If the Supreme Court becomes just another political arena, constitutional rights will cease to function as a check on majority power. We the people — ALL of us — can and must do our part to defend liberty. We won't stop fighting.

Deputy Chief Justice Raymond Zondo has turned to the Constitutional Court in a bid to force former president Jacob Zuma to respond to allegations levelled against him. | @karynmaughan 

Constitutional scholar @AlanDersh  explains the chances of the Supreme Court taking Trump’s campaign lawsuits. “If there are 20 or 30 challenged ballots but if the margin of victory is at 80,000 votes, the Supreme Court won’t take that case.”

BREAKING: Zondo announces that State Capture Inquiry will apply to Constitutional Court for order that will force Zuma to appear before the Inquiry.

@SenateGOP Crazy Nancy Pelosi wants to Impeach me if I fulfill my Constitutional Obligation to put forth a Nominee for the vacated seat on the United States Supreme Court. This would be a FIRST, even crazier than being Impeached for making a PERFECT phone call to Ukrainian Pres.

We cannot have Election Day come and go with a 4-4 Court. We risk a constitutional crisis if we do not have a 9-Justice Supreme Court, particularly when there is such a risk of a contested election.

Am humbled & deeply honored to be on President Trump’s SCOTUS list, released today. I spent this Summer writing a book on the Supreme Court, telling the inside story of how our constitutional liberties hang in the balance, One Vote Away. PRE-ORDER here:

Today, the Supreme Court, including two of the President’s appointees, affirmed that President Trump is not above the law, recognized Congress’s constitutional authority to conduct oversight #ForThePeople  & upheld the separation of powers that is the genius of our Constitution.

Today the Supreme Court threw up its hands & declared it can’t rein in partisan gerrymandering – can’t protect Americans’ constitutional rights to participate in their democracy equally & choose their representatives. It's a shameful blow to the functioning of our democracy.

I want a Supreme Court that will stand up for civil liberties, constitutional rights, workers' rights, environmental rights, women's rights.

Ten years ago today, the Supreme Court's decision in Citizens United unleashed hundreds of millions of dollars in corporate and special-interest money into U.S. elections. The next president should propose a constitutional amendment to overturn the decision.
