Re: All roads lead to SCOTUS ...
Trump will lose 9-0 at SCOTUS. Whatever the Trump appointees to SCOTUS are they are not Trump loyalists. They are some brand of Republican loyalist. They are in position, they have power and they want to use it for whatever agenda they have. But they are not attached to Trump. This will be clear vote where they can show their "independence" from Trump without harming their personal agenda at all.
Sure one or two might consider doing the crazy and voting for Trump, but only if it would lead to a win. But not enough would vote for Trump to get a win, so the point after that becomes how do they show they are not Trump lap dogs, they vote against Trump.
If Trump had any sort of case the vote would not be 9-0, but as Trump has nothing. The loss will be complete.
