REVERE, MA — Democratic Whip Katherine Clark (MA-5) released the following statement on the Supreme Court’s decision regarding presidential immunity:

“With today’s decision, the Supreme Court has abdicated its responsibility to unequivocally declare that in America, no one is above the law. This decision undermines a founding principle — that we are a country of laws and accountability, not absolute power and privilege. 

“The Court had the opportunity to affirm the sanctity of the peaceful transfer of power. In failing to do so, the majority makes a mockery of America’s democratic system and further undercuts the credibility of the Supreme Court — demonstrating once again that the MAGA Justices are more loyal to partisan politics than the rule of law."
