Yes, The Supreme Court Is Rigged For GOP Business, 5-4

At the Kavanaugh hearing, Senator Sheldon Whitehouse (D-RI) brings the evidence that 73 cases accepted by the Roberts Supreme Court were at the behest of conservative or big business causes, and the conservatives won, 5-4, "every damned time."

This Kavanaugh hearing is such a sham, but if we're going to have it, more Sheldon Whitehouse, please. The Rhode Island Democrat brought the heat this morning to the existing Roberts court, pointing out that under Roberts, cases friendly to big Republican business interests were accepted for hearing by the top court 73 times, and the conservative interest won, in Whitehouse's words, "every damned time."

It's no wonder there's so much investment, thievery, and corruption to keep the court in their hands. It's always been about the Supreme Court and tax cuts.

Whitehouse also took on Kavanaugh personally, pointing out his earlier statements in favor of protecting "a president" from the consequences of a criminal investigation. Not so much when it was Democrat Bill Clinton, eh?
