SCOTUS is grappling with two Trump cases right now, neither of which they ever wanted anywhere near their "hallowed" chambers.  They want a way out of both the ballot access issue and Trump's weird, novel "Presidential Immunity" claim. This...
I've been watching the hearing in Fulton County, Georgia. Trump's lawyers have been going at Nathan Wade's former attorney (and law partner) Terrence Bradley. Hard. In the earlier televised hearings both Wade and DA Fani Willis emphatically denied having...
