WASHINGTON – President Donald Trump says his impeachment battle with House Democrats "probably ends up being a big Supreme Court case."
Several other legal disputes over Trump's personal, professional and political dealings, both as president and before taking office, are headed toward the nation's highest court just as the 2020 presidential campaign is heating up. Subpoenas are flying in search of key documents and elusive testimony.
The president thinks the conservative-leaning court will be on his side. His opponents believe they have stronger constitutional arguments. The justices, already facing cases on abortion, immigration, guns and LGBTQ rights, might prefer to take a pass.

"I think the court’s going to do everything in its power to avoid getting into the subpoena stuff," says Neal Devins, a law professor at William & Mary Law School. "But it might not be able to easily avoid the issue."
