Stephen Colbert seems, by all accounts, to be getting a charge out of the incongruity of the most recent lawful curve in a court case including President Donald Trump.
Trump lost when he went to court to endeavor to hinder a House board from acquiring his monetary records, and his lawyer promised to speak to the D.C. Circuit Court of Offers ― the main judge of which is Merrick Garland, as Colbert pointed out.
Then-President Barack Obama assigned Laurel to the Incomparable Court in 2016, yet Republicans, driven by Mitch McConnell, would not hold a vote to affirm him. Trump assigned Neil Gorsuch for the high court in the wake of winning the 2016 race, and Wreath came back to the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals.
“Brace yourself, Congressperson McConnell,” Colbert cautioned Tuesday. “Since restitution’s a Mitch.”
