CHIEF JUSTICE ROBERTS OF THE SUPREME COURT STEPPED IN ON A DC APPEALS COURT ORDER REJECTING A FOREIGN COMPANY'S POSITION THAT IT COULD NOT BE FORCED TO PRODUCE DOCUMENTS OR BE HELD IN CONTEMPT OF COURT AND PAY FINES.
It seems to be agreed that this case is part of the Mueller investigation.
There is a great deal of secrecy in this matter because the floor of the D C Appeals court hearing the motion was closed off during the hearing. This is a very big deal.
Trump's lawyers say it does not involve Trump and this may technically be true at this point but the company would seem to be in some way connected to the Trump Organization and Trump and his children.
In other words, if a reporter knew the name of the foreign company, the potential link to Trump would be obvious. No foreign corporation not connected to the President would require such high security.
We may well be on the doorstep of whether a sitting President can be indicted or forced to testify to a grand jury.
The Chief Justice would want to buy some time to consider the potential indictment of Trump and grand jury issues that are going to follow his decision, or the full court's decision. So I do not think the Chief Justice has any doubt how the Supreme Court is going to rule, but that ruling will be so explosive he has to have some time to consider all the ramifications and fallout because this will probably be a constitutional crisis..
The decision seemed to be pretty cut and dried to the DC Appeals Court.
Further, we have to consider that Trump staying in Washington waiting on a response to the border wall does not merit Trump staying in Washington. But a decision by the Supreme Court in this matter could mean that Trump would be on the fast track to the end of his presidency. Now that would hold Trump in Washington to talk with his lawyers. What this means is that the Mueller Investigation could get real hot and move real fast after the first of the year.
I also think that the Chief Justice needs to decide on this matter before the Democrats take over on January 3. If he does not, he is going to lose control to the Democrats and the media who will put it on the top of the news for a week or maybe more.
There is another factor that I have been saying for two years. Trump cannot afford to resign. He must have the power to pardon in order to save himself and his family. So Trump is going to have to ride out whatever is coming at him and pray for a miracle.
Like an article I read the other day said, "No one expected Nixon to fold so fast. But once Nixon knew there was no way out he had to look for the path that would not crash his whole life."
After two years, this may be where Trump is. He is staying in Washington to use every spare minute to try to get all the potential scenarios on the table.
I also agree with Comey that this whole Trump matter needs to play out in the open. If any of it is kept behind closed doors or if Trump resigns too soon his base is going to start a conspiracy theory that a coup has taken place in Washington.
Again, I dont think this is going to come to a head and close fast because Trump must protect himself and his children. It is not just about him. He has involved his children in his administration which was stupid and now they are going to hold him in place; tied to the railroad tracks as the train is barrelling down on him. He is the deer in the headlights. Frozen. Not knowing whether to pull his pants down or go blind.
