Trump in 2016 said ‘badly defeated’ Democrats were demanding recounts to ‘fill up their coffers’

Case preview: Justices to consider Delaware rules on bipartisanship in judiciary

The justices start their new term on Monday, at a time when the Supreme Court is at the center of a bitter battle over President Donald Trump’s nominee to succeed Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, who died last month at the age of 87.

A letter late Thursday from U.S. Attorney David Freed to a local election official left many questions about the matter unanswered. Still, in the vein of his bizarre press release earlier in the day, he let linger implications of so...
