Thank you to the Supreme Court for restoring sanity bit by bit.
The latest comes in a victory for President Trump and acting Attorney General Matthew Whitaker.
You might remember the Democrats filing suit to stop the appointment of Whitaker:
Well, the Democrats lost!
The TRUMP TRAIN plows forward!
Here are more details from The Hill:
The Supreme Court on Monday refused to hear a challenge to the legality of President Trump’s decision to name Matthew Whitaker acting attorney general.
The request came in a case, which the court also refused to review, disputing the constitutionality of the lifetime ban on felons owning guns when it’s applied to someone who served their sentence a long time ago and has since been a law abiding citizen.
Attorneys for Barry Michaels, the Nevada man at the center of the Second Amendment case, argued that under the federal succession statute Senate-confirmed Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosensteinautomatically became acting attorney general after former Attorney General Jeff Sessionsstepped down in November, and that Whitaker’s appointment violated the Appointments Clause of the Constitution.
Thomas Goldstein, one of Michaels's attorneys, noted that Whitaker’s actions on anything from appointing immigration judges to overseeing special counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia investigation could be challenged in court if his appointment is later found to be invalid.
“If this Court declines to resolve this question immediately and instead determines several months in the future that Mr. Whitaker’s appointment was always invalid, then ‘unwinding’ all of those personal orders would be a fraught and disruptive exercise that could embroil the federal courts in innumerable collateral disputes,” Michaels's attorneys wrote in a brief.
The justices denied review of both Michaels’s case and Whitaker’s role as acting attorney general in the case.
