In an 8-to-1 ruling the Supreme Court said Trump can’t claim executive privilege over documents sought by those investigating the insurrection

At issue were two conflicting claims of presidential privilege. The sitting president, Joe Biden, does not consider the documents requested by House investigators to be privileged. Trump — consistent with his efforts to keep his involvement in the events of Jan. 6 2021 as opaque as possible — invoked his own executive privilege as a past president in an attempt to block the release.

The SCOTUS ruling against Trump was brutal and swift, comprising less than a full page.Justice Roberts acknowledges that the balance of interests in this case are intriguing. “The questions whether and in what circumstances a former President may obtain a court order preventing disclosure of privileged records from his tenure in office, in the face of a determination by the incumbent President to waive the privilege, are unprecedented and raise serious and substantial concerns,” Roberts writes.

Justice Thomas is bought and paid for. He’s clearly trying to hide his wife’s involvement in the insurrection. I do see an end in sight finally. Well maybe there are limits. So 1 means somebody was like…”sure, ya …do it donny!”? he shouldn’t be able to claim executive privilege anytime anywhere Who was the 1 judge that took Trump side

My first words search in those docs would be GINNI THOMAS An innocent person would never do this!!!! Only Justice Thomas objected. Executive privileges are overused! The TRUTH must be told! With one exception,...National security!!!

Federal appeals court sends abortion case to Texas Supreme CourtIn the latest setback for abortion clinics that have challenged in federal court Texas' six-week ban on the procedure, the 5th US Circuit Court of Appeals said Monday night that it was sending the case to the Texas Supreme Court . Sad women still gotta fight for their BODIES!!! They just want to make women's lives difficult. They want us to focus on this issue & distract from the obstruction, gerrymandering & voter restrictions. Well, guess what? We'll be focusing on ALL of them & NEVER GIVE UP! F*ck the 5th Circuit. So my body my choice? Now do vaccine mandates.

Thomas dissenting in this shows how tainted he is. He should have recused given his wife’s involvement. His wife must be held accountable. Shocker. Clarence dissent. Conflicted much with his cow wife funding the 1-6 effort. Thomas dissented… as his wife bankrolled busses of insurrectionists to DC 🙄 Keep following that chain please!

25 Best 'Friends' Episodes At issue were two conflicting claims of presidential privilege. The sitting president, Joe Biden, does not consider the documents requested by House investigators to be privileged. Trump — consistent with his efforts to keep his involvement in the events of Jan. 6 2021 as opaque as possible — invoked his own executive privilege as a past president in an attempt to block the release. The SCOTUS ruling against Trump was brutal and swift, comprising less than a full page. Justice Roberts acknowledges that the balance of interests in this case are intriguing. “The questions whether and in what circumstances a former President may obtain a court order preventing disclosure of privileged records from his tenure in office, in the face of a determination by the incumbent President to waive the privilege, are unprecedented and raise serious and substantial concerns,” Roberts writes. But Roberts, writing for seven other justices, takes cover behind the ruling of the appeals court that examined Trump’s claims — effectively saying that Trump lost so badly in court in the last round that he has no ripe arguments to present to the highest court in the land. “Because the Court of Appeals concluded that President Trump’s claims would have failed even if he were the incumbent,” Roberts writes, “his status as a former President necessarily made no difference to the court’s decision. Justice Thomas’ dissent contains no legal analysis, stating only that he would grant Trump’s request. The upshot of the ruling — beyond the rebuke delivered to Trump by the three justices he appointed to the court — is that House investigators are one step closer to documenting the extent of Trump’s complicity in the insurrection that sought to block the peaceful transfer of power by foiling the certification of the count by the Electoral College.
