Supreme Court and the President

 (connects to my you tube blog)

(The opinions here are mine and mine alone.)

Today the Supreme Court ruled that the district attorney of New York City 'could' get the president's tax information by subpoena. It was a 7-2 vote with both the president's appointments voting against him. 

The decision about the House of Representatives getting the information was a little different but did allow it to go forward in the courts.

We won't have them by election day, but the president was furious on twitter.

"No one is above the law", Chief Justice Roberts wrote in his opinion. "Not even the President."

I say, 'good going, Supreme Court'--I'm not relieved yet but having the court be that definite is a start back toward the rule of law. Which in my opinion, this president has been degrading in dangerous ways.

Also, the Court ruled that about half of Oklahoma is legally Native American land. 

That's going to be a big challenge to the state.

We shall see what we shall see.
