As Long As Some Long Blinded (Willfully Blinkered) Are Now “Seeing The Light…” — Why Not?!

Given that it has been a momentous week for landmark opinions from the Supremes. . . and given that we would normally expect new opinions — tomorrow at 9:30 AM EDT. . . permit me a decidedly wild speculation:

Might we see an opinion authored by the Chief, declaring that Trump’s financials are fair game, in evidence, for a Congressional investigation (as plainly contemplated by — among other statutes — 5 U.S.C. app. 4 § 101)?

Just thought I’d take a wild leap, here. [I realize this would be light-speed early, for a decision, of any kind.]

But, if Justice Gorsuch is (finally) willing to read the plain English — and logic — of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 to mean what it says (i.e., make good on the promises embedded therein), then perhaps a 6-3 majority will also read plain English — and logic — into the post-Watergate-era Ethics in Government Act of 1978. We shall see. . . . smiling.
