Federal appeals court judges in Washington expressed deep doubt that former US President Donald Trump is immune from prosecution on charges of conspiring to overturn the results of the 2020 election.

In details, on Tuesday, Trump returned to the Federal Court in Washington to appeal the charges against him, where the three-judge panel also asked whether they had the jurisdiction to consider the appeal at this stage of the case, which raises the possibility of rejecting Trump’s efforts.

During the lengthy arguments, the justices repeatedly pressed Trump's lawyer, who was appointed to defend the claim that the former president is immune from criminal charges.

“I think it's ironic to say that his constitutional duty to make sure the laws are faithfully enforced allows him to violate the criminal law,” explained Judge Karen Lecraft Henderson, an appointee of former President George H. W. Bush.

Trump is doing everything in his power to postpone his criminal trials as long as possible, perhaps until after the polls.

Judge Tanya Chutkan, who will preside over the federal trial sessions, rejected a first request to confirm immunity in early December, considering that there is no text protecting a former president from criminal prosecution.

Billionaire Trump, who is accused in four criminal cases and is seeking the Republican Party nomination for the November 2024 elections, is supposed to be tried, starting on March 4, against the backdrop of his attempt to overturn the results of the 2020 presidential elections, which he lost to President Joe Biden.

But his lawyers are trying in every possible way to change the judicial schedule to avoid it coinciding with the presidential schedule, as the Republican Party primaries began in January and may continue until June. 

One of the arguments presented by Trump's lawyers is that he enjoys "absolute immunity" from everything he did while in the White House, and for this reason he cannot be prosecuted. They cite Supreme Court case law from the 1980s related to civil lawsuits against former President Richard Nixon.

At the present time, neither the possibility of Trump going to prison nor the possibility of his returning to the White House can be ruled out, which is an exceptional situation that he took advantage of. With every twist and turn in his long judicial process, Trump has collected huge sums of donations and advanced in opinion polls thanks to his supporters who are convinced that he is a victim of political persecution. 


The World Bank expects global economic growth to slow to its lowest level in 30 years by the end of the year

The World Bank expects global economic growth to slow to its lowest level in 30 years by the end of the year

A report by the World Bank for the month of January, on the prospects for the development of the global economy, revealed that the international organization expects the growth of the global economy in the first half of this decade to be the weakest in 30 years.

The United Nations announces the growth of the Russian economy by 2.7%
According to the report: “The current decade was supposed to be a turning point in the field of development, but, according to expectations, by the end of 2024, the global economy will record an opposite record in the growth rate of global GDP in the first half of this year.”

The report added: “On the one hand, the situation of the global economy is now better than it was a year ago, due to the reduced risk of a global recession, mainly due to the stability of the US economy. However, increasing geopolitical tensions in the near future may create new threats to the global economy.” ".

In the view of World Bank experts: “For many emerging economies, medium-term prospects have deteriorated amid slowing growth in most major economies, stagnation in global trade, and the strongest tightening of credit conditions in decades.”

The experts added: “Global trade growth in 2024 is expected to be only half the average of the decade before the pandemic, and at the same time, borrowing costs for emerging economies, especially economies with low credit ratings, are likely to remain high due to high global interest rates.” Report on interest rates for the past 40 years (inflation-adjusted).”

The World Bank expects global economic growth to continue to slow for the third year in a row this year, falling to 2.4% from 2.6% last year, nearly three-quarters of a percentage point below the 2010 average.

Therefore, the growth rate in emerging economies will not exceed 3.9%, which is “more than one percentage point lower than the average of the previous decade,” and the World Bank expects that “the economies of low-income countries, whose performance last year was disappointing, will grow by 5.5%.” (Less than previous expectations).”

The financial institution estimates that by the end of 2024, the population of almost one in four developing countries and about 40% of low-income countries will remain poorer than in 2019. At the same time, growth in advanced economies is expected to slow to 1.2%. % this year, compared to 1.5% in 2023.
