Trump demands feds drop criminal cases after Supreme Court ‘SPANKING’

Former President Donald Trump Tuesday demanded that all the criminal cases against him be dropped after the Supreme Court delivered what he called a “high-level SPANKING” of Special Counsel Jack Smith.

Continuing his victory lap after the conservative justices gave him a big victory, Trump called on Attorney General Merrick Garland to order an end to the prosecutions for seeking to overturn the 2020 election and improperly taking hundreds of classified documents to his Mar-a-Lago estate.

“The Supreme Court gave (Smith) a high level SPANKING!” Trump wrote after midnight Tuesday on his social media site. “Garland ought to call an end to this never ending hoax, and let people focus on bringing back greatness to America.”

A lawyer for Trump also asserted late Monday that the former president’s so-called “fake electors” scheme to stay in power after losing the vote to President Joe Biden was an “official act,” meaning it would not be subject to criminal prosecution.

“We believe the assembly of those alternate slates of electors was an official act of the presidency,” attorney Will Scharf said CNN.

A divided Supreme Court ruled that former presidents are immune from criminal prosecutions for official acts carried out during their time in office.

The conservative 6-3 majority said presidents can only be charged for private acts taken during their time in the White House, and ordered District Court Judge Tanya Chutkan to determine what that edict could mean for the federal Jan. 6 case filed by Smith.

It’s unknown when Chutkan might hold proceedings as ordered by the court or what form such a process would take.

Smith has not yet commented on the ruling or said how he intends to proceed with the Trump cases.

President Biden said Monday that he disagrees with the ruling because it effectively gives the president unchecked power to commit crimes as long as they can be framed as official acts.
