Sotomayor's Dissent: 'Fear for Our Democracy'

Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor, joined by Justices Kagan and Jackson, expressed strong dissent in a ruling that granted former President Donald Trump immunity from criminal prosecution for official acts during his presidency. Sotomayor's closing statement, 'With fear for our democracy, I dissent,' highlighted her concern that the decision undermines the principle that no one is above the law. The ruling, which was decided by a 6-3 majority, has sparked widespread discussion and concern among legal experts and the public, with many viewing it as a significant and potentially dangerous precedent.
