Podcast: Inside the Judicial Wars
When Ruth Bader Ginsburg was confirmed to the Supreme Court almost 30 years ago, it was by a near-unanimous vote. But if Amy Coney Barrett is successfully confirmed later this month, it will likely be by a razor-thin margin.
In this week’s episode of the Wake Up To Politics Podcast, I’m joined by Washington Post reporter Seung Min Kim and High School SCOTUS founder Anna Salvatore to explain how judicial confirmations grew so toxic.
We’ll trace through the modern history of Supreme Court confirmation battles, from Bork to Barrett, and discuss what it means for the Senate, the nation, and the future of the courts.
