4. Weird that this is the case they broadcast live.

You'd think if they were going to make Trump a dictator, they'd want to do it quietly.

6. Will that be on C-SPAN?

That should be some interesting TV, even if on teleconference.

8. This is the honest to god truth,

Trump's lawyers are arguing that Trump can shoot someone on 5th Avenue, pump him full of lead and not only can't anyone arrest him, no one can even investigate him. That is the actual argument.

9. Nixon argued he didn't have to comply with a subpoena

and turn over the Watergate tapes and the SC ruled 8-0 that he did indeed have to comply with the subpoena. I mean it isn't like we don't already have precedence for this.

10. If they believe that there should be no oversight of the Executive Branch...

11. Rachel had a guest on last night who has been investigating Deutche Bank

and he believes that if the SC rules it has to turn over Trump's documents it is prepared to do so.

Rachel was opining that may be why Trump has been so owly lately.
