What one RINO just did to the Supreme Court will leave you red with rage

Conservatives thought they only had to worry about Democrats attacking the Court. Now their allies in the Republican Party are joining in.

And what one RINO just did to the Supreme Court will leave you red with rage.

The Left has been after the Supreme Court for years.

They hate that Donald Trump was able to nominate so many justices to the Court that they can’t live with it.

That’s why they’ve been trying to push out old liberals for newer, more radical liberals.

And it’s why they’ve pushed for packing the Court with more and more justices to dilute the conservative majority.

Now one RINO is trying to strong arm the Court into ruling against Trump.

Former Wyoming Republican Rep. Liz Cheney said Monday that the Supreme Court should rule that former President Donald Trump has “no immunity” from prosecution and that any delay in his federal trial will have a “profoundly negative impact.”

“If delay prevents this Trump case from being tried this year, the public may never hear critical and historical evidence developed before the grand jury, and our system may never hold the man most responsible for Jan. 6 to account,” Cheney, who is one of Trump’s biggest critics on the Right, wrote in a New York Times op-ed.

Cheney’s remarks came just days before the Supreme Court is set to hear arguments on Thursday on whether Trump may be immune from prosecution in special counsel Jack Smith’s 2020 election subversion case.

Smith has frequently stated that there is a considerable “public interest” in holding a trial on the four-count indictment before the November presidential election, and he has also encouraged expediency in settling the immunity argument.

Trump’s lawyers recently conceded to the Supreme Court that if it does not grant him full immunity in Smith’s case, it should at the very least return the case to U.S. District Judge Tanya Chutkan to determine whether any partial theory of immunity would apply to his case, a result that would still push the trial back several months.

Legal experts warned the case might face more delays if Trump is given the opportunity to contest the extent to which each of the four counts in the indictment is based on official conduct of the then-president.

Smith claims Trump’s alleged involvement in a conspiracy to submit forged election certificates to Congress in the hopes of overturning Joe Biden’s victory constituted a series of crimes.

Trump claims he was only voicing his fears about possible voter fraud and has pleaded not guilty to the allegations.

Cheney, a former chairwoman of the Republican Conference, stated that the Supreme Court’s action is critical for the public to watch “historic testimony” that is “likely to remain secret until the special counsel presents his case at trial.”

Trump had previously suffered losses on his immunity theory after Chutkan and a three-judge panel on the United States Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit denied his attempt to dismiss the accusations.

“Early this year, a federal appeals court took less than a month after oral argument to issue its lengthy opinion on immunity,” Cheney said, adding that “history shows that the Supreme Court can act just as quickly, when necessary.”

Trump’s case on Thursday will be the only one argued this term, with a judgment expected between early May and late June.
