Biden says Supreme Court ruling on immunity means 'no limits' on presidential actions

President Joe Biden delivered remarks on Monday condemning the U.S. Supreme Court's ruling that granted broad immunity to Donald Trump and other presidents from prosecution.

Biden said the public has a "right to know" Trump's role in the Jan. 6, 2021, insurrection, which likely won't be revealed until after the election.

Biden condemned the ruling, stating that the Supreme Court's decision on immunity means "there are virtually no limits" on a president's actions.

"I know I will respect the limits of presidential power as I have for the past three and a half years, but any president, including Donald Trump, will now be free to ignore the law," he said.

Biden made no mention of the debate or his performance.

The ruling extends the delay in the Washington criminal case against ex-President Donald Trump on charges he plotted to overturn his 2020 election loss, reducing the likelihood that Trump could be tried before the November election.

The justices have ordered the trial judge to determine how to apply the decision to the Republican ex-president’s case. Justice Sonia Sotomayor criticized the ruling, saying it undermines the principle that no one is above the law. Trump called it a big win.

Biden's campaign previously stated that the ruling "doesn’t change the facts" about the events of Jan. 6.

Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer denounced the ruling as "a disgraceful decision," influenced by the three justices Trump appointed.

"It undermines SCOTUS’s credibility and suggests political influence trumps all in our courts today," the New York Democrat said on X.
