5. Luckily all Roberts has to do is go with judicial precedent from previous cases...

so he doesn't really have to make a decision. I think that's our best bet.

He's cutting off trump's lawyers when they do badly, and let them go on & on when they are hitting hard.

11. Listening to the oral arguments.

Kavanaugh is looking for a way to let Trump off. He is quoting Breyer's dissent in the Clinton-Jones case.

What a joke.

22. Breyer didn't dissent in Clinton v. Jones.

He wrote a concurring opinion that distinguished between criminal cases and civil cases and concluded that "I agree with the majority that there is no automatic temporary immunity and that the President should have to provide the District Court with a reasoned explanation of why the immunity is needed."

14. SCOTUS seems more concerned with PR than The Law these days.

I hope they vote 5-4 to release Trump's financials, but it'll probably go the other way...to avoid bad publicity for Republicans.

New York wins but Congress loses. I hope both win but right now I'll take any win.

28. The conservative justices face a dilemma

If they decide in favor of Trump and the hypotheticals argument, they further erode their tattered legacy and truly look to be even more partisan hacks. If they decide against Trump, there will be vengeance from the White House. Rough day at the office...

37. Yes, that is, no doubt, in the back of their minds

If they decide in favor of Trump, they are taking another giant leap toward an imperial presidency. Itís one thing when the president is from your party, but quite another when the president is from the other side. Will they take a step toward kneecapping their authority? They may. Weíll know soon enough.

35. don't depend on this slimy SCOTUS

 

They will find some deceptive way to support slimeball Trump. Those conservatives on the court are sinister.

That's why it was so vital to get Biden as the candidate( stupid progressives hear that) so the SCOTUS can be ballanced again or even just a small minority of Liberals maintained on it.

41. Wanna' bet?

Been down this road too many times. Even here: ďThe lawyers/legal system/courts - got thisĒ!

Bunk. Judge Walton was a disaster with Manafort. Mueller was a HUGE disaster. Judge Sullivan has been very good but now neutered by Bill Barr.

How many DoJ prosecutors resigned over Roger Stone? How many THOUSANDS of lawyers and FORMER DoJ career lawyers have screamed about Stone and Flynn? And got...what?

There is a reason the Reich spends more time packing the courts than they do on tax cuts.

PS: SCOTUS today heard the case of Congressí demand for Trumpís tax returns. From what I have read so far, Iím betting Trump, 5:4 decision.

Care to bet...?
