    Trump's saying "the committee’s subpoena is invalid because it has no power of investigation. And it says the material should be protected by executive privilege."
    In an 8 to 1 vote, the Supreme Court says executive privilege is not applicable.

    Which means the three Justices put on the Court by Trump (Gorsuch, Kegger Kavanaugh, Amy Covid Barrett) ruled against him. Damn sure didn’t think THAT would happen.

    She helped fund the rally. Her political activities should have taken Thomas off the Court decades ago. Not to mention her financial entanglements

    I did. Roberts is very serious about making sure the court is seen as unbiased and credible. He knows it's an institution that there is not much to protect it if they do something insanely unpopular and the government ignores it.

    There's really no legal ground to stop this for Trump.

    If SCOTUS was Trump’s Hail Mary play to keep those documents away from the 1/6 commission, then he’s in trouble.

    If there was any rule limiting the political activities of judge's spouses, she would likely be smart enough to stick to the letter of the law.

    Snopes suggests there's no evidence she funded the rally.

    It does get messy to restrict the political activities of adults just because of who they're married to. What should the exact standard be?

    Not endorsing sedition would be good.

    And following the law would be also good.

    It means that there literally was no legal grounds other than "my wife helped the coup attempt and I will have to sleep on the sofa if I don't support Trump here."

    The FBI has searched both the home and campaign office of Democratic Congressman Henry Cuellar.

    I heard about that last night, but there isn't any other public information regarding why. What is the FBI investigating and who exactly are they investigating.

    “African American voters are voting in just as high a percentage as Americans," said Senator Mitch McConnell. You have got to see it to believe it.


    He said it out loud - African-Americans are not Americans. That is the attitude of Mitch McConnell and other Republicans like him.
