Afederal appeals court on Tuesday unanimously rejected former President Donald Trump’s claim that he is immune from prosecution in the D.C. election subversion case.

A three-judge panel of the U.S. Circuit Courts of Appeals for the District of Columbia in a 57-page opinion found that there is no basis for Trump to assert blanket immunity for all acts committed as president.

“We cannot accept that the office of the Presidency places its former occupants above the law for all time thereafter,” the judges wrote.

“For the purpose of this criminal case, former President Trump has become citizen Trump, with all of the defenses of any other criminal defendant. But any executive immunity that may have protected him while he served as President no longer protects him against this prosecution,” the opinion said.
