D.C. Circuit Hears Arguments in Blassingame v. Trump
On Dec. 7, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit heard oral arguments in Blassingame v. Trump, regarding whether former President Donald Trump should receive absolute civil immunity for allegations related to his Jan. 6, 2021 “Save America” rally and his conduct surrounding the subsequent attack on the Capitol. Trump appealed the D.C. district court’s February ruling on this issue, which did not grant him immunity.
