THE SCOTUS Decisions (Part One)

CAL THOMAS COMMENTARY JULY 10, 2020

         WHAT DID THE SUPREME COURT DECIDE YESTERDAY?

         IN THE FIRST CASE, INVOLVING A CRIMINAL INVESTIGATION BY THE PRESIDENT’S NEMESIS, NEW YORK DISTRICT ATTORNEY CYRUS VANCE, JUNIOR, THE COURT SENT THE CASE BACK TO LOWER COURTS TO RESOLVE SOME IMPORTANT ISSUES. BUT IN A 7-2 DECISION, IT ALSO SAID THERE IS NO ABSOLUTE IMMUNITY BY ANY PRESIDENT TO CRIMINAL PROSECUTION. THAT OUGHT TO BE A GIVEN, BUT VANCE IS A HIGH PROFILE OPPONENT OF THE PRESIDENT AND I DOUBT HE WOULD HAVE HELD ANY DEMOCRAT TO THE SAME STANDARD. WE’LL SEE HOW THIS TURNS OUT AND THE LOWER COURTS COULD RESOLVE IT BEFORE THE ELECTION.

         THE OTHER TWO CASES WERE ALSO SENT BACK TO LOWER COURTS. THESE INVOLVED THE ABILITY OF CONGRESS TO SUBPOENA THE FINANCIAL RECORDS OF A PRESIDENT. THE COURT PUNTED ON THIS ONE AND IT IS UNLIKELY TO BE DECIDED BEFORE THE ELECTION.

         ALL OF THIS IS A CONTINUATION OF DEMOCRATS’ EFFORTS TO POISON THE POLITICAL WATERS AND TO CONTINUE UNDERMINING THE WILL OF THOSE WHO VOTED FOR TRUMP IN 2016. I DOUBT THIS WILL MATTER TO TRUMP VOTERS BUT IT COULD MATTER TO SWING VOTERS. WE’LL SEE. I’M CAL THOMAS.
