The judiciary was the ONLY checks & balances of the three-pronged system we had.

The only branch that was not in control of the Republicans and which checked Trump's actions.

With Kennedy gone, that ends. Even some circuits who try to check his illegal actions, their decisions will be automatically appealed to the USCT. A Trump-owned USCT.

Trump would then control all three branches of govt. So much for our checks & balances system. It couldn't work forever, I guess.
