Trump does not have immunity, US court rules

Washington Correspondent

In the US, a federal appeals court has ruled that Donald Trump does not have immunity from charges that he plotted to overturn the 2020 election result.

He had argued he could not be prosecuted for alleged crimes committed while he was president.

It’s a major blow for Mr Trump – who’s trying to avoid a trial on charges that he undermined American democracy and the transfer of power.
