Legal experts to Trump on travel ban: Twitter hurting cause

The ban looks to temporarily restrict the ability of people from six Muslim majority nations to travel to the US.
The court should focus instead on the text of the revised executive order and statements from Trump after he had taken the inaugural oath to "preserve, protect and defend the Constitution", the briefs said.
But "extreme vetting" is what's now in place, says Trump in yet another Monday tweet, saying the courts are slow and political.
In his early morning Twitter messages on Monday, Trump potentially hurt his administration's legal case as it seeks to have the Supreme Court overturn lower courts' rulings and allow the travel ban to go into effect.
Memo from legal experts to President Donald Trump on resurrecting his stalled travel ban: Put down the Twitter.
Presenting President Donald Trump's stymied travel ban to the Supreme Court last week, the Department of Justice has requested the court reinstate the travel ban until justices could rule on its constitutionality in October.
Tapper also emphasized that "this George Conway Tweet is significant". But his admission that it is, in fact, a ban, likely just cost him his Supreme Court case, effectively destroying his "ban". "These will also go a long way toward mooting debate over use of campaign statements; no need when, as President, he still says these things".
Conway was adamant that the United States stands with the U.K. and that they will receive whatever support they need going forward in combating terrorism.

CNN had been told previously Trump was expected to nominate Conway to run the Justice Department's civil division, which handles legal challenges to major administration initiatives, or even solicitor general.
"Talkative clients pose distinct difficulties for attorneys, as statements outside the court can frustrate strategies inside the court", Blackman said.
Asked if Trump was wrong to make the comments, British Prime Minister Theresa May said at a news conference on Monday that "Sadiq Khan is doing a good job and it's wrong to say anything else - he's doing a good job". The lower courts have cited Trump's own statements, primarily on the campaign trail previous year, that the order should be seen as a "total and complete shutdown of Muslims entering the United States" to reject the ban.
Following the tragedy in Manchester this past weekend, Donald Trump tweeted out that, this particular incident shows why we need to be tough, we need to be vigilant, we need to be smart, and we need the travel ban.
"It's kinda odd to have the defendant in Hawaii v Trump acting as our co-counsel", said Neal Katyal, who is representing Hawaii. But before that speech was delivered top aides, including the secretary of state, said he would explicitly endorse Article 5, which is basically an attack on one is an attack on all. In this case, the -BF indicates Ferguson wrote the tweet.
Trump has used attacks around the world to justify his pursuit of the travel and immigration ban, one of his first acts since taking office. He also said that "sensible" lawyers in the White House and Justice Department agree with him.
The March directive narrowed the scope of the original order, which was hastily unveiled during Trump's first week in office.
