4. The only question is

will Roberts accept it, because if he does, they will side with Trump.

5. The tax filings must be more horrible than any of us can imagine. Trump is

terrified of being show the fake that he is.

7. I doubt any of them want to

throw themselves on this grenade.

The question is: will they do it anyway?

11. Doesn't RBG get to decide whether this

goes before the court? I heard this on CNN or the POTUS channel I think. I heard the ruling from the court was very narrow, and very tight, and it may not get taken up at all for that reason.

13. She can block or enforce?, any injunction from the federal district she oversees,

But cannot on her own, decide the appeal. When you appeal to the SC, the entire court hears it, and if a majority decides the appeal has merit, the court will take the case. Keep in mind, HUNDREDS of cases a year get sent up, and maybe 2 dozen merit the legal attention of the Court and actually get a full hearing.
Usually, the appeals court decision is allowed to stand. Stuff like this is settled Law, and I'm betting they dont even take it, on the argument that maybe the president is immune, but his tax firm from BEFORE his swearing in, damn sure doesnt have immunity from investigation or prosecution...especially since said firm is trying to comply with the lower courts order, and its TRUMP that wants this blocked.

My 2 cents is that Roberts is going to kick mr. pResident square in the balls, and then go do something more interesting with his workday.

12. Yeah, well that's all he does is throw lawsuits at everything.

Hoping that something might stick. It at least delays an judgement or accounting. Then he can settle.

He actually said he wants Schiff to be SUED for being a traitor. HUH?!

14. I am going to predict the Supremes sidestep

and decline to take the case.
