For many, the argument is over. These legal minds have swallowed the lie of precedence and do not wish to waste time overturning SCOTUS rulings. This is true even though these same people would claim to oppose such rulings.
One of the best examples of this is Roe v. Wade. Judges and law experts claim that they think abortion is an act of murder, yet they have no desire or drive to stop the act. And one of these legal experts is a possible SCOTUS nominee.

Just two weeks before he is expected to announce his pick for the U.S. Supreme Court, Donald Trump met on Saturday with one of the judges stated to be on his shortlist: Judge William Pryor, a former Alabama attorney general who prosecuted “Ten Commandments Judge” Roy Moore in 2003, and who vowed not to seek to overturn Roe v. Wade despite his personal beliefs during his confirmation hearing to the federal appeals circuit.
During his confirmation hearing, he advised that although he personally believes that abortion is “the taking of innocent human life” and therefore “morally wrong,” he would not seek to overturn Roe v. Wade as a federal judge.
“[M]y record as attorney general shows that I am able to put aside my personal beliefs and follow the law, even when I strongly disagree with it, to look carefully at precedents and to do my duty,” he advised.
So whatever the liberal judge before him has passed Pryor is okay with, he will abide by that ruling regardless how wrong he thinks that it is. No matter how he feels or thinks, he will keep the status quo. And this is basically what he says.

“This is what we have a hard time squaring—myself, I think some others,” Schumer said. “If you believe that Roe is the worst abomination in the history of constitutional law, it would seem to me to directly follow that you would want the Court to reverse Roe. It is a contradiction. You just said a minute ago that you believe that is still the case, and now you are saying you would not endorse the court reversing it. It does not add up.”
“Well, Senator,” Pryor replied, “all I can tell you is that the last time the court had that opportunity, I urged my colleague not to present that question to the court.”
So Pryor is either a liar or a coward. He is either too afraid to face the persecution and ridicule that he poured out on Roy Moore or he really does not think that abortion is murder.
I think he is a liar, but what do I know.
So much for draining the swamp.
