I assume that Thomas and Roberts will bail to make the big bucks shortly..

Leaving 3 or more Supremes for Trump to bypass any of his legal problems.

1. Why on earth would they?

That makes no sense at all.

2. Multiply your salary by 100 or 1000 would be a great reason.

3. If you're on the Supreme Court you're one of the most powerful people

in the US. You don't take the job in the first place if your main goal is making money.

8. Only three justices have retired in recent years: Stevens, O'Connor and Souter.

None of them have sought high-paying positions in the private sector; they occasionally serve as federal judges by designation and are members of the boards of charities. A couple of them have written books and sometimes they give speeches and lectures. That's about it. Nobody leaves the Supreme Court in order to make money.

7. No need too, Trump would just make them part of a nasty tweet joke

until they bailed. Nice is an old fashion game.
