Judge Justin Walker, Trump's third and final D.C. Circuit appointee, has not abandoned his unorthodox writing style since joining that court.
DC Circuit strikes down Trump EPA's power plant carbon emissions rule | #climatepolicy * ACE rule designed to replace Clean Power Plan * Decision could provide more flexibility in regulating GHG @mollyknc story:
Smart point here by @jonathanchait , related to that Trump power plant rule being torn out by the DC circuit. Businesses have to hedge against possible future regulations; hence, Detroit didn't start building less efficient cars bc Trump let them.
Biggest threat Trump now poses is that he will issue a mass pardon for all involved in the 1/6 insurrection. Not only will that deny accountability for the insurrectionists it will short-circuit investigations into new attacks since FBI will lose leverage over arrestees.
BREAKING: 9th Circuit has given the Trump administration a green light to proceed with deportation of about 300,000 El Salvadorans by ending the 'temporary protected status' they've had for up to 20 years. 2-1 ruling today. Doc: More to come
