President Donald Trump and his crack legal team scored a massive victory this week at the hands of the U.S. Supreme Court.ย 

According to Breitbart, the Supreme Court granted Trump's request "to decide if he is immune from prosecution on charges of attempting to overturn the results of the 2020 election."

The high court's decision in deciding the matter gives Trump and his lawyers a new breath of hope that the case could ultimately go away and, at the very least, delay the upcoming trial indefinitely.

Special Counsel Jack Smith and his prosecutors were presumably devastated by the high court's decision, as it leaves open the possibility that Trump could prevail in the end.

The high court's decision

Breitbart reported that the Supreme Court will consider "Whether and if so to what extent does a former President enjoy presidential immunity from criminal prosecution for conduct alleged to involve official acts during his tenure in office.โ€

The high court's order stated that the arguments will be held starting on April 22, which already delayed Smith's trial -- a major blow to the prosecution. Smith had requested an "expedited" ruling.

Additionally, the Supreme Court instructed "the appellate court to keep Special Counsel Jack Smithโ€™s case against Trump paused until the Supreme Court reaches a decision on the immunity matter."

Legal scholar and attorney Jonathan Turley weighed in on the high court's order, noting what it means for the prosecution.

"The order setting argument on immunity for April 22 is a blow to Smith on the calendar. Rather than granting a stay, it has constructively created such a stay by scheduling the argument. Keep in mind, even if Smith prevails, pre-trial work must wait for the return of the mandate," Turley wrote on X.

Liberal rage ensues

In the wake of the decision, all of the usual liberal media hacks reacted with rage and utter shock.

Leftist Elie Mystal was one of many of Trump's critics who had a complete meltdown on-air during an MSNBC interview. He called on the White House to intervene.

"At some point people in the media people at home and people sitting in the White House have to stop pretending that the Supreme Court is some kind of benign trying to do its best institution and start to realize that there are six Republicans not conservatives Republicans on the Supreme Court who view it as their job to help the Republican Party," Mystal said in his meltdown.

He continued his rant, "And until we do something about that until we take away that power until we draw the line on them there they will continue to do this."
