An imminent Supreme Court showdown looms for former President Donald Trump as he grapples with legal battles over his claims of immunity from prosecution, sparking dire warnings of potential consequences akin to granting unchecked power to a dictatorship, according to an expert.

Following a ruling by a federal appeals panel on Tuesday that paved the way for Trump to face trial on charges related to his alleged efforts to overturn the 2020 election results, despite his assertions of immunity, Trump’s legal team has vowed to pursue an appeal, potentially prolonging the case by weeks or even months. The possibility of the case eventually reaching the Republican-dominated Supreme Court has raised alarm bells among analysts and scholars.

Professor Inderjeet Parmar, who serves as the head of the Department of International Politics at the City, University of London, emphasized the gravity of the situation, highlighting the potential seismic implications for the United States and its political landscape. Speaking to The Mirror US, Parmar underscored the composition of the Supreme Court, noting the significant influence of the six-justice conservative majority, including three justices appointed by Trump during his tenure as president.

However, Parmar cautioned against assumptions that the court’s conservative leanings would automatically favor Trump’s claims of immunity. He warned of the profound ramifications of a ruling that would shield a former president from prosecution for alleged criminal offenses committed while in office, stressing that such a decision would fundamentally undermine the principles of the rule of law and equality before the law.

In dire terms, Parmar painted a picture of the potential consequences, likening it to granting carte blanche for dictatorial powers, where the president could arbitrarily determine whose votes are counted and whose are not, as evidenced by Trump’s post-November 2020 actions.

Expressing grave concern over the impact on America’s global standing, Parmar lamented the spectacle unfolding before the world’s eyes, which he argued has eroded confidence in American leadership and sowed further division and instability domestically.

Trump’s legal woes stem from actions taken during his presidency, including the tumultuous events leading up to January 6, 2021, when a mob of his supporters stormed the U.S. Capitol. The recent rulings by judges have reaffirmed the legal basis for prosecuting Trump in connection with these events, marking a significant setback for the former president’s legal defense.

Responding to the court’s decisions, Trump took to his Truth Social platform to decry the erosion of presidential immunity, warning of the potential diminishment of the presidency’s power and stature if held accountable for actions taken while in office, echoing concerns about the balance of power among branches of government.
