Fox News contributor and George Washington University law professor Jonathan Turley laid out two big “torpedoes” that could hurt Jack Smith’s case against former President Donald Trump.

Trump appeared in court Tuesday for oral arguments before a three-judge panel. The former president’s legal team is arguing that he cannot be tried again because he was acquitted in his second impeachment trial and that Trump is immune because he was acting within his official capacity as president.

“There is a number of torpedoes in the water here. One is time, which you mentioned. Most of us expressed skepticism about the March 4th date. It seems even less likely now if that date is missed, can they get a trial in before the election? Keep in mind this is a motivated panel that is likely to issue an opinion quickly. But the Trump campaign can ask for review en banc for the full court and then they can go to the Supreme Court and that will eat up the clock,” Turley explained.
