Trump says NY Judge Merchan ‘thinks he is above the Supreme Court’ after barring him from immunity arguments

New York Judge Arthur Engoron has reportedly barred former President Donald Trump from making immunity arguments, which has led Trump to criticize the judge calling himself ‘above the Supreme Court’. It would seem Trump is frustrated by the fact that he’s not allowed to argue for immunity from prosecution, which is a topic in the case concerning his financial records.

As a context, traditionally, while in office, the U.S. Presidents have far-reaching immunity from prosecution. Once they leave office, though, there is some legal ambiguity about how much of that immunity extends into their post-presidency. It appears that this ruling by Judge Engoron doesn’t permit Trump to argue that any existing immunity should apply to him.
