The U.S. Supreme Court ruling granting Donald Trump immunity is alarming, especially for those he has threatened, such as Rep. Adam Schiff (D-Calif). Schiff, a member of the Jan. 6 select committee, has been at odds with Trump for years.

Their conflict dates back to 2019 during the White House’s Ukraine scandal, when Trump accused Schiff of fabricating a statement about his call with the Ukrainian President and called for his arrest for treason on Twitter.

Schiff expressed his concerns about Trump’s threats during an interview on NBC News’ “Meet the Press,” stating that he is indeed worried about the former president’s personal attacks. He emphasized that anyone on Trump’s enemies list should be concerned, highlighting the potential risks posed by Trump’s rhetoric and actions.

The Supreme Court’s decision to grant presidential immunity for official acts particularly troubles Schiff. He fears the ruling’s implications if Trump were to win the upcoming presidential election. Schiff pointed out that the decision effectively allows a president to act without consequence in various critical domains.

Schiff articulated his worries about the broad powers this ruling bestows upon the president. He argued that the court has essentially given Trump carte blanche to utilize the Justice Department and military without accountability. This, according to Schiff, means Trump could wield significant power with near-total immunity.

Schiff’s concerns underscore the broader implications of the Supreme Court’s ruling. He believes it sets a dangerous precedent by providing the president with extensive, potentially unchecked powers. The situation raises questions about the balance of power and the protections in place to prevent abuses by high-ranking officials.
