ISSUE 72: SCOTUS V. MAGA

Benching Kennedy.

Last Wednesday, Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy announced his plans to retire at the end of this month. Though he was a conservative judge nominated by a conservative president, losing him from the bench is a threat to the future of progressive reform. No surprise that his proposed replacement, Brett Kavanaugh, is a long-time conservative flunky. This week we’re talking about why Trump worked so hard to get Kennedy to retire, the critical protections at stake, and what we can do now to feel less hopeless.
