Confirmation Bias

Inside Washington's War Over the Supreme Court, From Scalia's Death to Justice Kavanaugh

Audiobook CD - 2019
Rate this:
The embodiment of American conservative thought and jurisprudence, Antonin Scalia cast an expansive shadow over the Supreme Court for three decades. His unexpected death in February 2016 created a vacancy that precipitated a pitched political fight. That battle would not only change the tilt of the court but the course of American history. It would help decide a presidential election, fundamentally alter longstanding protocols of the United States Senate, and transform the Supreme Court, which has long held itself as a neutral arbiter above politics, into another branch of the federal government riven by partisanship. In an unprecedented move, the Republican-controlled Senate, led by the majority leader, Mitch McConnell, refused to give Democratic President Barack Obama's nominee, Merrick Garland, a confirmation hearing. Not one Republican in the Senate would meet with him. Scalia's seat would be held open until Donald Trump's nominee, Neil M. Gorsuch, was confirmed in April 2017.
