WATCH as Donald Trump’s lawyer argues that a US president could have a political rival assassinated by SEAL Team Six and still avoid criminal prosecution due to presidential immunity.

Attorney John Sauer made the argument on Tuesday during a hearing at a federal appeals court, claiming that a president could only be criminally prosecuted if they’ve been impeached and removed from office by Congress.

Sauer argued that because Trump wasn’t impeached and removed from office, he should be protected from criminal prosecution over his plot to overturn the 2020 presidential election and any criminal actions connected to it.
