BREAKING: Trump moves to overturn NYC trial conviction, cites SCOTUS immunity decision: report

Donald J. Trump began an effort on Monday to throw out his recent criminal conviction in Manhattan and postpone his upcoming sentencing, citing the new Supreme Court ruling that granted him broad immunity from prosecution for official actions he took as president, according to a New York Times report that cited a source "with knowledge of the matter." 

Trump's legal team argued in a letter to Judge Juan Merchan that the verdict on the hush money case should be invalidated because they believe the jury was exposed to evidence during the trial that should have been shielded by presidential immunity.  

The letter will remain undisclosed until at least Tuesday, following which prosecutors will be able to provide their response. Trump's legal team has requested a delay in the sentencing set for July 11, pending Judge Juan M. Merchan's assessment of how the Supreme Court's ruling might impact the conviction.
