Mary Trump Shares ‘Greatest Fear’ After SCOTUS Immunity Verdict

Following the Supreme Court’s decision on presidential immunity, Mary Trump—Donald Trump’s estranged niece—recently said in an essay that she sees a significant threat with the justice’s ruling.

In a Substack post on Thursday, she said her biggest fear before the Supreme Court ruled on presidential immunity was not that the judges would grant absolute immunity to a president but that they would, as they did the Florida recount during Bush versus Gore, use a sledgehammer and a scalpel for Trump’s benefit.

Following his federal indictment for election meddling and other criminal charges against him, the Court last week delivered its verdict in response to Trump’s assertions of presidential immunity.

The Supreme Court ruled 6-3 that while a former president has complete immunity for their official actions, they do not have any immunity for their private ones. In order to determine what constitutes official conduct, the Court remanded the case to a lower court in Washington, D.C. 

The lawsuit, brought by Jack Smith, the special counsel for the Department of Justice, centered on Trump’s attempts to reverse the 2020 election results.

An appellate court had already dismissed Trump’s claims of presidential immunity in February, but the Supreme Court’s decision reversed that judgment. The three-judge panel of the United States Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit determined that Trump is no longer protected by immunity due to his term as president ending.

Even if Trump insists he is innocent, he may still have to go to trial if the indictment’s claims about specific actions aren’t officially recognized. However, others who support him see the verdict favorably since it reduces the likelihood that the matter will be tried before the November election.

Over the years, Mary Trump has voiced her disapproval of her uncle. Thursday, she said that people must remind the Supreme Court and her uncle, who truly holds the reins of power in our nation.

She added that to announce one’s independence from the dangerous, uneducated, and extremists on the right wing, who are out to take rights and the nation away, people need to pour some tea into the harbor metaphorically.

Mary said the only thing scarier than the idea of her uncle being in the Oval Office again is the idea of the Republicans controlling the Senate and the House of Representatives.

The media claims that Donald Trump is polarizing, while his niece calls half of the country dangerous and uneducated.
