I’m not a lawyer but work with/for one who’s gone to the SCOTUS and obtained certiorari. Don’t know the inner workings of the Court, but they receive 6-8K petitions a year and accept fewer than 100 for argument; some are granted certiorari but sent back to the court below without a SCOTUS hearing. The odds for any petitioner are poor.

This is my layman’s view of what happens: I think all petitions are initially read by the justices’ clerks; most are rejected. Then the lawyer/petitioner can go back to a single Justice for review, based on the Justice’s area of jurisdiction. Each Justice is assigned certain appellate areas (circuits). If that is rejected, the lawyer/petitioner can choose one more Justice whose history might show a sympathy to the issues raised for review. Then, if that Justies DOES find the issues to be worthy of SCOTUS consideration, s/he brings to Conference. At Conference they discuss all the cases and decide which to grant certiorari.

Quite a few admit that amusement is their motive. Seeing s lying criminal crackhead marxist thug elected doesn’t bother them; they get their jollies by taunting and sneering at those who see the grave davger and are not only concerned but many who are actually doing something about it.

(i’m not contributing much lately ‘cause only one arm fuctional snd still sick...)

Yes, I agree.

On the one hand, there’s no way the SCOTUS is going to make him show anything. Like it or not, that’s just the way things are.

On the other hand, I do find it odd that he wouldn’t have ended all this crap months ago by providing the original. That makes me a bit suspicious.

Oh well.
