In a history-making decision on Thursday, the Supreme Court ruled President Donald Trump cannot claim “absolute immunity” from criminal investigation while in office and may need to comply with a New York grand jury subpoena seeking his personal financial records.
“The court found that the president is not above the law. He is not immune to the ordinary criminal process,” said Claire Finkelstein, director of the Center for Ethics and Rule of Law at the University of Pennsylvania. ABC News Reports
