This is one of those situations where “Cite?” is the best response, but there will be a couple of examples that can be semi-credibly cited, and then we can all spend the thread arguing about whether McConnell really pressured Trump into caving on the government shutdown or something.

But your reading is probably wrong, and in any case buying into it isn’t worth the catastrophic risk if it’s wrong.

If they allow him to ignore the courts, then why go to all the trouble to stack them as McConnell has?
This probably makes less sense than you think it does.
