U.S. appeals court rules against Trump's presidential immunity claim in Jan 6 case, paving the way for trial....By Clevelandurbannewscom, Ohio's Black digital news leader

WASHINGTON, D.C.— A U.S. federal appeals court three-judge panel in Washington, D.C.  ruled against former President Donald Trump on Tuesday, paving the way for a celebrated  trial on charges that he illegally sought to overturn the results of the 2020 election and tossing his claim and that of his lawyers that  he is  immune from prosecution.

Trump has vowed to appeal to the U.S. Supreme court where three of the nine justices are his appointments and it is not clear whether the high court will take up the case.

Prosecutors say the former president orchestrated events that led to the Jan 6 2021 Capitol riot. His attorneys say he is innocent and immune from prosecution relative to  actions occurring while he was president.

In a case of first impression, the appeals court discarded every argument raised by Trump's legal team and ruled that neither Trump nor any other president has unbounded authority or presidential immunity to commit crimes in office free from prosecution.

The  57-page appeals court decision that is unanimous and cites case law back to the 1800s comes as the 2024 presidential election nears with Trump the front-runner for the Republican nomination and current Democratic president Joe Biden seeking reelection as the likely Democratic nominee.  

The former president still faces trials in several other jurisdictions on a host of  criminal charges,  including in Florida as to his Mar-a-Lago estate classified documents case, and the New York case involving hush money to former porn operative Stormy Daniels.

Chief and unfair Cuyahoga County Judge John Russo loses authority-Part 2 of a multi-part series on Cuyahoga County public corruption: New Ohio law on seeking possible removal of a municipal court judge in a case for bias or conflict via the filing of an affidavit of prejudice takes authority to decide from chief Cuyahoga County Presiding Judge John Russo, other chief common pleas judges in Ohio, and hands it to the chief justice of the Ohio Supreme Court, who also determines affidavits of prejudice filed against common pleas, probate, juvenile, domestic relations, and state appellate court judges....Most affidavits of prejudice are denied regardless of the merits and some judges complained of will retaliate, data show... Community activists, led by Cleveland activist Kathy Wray Coleman of the Imperial Women Coalition, lobbied the Cleveland NAACP for support and asked state legislators via state Rep Bill Patmon (D-10) of Cleveland to change the law but wanted a panel of judges and others to decide when a judge in Ohio is disqualified from hearing a case for bias or conflict....Coleman says she has since been further harassed by Chief Cuyahoga County Judge John Russo, who is White and leads a racist and sexist common pleas court fueled with corruption, malicious prosecutions, excessive criminal bonds, ineffective assistance of counsel to poor and Black defendants, and the mass incarceration of the Black community....By www.clevelandurbannews.com and www.kathywraycolemanonlinenewsblog.com, Ohio's most read digital Black newspapers....This is part 2 of a multi-part series on Cuyahoga County public corruption
