Trump argues he is immune from prosecution for conduct while he was in office.

Mike Stewart/APin New York to delay the trial, currently scheduled to begin March 25, while the U.S. Supreme Court weighs Trump's argument that he is immune from prosecution for conduct that occurred while he was in office.

Trump has not argued the charges should be dropped over the immunity claim, but that the trial be put off and prosecutors be precluded from introducing evidence.

"The People's recent proffer implicates presidential immunity because President Trump was President of the United States at the time of those actions in 2018. He made at least some of the 2018 statements at issue -- and potentially all of them, though it is hard to be sure in light of the People's vague in limine description -- in his official capacity as the nation's Chief Executive," the defense motion said.
