Supreme Court to consider hearing Jan. 6 cases that could affect Trump prosecution.
WASHINGTON — The Supreme Court will soon consider whether to hear appeals brought by people charged with offenses relating to the Jan. 6, 2021, assault on the U.S. Capitol in cases that could have a major impact on the criminal prosecution of former President Donald Trump.
The court was scheduled to discuss the cases in their regular private meeting on Friday. But the meeting was canceled following the death of retired Justice Sandra Day O’Connor.
The justices will now consider the cases at a later date, possibly as soon as next Friday.
The three men are seeking to dismiss a charge accusing them of obstructing an official proceeding, namely the certification by Congress of President Joe Biden’s election victory, which was disrupted by a mob of Trump supporters.
Trump has been charged with the same offense, as well as others, in his federal election interference case. As a result, whether the court takes up the appeals or rejects them could affect his case.
If the court rejects the appeals, a lower court ruling that allowed the government to pursue the charges against the defendants would remain in place.
OUR GOVERNMENT IS CRIMINAL- JUDGEMENT IS NOT ONLY COMING, ITS HERE.
