This post will be a bit different than most here. Rather than the whole post being from a specific date, it will be a series of posts from different dates. If I see something that makes me think I see a pattern developing, an eventual outcome or even just an incident that is likely to happen. You will find it here. Not a long explanation, just the meat. If you compare the date to the news, you will probably find my inspiration.

In 1974, the Supreme Court rejected a broad claim of privilege by the Nixon administration, ruling, “Neither the doctrine of separation of powers nor the generalized need for confidentiality of high-level communications, without more, can sustain an absolute, unqualified Presidential privilege of immunity from judicial process under all circumstances.”
