For years, Trump has argued in court that he was immune from criminal charges that he claimed were part of his Presidential duties.

When the court ruled this week that he does not have presidential immunity and can be prosecuted on charges of plotting to overturn the 2020 election, Trump went ballistic, calling it a “nation-destroying ruling” and urged the nation’s courts to overturn the decision ‘to avoid injuring the United States.’

“Former President Trump has now become ‘citizen’ Trump,” the panel wrote.

“We cannot accept former President Trump’s claim that a president has unbounded authority to commit crimes that would neutralize the most fundamental check on executive power – the recognition and implementation of election results,” the three-judge panel from the US Court of Appeals for the DC Circuit wrote in its opinion.
