The Supreme Court is set to hear a seemingly minor case later this month on the status of administrative judges at the Securities and Exchange Commission, an issue that normally might only draw the interest of those accused of stock fraud.

But the dispute turns on the president's power to hire and fire officials throughout the government. And it comes just as the White House is saying President Trump believes he has the power to fire special counsel Robert S. Mueller III.

Trump's Solicitor Gen. Noel Francisco intervened in the SEC case to urge the high court to clarify the president's constitutional power to fire all "officers of the United States" who "exercise significant authority" under the law.

"The Constitution gives the president what the framers saw as the traditional means of ensuring accountability: the power to oversee executive officers through removal," he wrote in Lucia vs. SEC.

1. Is there any chance

that the "Not So" Supreme Court will actually protect regular people (not gop) again? Their bias was so obvious during President Obama's tenure. Now we have a low life, wanna be Mafia boss in the WH they really should shape up. tRump shuffles into the WH in his ill fitting suits, with his laughable hair do, and he is treated like a legitimate person, instead of the crook he is.

Unitary executive is a fiction.

4. I suspect the Court won't address trump/francisco's request

as asked. Supremes don't like to overstep/do more than necessary to address the issue outside the bounds of the issue presented.
