Brett Kavanaugh And The Right’s Long Judicial Coup

This week's episode of Politics and Reality Radio features a discussion of the right wing's long, well funded campaign to push the center of gravity in American courts to the right.
Brett Kavanaugh And The Right’s Long Judicial Coup

This week, we're joined by People for the American Way Executive Vice President Marge Baker to talk about where we are in the gut-wrenching confirmation process for Brett Kavanaugh, Donald Trump's Supreme Court pick who faces charges of sexual assault and lying to Congress.

Then we go back to the archive to put all of this into a larger context with an earlier interview with Johns Hopkins political scientist Steven Teles, author of The Rise of the Conservative Legal Movement: The Battle for Control of the Law, a seminal book on the conservative movement's long, well funded campaign to push the center of gravity in American courts to the right.
