential immunity

Washington – Former US president donald trump This Monday he presented a petition to have his criminal case filed in the state Georgia appealing that he had immunity when the events occurred.

It is an argument very similar to the one used by his defense in the criminal case in Washingtonin which this Tuesday a hearing will be held before a federal appeals court that is studying whether or not to admit that allegation.

The two court cases have to do with Trump’s efforts to interfere in the outcome of the elections to the White House of 2020, who lost against the now president, the Democrat Joe Biden.

“The indictment in this case charges President Trump with acts that are at the heart of his official responsibilities as president. “The accusation conflicts with his presidential immunity and must be dismissed.”the lawyers pointed out in the petition presented to the Georgia state court.

The defense strategy is the same one that lawyers have insisted on from the beginning, that Trump’s actions fall within his obligations as president.

In Georgia, Trump is accused along with 18 accomplices of forming a criminal association with the aim of overturning the result of the 2020 presidential elections in that state.

The surprising accusation of criminal association is the same one that has been used in the past to dismantle mafia organizations. Prosecutors want to put Trump in the dock in August 2024, just three months before the new presidential elections.

At the heart of this case is the call that Trump made to Georgia’s highest electoral authority, Brad Raffensperger, days after the 2020 presidential elections, asking him to “find 11,780 votes” with which he would have taken that state from Biden. A call that Raffensperger recorded and then leaked.

In addition to the pressure on Raffensperger, prosecutors accuse Trump and his accomplices of trying to persuade Georgia lawmakers to ignore the popular will expressed at the polls and of harassing a poll worker.

In total, the former president could be sentenced to a maximum of 76 and a half years in prison.
