Preserve Accountability: No Absolute Immunity for Presidents

To: Sen. Merkley, Rep. Salinas, Sen. Wyden

The recent concerns raised by J. Michael Luttig, a former federal judge, regarding the potential for former President Trump to evade accountability for alleged crimes related to the 2020 election insurrection attempt, are deeply troubling. Luttig's analysis suggests that the Supreme Court's focus on future consequences of prosecuting presidents may inadvertently enable Trump to avoid trial. This could set a dangerous precedent, allowing future presidents to commit crimes with impunity. It is crucial to uphold the principle that no individual, regardless of their position, is above the law. Therefore, it is requested that the Supreme Court justices consider the long-term implications of their decisions and deny any claims of absolute immunity. This is not about partisan politics, but about preserving the integrity of our justice system for future generations.
