Looking back on Bush v. Gore as Supreme Court considers another election case

NBC's Pete Williams reports from outside the Supreme Court in Washington in this Dec. 4, 2000 file photo. The Supreme Court's stunning decision that all but declared George Bush president provoked warnings that the court had grievously wounded itself with partisan divisions. A year later, those fears seem unfounded and there is no sign of enmity among the justices. (Dennis Cook/AP)

The Supreme Court will hear arguments later this month over whether former President Donald Trump has immunity from prosecution on charges that he tried to overturn the 2020 election. It’s the second case about Trump this term that could impact the election.

Here & Now‘s Scott Tong speaks with Joan Biskupic, CNN senior Supreme Court analyst and author of “Nine Black Robes: Inside the Supreme Court’s Drive to the Right and Its Historic Consequences,” out in paperback April 16.
