( – Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC) expressed on CNN’s “State of the Union” that he anticipates the Supreme Court will remand former President Trump’s case regarding presidential immunity to lower courts for further examination.

Graham speculated that the Supreme Court will acknowledge the existence of presidential immunity for Trump, as it does for all presidents, provided the actions in question are within the bounds of presidential duties. He suggested the lower courts will likely need to delineate which of Trump’s actions are covered by presidential immunity and which are personal.

Last week, the Supreme Court deliberated on whether Trump is entitled to immunity from criminal prosecution in relation to the federal case concerning the events of January 6th, as presented by special counsel Jack Smith. The justices seemed receptive to the notion of granting some level of immunity to the former president, a decision that could potentially postpone the ongoing criminal proceedings against him.

Graham commented that Trump’s immunity might be recognized to a certain extent but clarified that the Constitution does not provide absolute immunity. He argued that the legal scrutiny should ensure the president’s protection without turning the country into what he described as a “banana republic” where political adversaries are routinely prosecuted. He emphasized the need for a thorough legal and factual evaluation to determine the applicability of immunity.

Graham also criticized the multiple lawsuits against Trump as being politically motivated and examples of selective prosecution. He contended that most Americans are more concerned with their own challenges, such as inflation, crime, and border issues, rather than Trump’s legal issues. According to him, public opinion polls indicate that personal economic and safety concerns are more influential to voters than the legal troubles of the former president.
