1. There's not a whole lot to say

 


Presumably they also extended the stay, but I'm expecting that there will be a motion to expedite.

2. Considering that there are three cases that raise important separation of powers issues,

it makes sense that they'd hear them to resolve the question. The law cited by the lower court decisions in favor of releasing the records is very strong, so it would take some advanced mental gymnastics to rule otherwise - that is, to accept the premise that a president can't be investigated in any way - so I don't think they'll hand Trump a victory, but whether they will limit their decision in some way remains to be seen. They'd have to overrule or drastically modify the unanimous decision (and that's important) in U.S. v. Nixon to get where Trump wants to go, and I do not see even Gorsuch or Kavanaugh going that far.

3. Steve Vladech (I think he's in line with what Tribe & Katyal predicted earlier)

Its really important not to read too much into the fact that #SCOTUS is taking these cases. Historically, these are cases the Justices feel compelled to take up out of deference to the presidency even when they ultimately rule against the President (see Nixon; Clinton v. Jones).
