In a tough case, a judge will usually stick as close to precedent as they can.

Because the administration is really out there, that may not be possible. The Nixon case argued for a president essentially above the law, the administrations arguments in the 3 current cases go dramatically beyond what was proposed (and rejected) in the Nixon case.

You can see it in the questions. They spent a lot of time looking for places they could use to form the basis of an opinion. They usually have a pretty good idea going in, I don't think that's the case this time.

It was a long session, and above our pay grade in places. But this is undeniably historic, and I can't shake the feeling that the Right wing is looking for a way to escape the trap they are in. I admit that is definitely reading the tea leaves
