There’s an action where an outgoing Executive tells those who swear an oath to uphold the Constitution that they should behave in a manner subversive to the Constitutional authority of the duly elected Executive.
But this judge has put on his little pink Resistance cap, and has decided to blow right through the limits of Constitutional authority and play the roles of both the judge AND the prosecutor.
