Contributing sentiments towards policy:

58% : But that decision recognized a difference between civil lawsuits and “the far weightier” enforcement of federal criminal laws, Smith’s team told the court.
53% : FULL BENCHOf the nine justices hearing the case, three were nominated by Trump — Amy Coney Barrett, Neil Gorsuch and Brett Kavanaugh.
38% : Trump has sought to push back the trial until after the election, when, if he were to regain the presidency, he could order the Justice Department to drop the case.
29% : The court unanimously held that states could not invoke a provision of the 14th Amendment known as the insurrection clause to prevent Trump from appearing on presidential ballots.
28% : The Supreme Court is moving faster than usual in taking up the case, though not as quickly as special counsel Jack Smith wanted, raising questions about whether there will be time to hold a trial before the November election, if the justices agree with lower courts that Trump can be prosecuted.
26% : Trump has been charged in federal court in Washington with conspiring to overturn the 2020 election, one of four criminal cases he is facing.
24% : Trump faces the same charge in special counsel Jack Smith’s prosecution in Washington.
19% : Luttig also advised Vice President Mike Pence not to succumb to pressure from Trump to reject some electoral votes, part of Trump’s last-ditch plan to remain in office.
17% : Smith’s team wrote that the lack of previous criminal charges “underscores the unprecedented nature” of what Trump is accused of.
15% : That has prompted calls for the justice to step aside from several court cases involving Trump and Jan. 6.But Thomas has ignored the calls, taking part in the unanimous court decision that found states cannot kick Trump off the ballot as well as last week’s arguments over whether prosecutors can use a particular obstruction charge against Capitol riot defendants.
