Will the Supreme Court rule that a President has "limited" immunity? [View all]

Because all they need to do is give Trump an inch and he will take a mile.

How can we forget how the Mueller Report gave him "full exoneration" and Mueller had to come out and say that was not the case?

The wording of the Supreme Court ruling will be very important.

Will they give Trump just enough "immunity" so he can spin it any way he wants?
