Trump is arguing that he is immune from prosecution for his actions while he was in the White House, the AP reported.

The United States Supreme Court is expected to decide whether Trump can be kept off the 2024 presidential ballot over a clause in the 14th Amendment for his role in the events on Jan. 6, 2021. Arguments are expected to be heard on Feb. 8, the AP reported.
