The court decided that Wilbur Ross did not have to give a deposition about his statements about the 2020 Census (which I think are lies). They’re protecting Trump.
Wilbur Ross repeatedly lied to Congress about why he added citizenship question to Census but SCOTUS is shielding him from answering questions in deposition under oath https://t.co/13Lax6KdPa

The courts forced Hillary Clinton to release every single email she wrote as Secretary of States, but won't make Wilbur Ross undergo a single deposition about the 2020 census. I guess there's a reason for this, but jeez.

I cannot think of a good reason why the Supreme Court would block Wilbur Ross, who lied to Congress about the illegitimate citizenship question he wants to put on the census form to suppress the role of minorities, from submitting to a deposition. This is highly suspicious.

After evidence came out that Wilbur Ross gave me a false answer in Congressional testimony, Trump's DOJ is now claiming that we should not be able to look into "the internal decision-making of the executive branch." We must have more oversight https://t.co/XyG2GuWtd1
