What do new Supreme Court Justice Neil Gorsuch, the CIA, and Donald Trump’s Russia scandal have to do with each other? A lot, according to one source out there. And this could turn out to be key in the scandal, because various disputes such as obtaining Trump’s tax returns or whether he can pardon himself are likely to come down to Supreme Court rulings. So here’s the scoop.
There’s a Florida political pundit on Twitter known only as “Puesto Loco” who claims to have inside sources, and the info he’s shared from those sources has panned out in the past. Now he’s asserting that “I’ve been told CIA has been briefing Roberts and Kagan, there is high treason involved, and Roberts has recused Gorsuch from any Trump Russia [rulings]” (link). He adds, “My source is solid, active in these matters at a very high level.” So what does this mean?
As Palmer Report has previously reported, there has been some push by the Democrats in Congress to get Russia’s election hacking legally defined as an act of war (link). As treason is a wartime crime, this would open the door for Donald Trump to be charged with treason if it’s proven that he conspired with the Russian government on the election hacking. So the “high treason” aspect of Puesto Loco’s assertion does pan out.
Further, if any upcoming impeachment trial of Donald Trump does include treason charges, it would raise the legal question of whether a Supreme Court Justice nominated by a President who rigged his own election could then turn around and rule on matters pertaining to that rigged election. And we’ve spoken with a legal expert this evening who confirmed there is lower court precedent for a head judge to forcibly recuse another judge on the same panel. So these things circumstantially lend credibility to Puesto Loco’s source, and we said, he’s been proven right on these things before. Stay tuned. Help fund Palmer Report
