Not a Good Feeling About This

The Supreme Court on Wednesday agreed to decide whether former President Donald Trump can be prosecuted on charges he interfered with the 2020 election, calling into question whether his case could go to trial before the November election.

The very best case scenario that I can see is that the Trumpist justices are throwing the TOFF a bone by delaying his trial until after the election. The worst case is that they are going to rule in his favor to pave the way for a right-wing autocracy.

Not all of a majority of the Supremes are full-bore right-wing hacks who put their ideology over everything else, but enough of them are to make this possible. That four of them agreed to hear their Orange God's appeal is scary enough.

Their answer is important...

They go one way and its a bad sign and people may react.
They go the other way it may trigger reaction from
a different group.

Either way its rule of law or madness.

Rachel Maddow pointed out that the whole idea is bullshit, or else why did Ford have to pardon Nixon?

True, Doug. Nixon later said that if a president does it, it's not illegal and was widely derided for that.
