3. Why? Kompromat

These incestuous relationships mean that the Donald and the Russian mob have the goods on him or his family. They are turning the screws on him so he retired in accordance with their wishes. Remember that Kennedy had hired law clerks for the upcoming terms and had not planned on retiring.

4. His son was Trumps banker for 12 years- another arranged a huge loan to Kushner.

 

He’d be faced w the need to recuse.

6. But he would not have recused himself

I forgot the details but a relative of Scalia had a connection with Bush but he didn’t revise himself from Bush v Gore.

7. USSC justices are not REQUIRED to recuse. It is voluntary.

5. Just wondering if there is a slight whiff of dementia fluttering in along with the

new knowledge that his son is a bff of trump?
Makes sense.
