The precedent of this Court does not compel an out- come for either side. Although decisions such as Humph- rey’s Executor v. United States, 295 U.S. 602 (1935), and Morrison v. Olson, 487 U.S. 654 (1988), approved statutes that insulate administrative officers from presidential re- moval, each of those rulings is readily distinguishable from the situation presented in this case. See PHH Corp. v. Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, 881 F.3d 75, 164–98 (D.C. Cir. 2018) (en banc) (Kavanaugh, J., dissent- ing) (distinguishing Humphrey’s Executor and Morri- son).
