Highlights: Trump Appeals Immunity Ruling for Jan. 6 - Breaking Hour. Donald Trump has announced that he will appeal the ruling of a Washington judge who denied him immunity in trial. The tycoon's legal team says allegations that he conspired to thwart Joe Biden's victory in 2020 should be dismissed for two reasons. First, for presidential immunity. Second, because Trump was acquitted of impeachment in Congress, the trial would violate the principle of 'double jeopardy' under which a defendant cannot be tried twice for the same crime.

Donald Trump has announced that he will appeal the ruling of a Washington judge who denied him immunity in the trial for his role in the Jan. 6, 2021, assault on the Capitol and the attempt to overturn the 2020 election.
This is a minor procedural step, but one that could delay the process. The tycoon's legal team says allegations that he conspired to thwart Joe Biden's victory in 2020 should be dismissed for two reasons.
First, for presidential immunity. Second, because Trump was acquitted of impeachment in Congress, the trial would violate the principle of 'double jeopardy' under which a defendant cannot be tried twice for the same crime. But Washington Judge Tanya Chutkan rejected these claims. The first hearing of the federal trial is set for March 4 in the American capital.
