Washington, D.C. - House Republican Conference Chairwoman Elise Stefanik released the following statement:

"The U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit ruling that President Donald Trump does not have immunity from prosecution sets a dangerous precedent, violates our Constitution, and threatens the very bedrock of our nation. President Trump's actions surrounding election integrity were within his official duties as the President as he was investigating legitimate Constitutional questions about the election. The precedent set today by the D.C. Circuit's decision means that future presidents who leave office will likely face politicized prosecutions by the opposing party. The President of the United States must have immunity, like Members of Congress and federal judges, which is necessary for any presidency to function properly. I fully support President Trump's efforts to appeal this unconstitutional ruling to the Supreme Court, where I expect a thoughtful decision to overturn this dangerous precedent."
