There is no doubt that the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals is by far the #1 most liberal court in all of America. They have a long track record of ruling on liberal agenda instead of points of law. President Donald Trump’s attorneys spent the day trying to defend his travel ban executive order which he had every legal right to do.
Welcome to Overnight Regulation, your daily rundown of news from the federal agencies, Capitol Hill, the courts and beyond. It’s Monday evening here in Washington where President Trump’s decision to fire FBI Director James Comey has thrown newly minted Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein into the spotlight. The Hill’s Jonathan Easley has that story here. And the White House is refusing to say if Trump has recordings of his conversations with Comey. The Hill’s Jordan Fabian has more on that here.

Chances are pretty good that the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals will rule against President Trump and force the White House to take the case to the US Supreme Court to decide. It’s rare for the 9th Circuit to rule in favor of any conservative or Republican and I seriously doubt if they will in this case. I would not be surprised if their minds were already made up before they ever heard the appeal.
