Members Sign Amicus Brief in US v. Trump

January 2, 2024

Society members and leadership were a party to this amicus brief filed on December 23, 2023 in the United States District Court for the District of Columbia.

In the matter of United States of America v. Donald J. Trump, the brief argues that the former president’s request that the court “grant him immunity from federal criminal prosecution for all official acts he took while he occupied the Presidency … has no basis in our constitutional text, structure, or history” and “cannot be squared with the Constitution’s text or history.”

Board President George Conway and Charter Member Trevor Potter signed the brief. Read it here.
