How the blockbuster Supreme Court presidential immunity ruling impacts the Biden-Trump 2024 rematch

The Supreme Court ruling you’re referring to likely concerns the 2020 case in which the Supreme Court allowed New York prosecutors to subpoena former President Trump’s financial records. This decision reinforced that no person, including a sitting president, is above the law, and overturned Trump’s claim to absolute immunity while in office.

Regarding your question, it’s difficult to say definitively how this ruling will impact a potential Biden-Trump rematch in 2024 until more specific circumstances emerge.

However, there are a few ways it could potentially influence such a contest:

1. Legal and Financial Scrutiny: Should Trump decide to run in 2024, this ruling ensures that his financial and legal issues would remain fair game for scrutiny both legally and politically. Any ongoing or new legal controversy could feature prominently in the campaign.

2. Public Opinion: The public’s perception of Trump could be influenced by the findings of any such investigations. If they were to reveal damaging information, it could negatively affect Trump’s popularity and sway voters to Biden. If no damaging information emerges, it could potentially backfire on Biden if he or his campaign were seen to be unduly focusing on Trump’s legal issues.

3. Campaign Focus: Depending on these outcomes, either candidate may choose to lean into or away from the issue. For example, if investigations become a central topic, the candidates might have to address judicial appointments and the powers of the presidency more than they otherwise would.

Remember, all these potential impacts are speculative at this point.
