Supreme Court Faces 'High Stakes' Decisions On Trump-Related Cases

"With all due respect, justices, women are not without electoral or political power," President Biden said.

In doing so, the president amplified that mounting pressure on the Supreme Court, a pressure that seems to build each week as the election nears and the queue of cases related to former President Donald Trump gets longer.

The justices are taking up two major appeals related to President Trump, who is the presumptive GOP nominee and is leading President Biden in polling matchups, including in crucial battleground states.

President Trump's former advisors are also facing multiple charges, raising the prospect that some may request the high court's intervention, as former White House advisor Peter Navarro did on March 15. The court's denial made Mr. Navarro the first Trump White House adviser to end up in prison.

"This is certainly a blockbuster year for the court," Heritage Foundation Vice President John Malcolm told The Epoch Times.

"Several of the justices, most notably the Chief Justice, have been concerned about the public's perception of the court's 'legitimacy,' so it will be interesting to see how the justices respond, especially in an important election year."

'High Stakes'

The combination of several Trump-related cases, the potential for landmark changes to legal precedent, the vigorous calls for reform, and the coming elections have made 2024 a year of high impact decisions for the court.

One decision has already impacted the course of the 2024 presidential campaign.
