If they side with him, we are truly done as a nation
Okay, I can't tell if you are truly ignorant of the issues in the case or just don't understand them.
This case is literally about an uppercase "R," where there is literally no prior legal precedent. If you have any precedential reason why they can't side with the current administration's interpretation, I'd love to hear it. So would the Supreme Court.
If you buy the fact that any future recess appointment can or should be nullified by simply holding pretend meetings (and dont give me the they were actual meetings argument, because thats just disingenious) are you happy or okay with other portions of the constitution being nullified by pro forma acts?
I have my own reason for thinking that the government should lose, but I can actually, and honestly, see how a ruling in favor of the government might actually protect the intent of the constitution, as written.
Eta: in case I'm off and asked to explain my reasons, there is a simple alternative, and a legal alternative. First, how about the senate actually, you know, conduct some business and be able to fully provide advice and consent on the presidents nominations. How about not extending the session indefinitely simply to thwart a constitutional power when you aren't doing a damn thing.
I'm too lazy to go into my legal theories right now.
