yeah I was a little fuzzy on that but you hit the nail on the head ... remember Sen McConnell? What is his mission? .... yep pack the federal courts with ideologues who will sustain anything conservative. If you don't give up Mr Trump ... can you spell quid pro quo ....

It all depends on what the majority of the Supreme Court Justices are: Conservatives or Republicans. Trump thinks he has five Republicans. I think he has maybe two. Conservative Justices defend the constitution. When Trump goes to court attacking some constitutional issue like the House's right to investigate, I think he's going to lose.

This is a fundamental flaw in Trump's "us versus them" concept of government. Most people actually have standards and know right from wrong. Some people are sociopaths, but they make up less than 10% of the population. Even Dexter had scruples, and that show was wildly popular. I almost feel sorry for that lawyer who argued in court not to give immigrant kids soap, toothbrushes, and beds. That dead albatross is going to hang around her neck for the rest of her career.

Some folks love the smell of albatross and dead brown children.

Conservatives.

Death lifts them up and tears sustain them.

Justices uphold precedent backing government regulators

Conservatives HATE that courts have to recognize the expertise present in government agencies. And Roberts voted with the four liberals to uphold it. He also saved ACA! I think Roberts dedication to stare decisis, and even Gorsuch's civil libertarianism, gives us a Supreme Court that isn't a majority of Trump fans all wearing MAGA hats and doing his bidding.

But they also ruled that federal courts have no say in partisan gerrymandering.
