Lex Rex: SCOTUS Saves The American Republic

TRUMP v. VANCE, DISTRICT ATTORNEY OF THE COUNTY OF NEW YORK, ET AL.

Two hundred years ago, a great jurist of our Court estab- lished that no citizen, not even the President, is categori- cally above the common duty to produce evidence when called upon in a criminal proceeding. We reaffirm that principle today and hold that the President is neither abso- lutely immune from state criminal subpoenas seeking his private papers nor entitled to a heightened standard of need. The “guard[ ] furnished to this high officer” lies where it always has—in “the conduct of a court” applying estab- lished legal and constitutional principles to individual sub- poenas in a manner that preserves both the independence of the Executive and the integrity of the criminal justice system. Burr, 25 F. Cas., at 34. – Chief Justice John Roberts
