The sources say that the move was advised to him by his attorney. The case is very tense and potentially can prevent him for taking part in the upcoming presidential 2024 elections which would basically mean that Joe Biden's reelection is extremely propable. What, this time is Donald Trump trying to do? Read below in order to find out.

And appoitment of Special Counsel Jack Smith

Special Counsel Jack Smith has made an appoitment regarding the case of the classified documents misuse of Donald Trump who allegedly has taken them where, to put it in a simple and understandable manner, where he sould not have been taking them.

The lawyers of Donald Trump are trying their best and every possible law maneuver and trick in order to help his client and save his plans of running in the elections. This time, that stated that the appointment made by Special Counsel Jack Smith is illegal. How come?

They claim that the appointment contradicts another United States federal law, and the law is the one bout the immunity of the president.

Allegedely, that is what Special Counsel Jack Smith claims, the doucments Trump kept in his Florida mansion where containing... information about the U.S. nuclear program and potential domestic vulnerabilities. Yes, the case is really about it, you've read this right.

Immunity claim and Trump's attorneys

Trump now wants to use his immunity to claim that he is immune to both any state and federal laws. The prosecutors claim that it is a severe misuse of the immunity law and that the statements of Trump regarding the case are extremely inaccurate.

Earlier this month the three-judge panel in Washington has dismissed his claims and stated (we quote after the CNN) that:

It would be a striking paradox if the President, who alone is vested with the constitutional duty to ‘take Care that the Laws be faithfully executed,’ were the sole officer capable of defying those laws with impunity.

The attorneys of Trump answered as follows (again quoting after the CNN):

The D.C. Circuit’s analysis is not persuasive for many of the reasons and President Trump is pursuing further review of that erroneous decision including … review in the U.S. Supreme Court if necessary.

The case is extremely interesting and we have to wait until the further steps are taken.
