Adding to the fallout, defense attorneys for Donald Trump on Friday told the judge in the Mar-a-Lago case that the Supreme Court’s immunity decision “guts” Jack Smith’s “no immunity” arguments and, as a result, they said the case should mostly be put on hold.

In a notice of supplemental authority submitted to U.S. District Judge Aileen Cannon, the Trump team contends that the Supreme Court has helped the former president on multiple fronts.

Trump guts the [Special Counsel’s] Office’s position that President Trump has ‘no immunity’ and further demonstrates the politically-motivated nature of their contention that the motion is ‘frivolous,”” the filing said. “Trump also confirms that the Office cannot rely on ‘official acts’ evidence” in the Espionage Act case.
