Several of the injured have life-threatening injuries. The motive for the shooting is currently unknown.

Special investigator asks Supreme Court to allow election trial against Trump to begin

Special investigator Jack Smith is asking the U.S. Supreme Court to reject former President Donald Trump’s claim that he has immunity in the federal election influence lawsuit against him.

Additionally, Smith calls for the trial against Trump to begin as soon as possible. Earlier this week, Trump’s defenders asked the Supreme Court to postpone the trial, arguing that he was immune from the charges because he was president during the period in question.

– The nation has a strong interest in having the charges dealt with in court, Smith wrote in his request. He further points out that this would be in the public interest, as “a former president was accused of conspiring to undermine the electoral process, so that he could remain in power.”
