Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene, R-Ga., said Wednesday that she hopes the Supreme Court will protect presidential immunity when it hears the arguments on former President Donald Trump's immunity claims in special counsel Jack Smith's D.C. election case.

"I'm very happy that this is going to the Supreme Court where I think we can expect good results, and I really hope to see the Supreme Court protect presidential immunity," Greene said on the "Just the News, No Noise" TV show. 

The Supreme Court agreed to hear arguments in the case on Wednesday, at Smith's request. Proceedings in the lower court will remain paused while the court makes its decision.

Oral arguments are set for April 22, according to Politico.

Smith indicted Trump in August of last year on charges of conspiracy to defraud, conspiracy to obstruct an official proceeding, obstruction of, and attempt to obstruct an official proceeding, and conspiracy against rights. He has pleaded not guilty to all counts.

Trump has argued he is immune from prosecution on grounds of presidential immunity. 

Greene also expressed doubt about the merits of the case.

"There should be no court case and it's a shame what's happening to President Trump," Greene said. "It's outrageous. This is not the America that we all grew up in, and know and love."
