I think the idea is that if The Supreme Court and an overwhelming majority is okay with it, the Constitution is irrelevant.

The Deep State wants Civil War II.

This is threat and President Trump will need to fire them anyway and call their bluff as we the People have his back.

It also proves that te Special Counsel is most definitely a witch hunt beyond a doubt.

Perjury Trap.

Impeachment Trap.

Deep State Treason.

Liberal Judge Assaults.

Media Assaults.

Incitement of Violence.

These have been the Left’s strategy points since the day after Trump was elected.
