Tonight, Corey Johnson is the 12th person executed by the Trump administration. Despite intellectual disability and having recently had COVID-19, SCOTUS denied his appeal. There is no reform to bring sense, fairness, or humanity to this punishment. #AbolishTheDeathPenalty

1/ For the second night this week, the justices are considering final appeals in a death penalty case. The federal government seeks to execute Corey Johnson tonight. He has filed two emergency requests for a stay. SCOTUS could rule at any time. Here's a run-down of the issues ⬇️

In 2003 SCOTUS ruled it unconstitutional to execute a person with intellectual disability. International law has prohibited such executions for even longer. Yet today, @TheJusticeDept plans to kill a Black man with these disabilities. The death penalty is too flawed to fix.

4. That's because martial law isn't "invoked"; it's a *factual* state of affairs in which there is no functioning civilian government. As #SCOTUS held in 1866, it "can never be applied ... where the courts are open and their process unobstructed." https://t.co/Dg5Bes4FDC

Medication abortion care is a safe, effective, and FDA-approved. So why did the Supreme Court just make it harder to access? Because they’re prioritizing an ideological agenda based on disinformation over getting people the abortion care they need. #SCOTUS

BREAKING: SCOTUS denies final appeals of Corey Johnson, clearing the way for the federal gov't to execute him tonight. Johnson recently contracted COVID in prison and sought a stay on that basis, among other issues. The three liberal justices would have put the execution on hold.

The feds plan to kill Corey Johnson, who is intellectually disabled, today, pending a SCOTUS ruling. Another possibility would be clemency from the President, a crucial safeguard. How can we carry out executions when clemency is impossible bc the President is deposed in place?

Justice Amy Coney Barrett hasn’t recused herself from hearing a lawsuit against Shell, even though her dad worked there for 29 years. Next week, SCOTUS will hear the city of Baltimore’s lawsuit against Shell, BP and other oil companies for allegedly exacerbating climate change. https://t.co/v7Byn9n9DX

SCOTUS is reviewing the last appeals that will decide whether Corey Johnson lives or dies. If they let his execution go forward, it will be another needless death in a year of reckless executions amidst a pandemic. The system is broken beyond repair. End the death penalty. https://t.co/o865UyBr43

@AmandaSoper89 @tedcruz This isn’t Tyrrany. This is a free election. Too bad you don’t like the outcome. You lost an election, grow up. You lost 62 court cases. Were laughed off by SCOTUS. Lost hand counts, electronic recounts, lost signature verification challenges. You lost.

Trump can't be sure a self-pardon will work. (No one is since SCOTUS never considered it.) That means for Trump to be 100% certain he has a valid pardon from federal crimes he must step down before Jan 20-even temporarily-to let Mike Pence pardon him. (Save this tweet!)

Two Trump judges and a Trump SCOTUS shortlister use Gorsuch’s dissent from an emergency order to block COVID restrictions. It’s lawless nonsense with no basis in precedent, but they know Barrett will back them. https://t.co/MWSIQClZi9

Of Stanford University, Yale Law School, Hogan Lovells and clerk to Chief Justice of #SCOTUS, Josh Hawley knows that this is a ridiculous, evidence-free Kraken conspiracy. But he very much wants to be President. More than he cares about our democracy. So we’re along for his ride https://t.co/5sWmm7T4yq

Lin Wood is trying to bait John Roberts to file suit so he can have the credibility of being in a BS litigation against the Chief Justice of SCOTUS. The claims have no merit and Roberts isn’t biting. And my disdain for Roberts is public and crystal clear.

#SCOTUS releases its February 2021 argument calendar. Of note, it includes only eight arguments (usually, there would be at least 12), two of which (Trump v. Sierra Club and Wolf v. Innovation Law Lab) could potentially be mooted before they are argued: https://t.co/VKkwA3NN0l https://t.co/BvlOEUaIST

Trump’s Dec 29 request that SCOTUS reverse the WI SCt before the Electoral Votes cast Dec 14 are counted on Jan 6 should be denied. The state’s top court rightly ruled that Trump’s groundless challenge came much too late to make a federal case out of it. https://t.co/JzTIOKW8yp
