No justice of the Supreme Court gives an opinion on a matter unless it’s the written opinion deciding a case before the Court.
So, sorry. This tweet is crap.
Is that so?
John Roberts single-handidly delivered an injunction in the last day or so preventing the FEC from requiring donor lists be made public by political orgs.
Single Justices can issue orders, injunctions, stays, etc. It happens all the time.
Agreed, they do not give advisory opinions...ever.
Not true. Only 2 SC Justices were asked to comment. And among equal branches of government, SC Justices are free to give remarks on matters not formally before the Court.
Q is saying the letter is from Sessions to the S.C. regarding FISA warrant. Roberts is in charge of Overseeing FISA court. The speculation has been Roberts had to recuse himself for some reason, making Thomas in charge of oversight of FISA warrants
It would be like pulling teeth to get an official opinion from a couple of supremes (while in session October to June) if the sky was blue. HINT not happening.
