Just do it, Obama: Come January, you will be consigned to the sidelines as Trump occupies the Oval Office and begins the work of dismantling your legacy. But there is one action that you could take on January 3, 2017 that could hold off some of the worst potential abuses of a Trump administration for a year or more, or perhaps indefinitely. You can lawfully appoint your nominee Merrick Garland to the Supreme Court,in between the two sessions of Congress.
A word to the wise ought to be sufficient, we hope.
