Donald Trump To Have Dinner With Supreme Court Justices

Source: Huffington Post

President Donald Trump will sit down for dinner with the justices of the U.S. Supreme Court on Thursday evening, according to the White House.

Itís not clear whether all members of the court will attend, but newly confirmed Justice Neil Gorsuch, whom Trump nominated, is expected to join the president, the White House said on Sunday.

While such a gathering between the members of the executive and the judicial branch may seem unusual, itís not unprecedented. President-elect Barack Obama and Vice President-elect Joe Biden paid a visit to the Supreme Court in January 2008, just days before assuming office.

...

On Sunday, Sen. Brian Schatz (D-Hawaii) noted the meeting could present potential conflicts of interest, since the Trump administration is involved in several legal battles concerning presidential power and immigration this year ― including a challenge to Trumpís travel ban from a federal judge in Hawaii.

1. He's out to bamboozle everybody

I hope the justices are not amused, all of them, say what you will, professional jurists
who ought to recognize when they're being played

What's he going to say?

"Your people should talk to my people"?

3. Wouldn't it be delish if only Gorsuch accepted!

I can just see the orange one blowing a gasket.

That said, Thomas and alito are definitely going.

10. Justice Asterisk will need to step down

15. Postponed "indefinitely" because of "scheduling conflict"

I think the scheduling conflict coincides with the justice's lifetime appointments.
