At the risk of stating the obvious, we should take it as a given that if the 2020 presidential election ends with any plausible, colorable path to the US Supreme Court becoming involved in the outcome, the current majority will intervene and hand the president to President Trump. I don’t believe it is alarmist to say or hyperbolic to believe this. It is only to accurately set expectations. A far more legitimate, less corrupt court did as much in 2000. The current five are entirely different. Indeed, only one – Thomas – remains from the Bush v Gore majority.
