3. DOJ's argument really isn't about Trump

 

It's about the Westfall Act's application to government employees.

I doubt the court will accept this argument in this case, but it's important that they make it. If they don't raise this here, they will have a hard time raising it in the future in cases much less odious than Trump's. For example, if (when) Trump or his henchmen sue Biden or Harris for something they say and do, DOJ would be hard-pressed to push back on it if they didn't raise this argument in this case.
