    How Supreme Court justices could save Trump lawyers’ Christmas plans from ‘Grinch’-like activity and still hand Jack Smith a win – By Matt Naham (Law and Crime) / Dec 14, 2023

    After special counsel Jack Smith caught everyone’s attention by asking the U.S. Supreme Court to settle Donald Trump’s presidential immunity claims once and for all, the former president’s lawyers bristled that Smith was not only in a rush but also gunning to ruin Christmas in a “Grinch”-like way.

Circuit.
