Ex-President Donald Trump revealed that he will attend his court hearing for the Jan. 6 Case. Trump made this information public through an X post on Monday morning. The post reads, “I will be attending the the Federal Appeals Court Arguments on Presidential Immunity in Washington, D.C., on Tuesday.” 

Trump has two active lawsuits against him. The lawsuit was referring to in his Monday X post is the one looking to prosecute the former president for his involvement in the Jan. 6 incursion. 

According to Trump, he will appear at the Washington D.C. Court of Appeals for a hearing. The case is a treason-related lawsuit calling for Trump’s prosecution for an offense he allegedly committed during his time in office. However, Trump insists that he was operating under the full coverage of immunity that comes with the presidency. 

Trump will also have to appear in New York for the closing arguments of his civil fraud trial. Attorney General Letitia James of New York filed the lawsuit against Trump. According to the case file, the Trump Organization was involved in “numerous acts of fraud and misrepresentation.”

During a recent press briefing, Attorney James clarified rumours suggesting the litigation is a political spectacle. However, James insists that the nation’s laws call to book the fraudulent activities of the Trump Organization and, by extension, Donald Trump himself. 

Summarily, the second lawsuit involves allegations of inflation in financial statements by Trump. The lawsuit claims that the defendant committed the offenses over a decade and unlawfully earned about $370 million from the said activities.

However, Trump’s Jan. 6 case will set a precedence on decisions about criminal offenses by a sitting president. The ex-president would be the first POTUS to be indicted for criminal offenses committed during their presidency. 

The lawsuit before the Washington Court of Appeals basically accuses Trump of engaging in activities that frustrated the constitutional and peaceful transition of power after a presidential election. So, the plaintiffs are accusing Ex-President Trump of deliberately trying to compromise the U.S. democracy.

Jack Smith, a special counsel on Trump’s J6 case, has approached the Supreme Court. Smith wants the higher court to intervene in the ongoing case at the appellate. In a statement, he clarifies that the Supreme Court would not allow the case to drag out for too long. So, in a petition, Smith and his team requested that the Supreme Court take up the case and pass a full and final judgment on whether acquittal or conviction. However, the higher court declined the request.

So far, Trump has pleaded not guilty to complicity in trying to overturn the results of the 2020 elections.

Meanwhile, many citizens with some direct involvement with the Jan. 6 invasion of the U.S. Capitol and other incursions are mostly behind bars. Still, Trump insists on doing no wrong. According to him, his present legal woes are the doings of his political persecutors.
