He sits motionless, like a spider in the center of its web, but that web has a thousand radiations, and he knows well every quiver of each of them.

We all remember this is a lie right? The nomination was withdrawn when it became clear that even Ratcliffe’s embarassingly paltry qualifications for the post were substantially fabricated.

This is an untenable decision. Much as SCOTUS should avoid constitutional confrontations whenever possible, this was the instance where is was not possible. This was when a decision was needed.

In fairness, he’s now the SECOND least qualified after Grenell.

Entertaining as that sounds, it is difficult to see how it advances the court’s stated aims or values.

On logic of this opinion, had the House directed the Sgt at Arms to seize McGahn for contempt, THEN the court could adjudicate the case. So if Congress wants the courts to rule on the validity of subpoenas, they need to start locking up executive branch employees first.

"We cannot decide this case without declaring the actions of one or the other unconstitutional." — D.C. Circuit today on why it won't resolve McGahn subpoena dispute. "This [resolving separation-of-powers disputes] is what courts do." — Chief Justice Roberts for in 2012.

Just as and I discussed the weird incentives at play for selecting a new DNI, Trump nominates Ratcliffe.

It would be better if the nominating process for the head of the US intelligence community did not have the feel of a game show

Even if there's no real chance that will be confirmed by the Senate, the formal submission of his nomination will allow to continue to serve as Acting DNI past March 11 — and for another 210 days _after_ Ratcliffe's rejection or withdrawal.

DC circuit rules 2-1 that Congress can't file civil lawsuits to enforce its subpoenas against executive branch officials who defy them, and dismisses House Judiciary Committee case against Trump's former White House counsel, Don McGahn.

I mean, at a minimum the concept of a “deterrent” sort of requires that the penalty be greater than what the penalized party gains from their misconduct (and much greater if the probability of incurring the penalty isn’t 100%).

The two things that rankle him most are criticism from women and from rich people who made their own money.

PSA: please stop using the term "warrant-proof encryption." It (1) buys into law enforcement's framing, which centers *their* interests, not yours, & (2) obscures the fact that in many situations, the cops don't need a warrant to access data. OK thank you

OK, I’m curious: Do the folks who were certain the Internet would be destroyed without mandated net neutrality now acknowledge those concerns were overblown, or do they think the apocalypse is still shuffling this way, and just taking its sweet time arriving?

A Utah woman could get put on the sex offender registry for being topless in front of her step kids in her own home. Utahns would have a meltdown if they went to any beach in Europe

The survey, it turns, out, does not say this! What it says: -38% of beer drinkers say they wouldn't buy Corona (for any reason at all, including, presumably...they prefer other beer) -4% of people who usually drink Corona say they would stop
