WISH LIST - Lawyers for Theranos founder Elizabeth Holmes are set to ask a federal judge in San Jose, California, this morning to force prosecutors to scour the files of federal agencies for potential evidence that might help her defend against the government’s fraud charges. Atop the list of requests from Holmes’ lawyers at Williams & Connolly are all the government’s communications about Theranos with John Carreyrou, the Wall Street Journal reporter who broke the Theranos story and wrote a best-seller about the blood testing company’s downfall.
PUSHBACK - Chief Justice John Roberts is catching sharp criticism for the SCOTUS decision over the 2020 Census citizenship question. As Tony Mauro reports, conservatives are offended, saying that he second-guessed the Trump administration’s reasoning for including the question. Roberts and the four liberal justices determined that the rationale behind the action was “contrived.” Matt Schlapp, chairman of the American Conservative Union, has called for impeaching Roberts, while Curt Levey of the conservative Committee for Justice says that Roberts “disappointed conservatives” in the decision “to a degree not seen since he saved ObamaCare in 2012.”
