    Yeah, not quite the same situation as Bush v. Gore. Having the SC follow its normal procedure is fine here. There's not really a pressing need to expedite this.

    Guess I just slightly disagree, and will post this to return to in a couple months. There is a very pressing need to expedite.

    The grand jury indictment in the Special Counsel's case charged him with:
    conspiracy to defraud the United States;
    conspiracy to obstruct an official proceeding;
    obstruction of and attempt to obstruct an official proceeding;
    and conspiracy against rights.

    The defendant is asserting absolute immunity to do those things (if proven) as president of the United States.

    That question could have been taken up by the Supreme Court in December, instead of running through the appellate court, and we would be where we are now...without giving in to his desire for delay. The delay could push trial out past the election date, where if he controls the executive branch he can shut down the process.
    ...he went up late, and I was already up there.

    Besides all of this being total and complete bullshit, maybe your guys should've acted a year or two earlier, eh?? They purposely waited to martyr Trump during the election year, thinking they could maximize their impact on the election. Funny thing is, the majority of Americans see right thru this, and know this is an exercise in destroying "democracy". Trump's numbers keep going up. You guys are real smart!

    He only gets 60% of the republican vote. As we know, the independents win elections.

    Then why is he ahead against Biden in nearly every swing state?

    I know most of you libs can't think beyond your next meal, but you will rue the day if SCOTUS says that Trump/POTUS has no immunity, and Jack wins his case (though to be clear, Trump will definitely win on appeal). Republicans will be coming hard at all of your benchwarmers. It just won't be POTUS who doesn't have immunity. Think sanctuary cities and states. Think about illegals who murdered someone who lives in a sanctuary city or state, or was let go after a crime in a sanctuary city or state. You have major exposure to illegal activities. That's just one example.

    Remember that fleeting victory Harry Reid delivered for you a few years back? How did that go for Merrick Garland?

    This has to be health related; he would have been about to be Senate Majority Leader given that the GOP will likely pick up multiple Senate seats this cycle.

    How old is Schumer? Can't imagine he's in his 80s like McConnell.
