Quote:
The Supreme Court on Monday avoided a high-profile case by rejecting appeals from Kansas and Louisiana in their effort to strip Medicaid money from Planned Parenthood, over the dissenting votes of three justices.

The court's order reflected a split among its conservative justices and an accusation from Justice Clarence Thomas that his colleagues seemed to be ducking the case for political reasons. New Justice Brett Kavanaugh was among the justices who opted not to hear the case.

The two states were appealing lower court rulings that had blocked them from withholding money that is used for health services for low-income women. The money is not used for abortions. Abortion opponents have said Planned Parenthood should not receive any government money because of heavily edited videos that claimed to show the nation's largest abortion provider profiting from sales of fetal tissue for medical research.

Investigations sparked by the videos in several states didn't result in criminal charges.

The dispute at the high court has nothing to do with abortion, as Thomas pointed out in a dissent that was joined by Justices Samuel Alito and Neil Gorsuch. Kavanaugh's decision not to join the three justices was his first discernible vote on the court. Had he or Chief Justice John Roberts voted to hear the case, there would have been the four votes necessary to set the case for arguments.

................"So what explains the court's refusal to do its job here? I suspect it has something to do with the fact that some respondents in these cases are named 'Planned Parenthood.' That makes the Court's decision particularly troubling, as the question presented has nothing to do with abortion," Thomas wrote.

She admits, as part of the deal, according to a copy obtained by ABC News that is expected to be filed to the court, that she and an unnamed “U.S. Person 1,” which sources have identified as longtime Republican operative Paul Erickson, with whom she had a multiyear romantic relationship, “agreed and conspired, with a Russian government official (“Russian Official”) and at least one other person, for Butina to act in the United States under the direction of Russian Official without prior notification to the Attorney General.”

If campaign finance breach is wrong, Hatch doesn't want to be right.

Yep

When Trump said he could shoot someone on the street and get away with it, funny how that statement has turned out to be the only truthful thing he’s said since running for office

The house will vote to impeach him. The question is simply when. They should wait for the full Mueller Report, but what the Southern District has already done might be enough.

If the Mueller Report is damning and has irrefutable evidence, the Senate Republicans will have the choice to either remove him or forever tie themselves to his crimes.

I think we're all expecting them to choose door #2.

In January of 2020 Trump will resign, and Pence will pardon him.

Out last hope then would be that enough was left out of the charges that were filed for the States if New York and Virginia to bring their own separate charges.

Otherwise - he skates.

Trump met with Nancy Pelosi, Chuck Schumer and a chair shaped like Mike Pence. It went as well as expected.

You'll have to excuse Mike Pence, he was trying not to be obviously eyeballing the curtain measurements.

The Republicans on TV are all of two minds. Either "this isn't a crime, so it doesn't matter" (Orrin Hatch is too senile to remember that he once insisted that immorality should be disqualifying) or "John Edwards did it too!!" (Because that's relevant somehow? And they want to equate their God Emperor with a guy who denied having a baby with another woman while his wife was dying of cancer and raising their children?)

It’s amazing how central this is to white identity politics. This sense that poor browns are running amok and getting free lunches and vaccinations.

Has Jonathan Edwards held a relevant elected office in over 10 years?
