The Supreme Court Justices Have Turned Into Internet Trolls

"Your comments on Samuel shecky Alito. To Internet trolls now, Supreme Court justices. It's like it's like they all decided to be Internet commenters because they can get away with it. I'm going down, in fact, I'm going down tonight to Washington to watch them take democracy apart tomorrow. North Carolina case about the independent state legislature, you know, independent state legislatures theory, which is approximately the same, you might as well call it the brain from planets onto our theory for all relevance of that to anything. Yeah. It's actually going to get a hearing. I can hardly wait until I can hardly wait to hear what she comes up with for that. He's working on a bunch of new material before he goes on his federalist society chuckle on tour. Yes. So explain to people that don't understand what, so he joked about black Santa, children and clan robes and dating websites as the Supreme Court heard arguments yesterday in a case weighing a web designer's bid to avoid working on same sex weddings because she's a conservative evangelical Christian. So try to explain this to people and what Alito's point was he was trying to he was trying to he asked whether a black sand at the mall is obligated to take a picture with a child dressed in a clan outfit. So then they tried to get him to explain what a Klan outfit is. Yeah. Right. My question would have been. You mean like the one that's like in the back of your closet? Hi. Which is why I will never be on the Supreme Court. Right. But is it me? They sound like callers to right wing radio shows to me. The Supreme Court Justices. What about if? You know, it's like the whataboutism arguments, right? Well, they're not even good ones. Right. You know, they're not even good one about arguments. They're like, you know, the people who do their own research on the Internet and, you know, aha. I found it, you know, I found the landmine that will destroy the libs forever. And it's some bizarre comparison from some political figure they had. They hadn't heard of 15 minutes before they called the radio show.

"Overturn roe versus wade. And one of the proxies for this is their membership in the federalist society. So Robertson Alito were both nominated in 2005, both our members of Leo's federalist society were and Leo played a crucial role in both of their partisan nominations. Clarence Thomas was put on the court before as you already mentioned, but he's a longtime friend of Leonard leos and also a member of the federalist society. Roberts, Alito, Gorsuch Kavanaugh Barrett, all of them were put on the court by Leo. He is responsible for their confirmation. That's 6 votes on the Supreme Court that Leo chose for their ideology, right? He's responsible for the 5 of them being on there. He chose them for their crusader ideology. And I don't think people realize that is why we are seeing what we are seeing right now. So yes, I do think we need to do a lot of work on it. I mean, if I can jump in though, I mean, you say expand the court forgive my ignorance, I'm not a country. Are we talking about a constitutional amendment to get home in the world do you facilitate and expansion of the Supreme Court? And that's one of the reasons that it's such an attractive solution and it works as a check on the court's power. All Congress has to do is pass a law to change the number of justices on the Supreme Court. And all the president has to do is sign it. There are other things we can do and we should do too. We should explore things, we should definitely, as we talked about with Thomas earlier, we should definitely get a binding and enforceable ethics code on Supreme Court Justices that should happen today. We can look at things like term limits. But that's where you get into a little bit trickier situation because the term of the Supreme Court Justices is set in the constitution itself. It doesn't say lifetime tenure says during good behavior, which has been interpreted to mean for their life or until they retire or resign. So that's a harder one I think to get around. There are some really creative possible solutions to that. But I think the simplest, easiest solution, and importantly, one that actually not only checks the Supreme Court, but fixes the immediate problem, and will dissuade future attempts to take over the court for political means, is to expand the court and rebalance it. But it has to happen has to happen soon. And now, I mean, now we're in the point where it has to happen after the midterms. And so it just depends on the outcome of the midterms. Yeah, from your subjective perception, what's a good number? 12, 15. How many justices would you put? So typically people like to say 13 in the past, the number of justices has been tied to the number of circuits that we have in the country. I personally don't have a problem with going for more than that. And one of the argument that I often hear in response is if you expand it, then the other side is going to expand and it's just this tit for tap. And there are two things to note about. There's actually a lot, but I'll just note two things. First, that already happened. They already packed the court with their people, right? And McConnell even changed the size of the Supreme Court when it benefited him politically. He knocked it down to 8 justices for over a year when he blocked Merrick Garland's nomination proceedings because it benefited him and his party politically. And then he pumped it back up to 9 when it benefited his party politically. The number of justices is already a political football. And they deliberately packed

"Test? Well, I think the anti abortion movements contribution was different than the ones we often hear about. So many of us have heard, for example, of the federalist society, which is this sort of flagship of the conservative legal movement. The federalist society, for example, provides lists of promising candidates to Republican presidents from Donald Trump to George W. Bush, this sort of farm league of talent on the right. The anti abortion movement was not particularly focused on the conservative elites, they were focused on convincing regular people who don't know much about the Supreme Court and don't care much about the law to focus on who sat on the Supreme Court when they voted. So many, many of us remember in 2020 when Donald Trump was going to fill the seat vacated by justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg. People at his rallies would chant fill that seat, fill that seat, the sort of regular Americans being that deeply invested in the composition of the Supreme Court. The anti abortion movement did a lot of work on that, explaining that the Supreme Court was the way you would get rid of roe and potentially even get to more than that, like a world in which the Supreme Court says there are fetal rights. So that work went on for a long time. And I think there was also an important contribution from the movement in the sense that you see anti abortion lawyers at some point saying it's not enough to nominate judges who are conservative. It's not enough to nominate judges who are affiliated with the federalist society, we need judges who are not worried about controversy. Because overruling roe may be unpopular, it may produce backlash, and we need judges who are so committed to their interpretive approaches or their ideological worldview, or even to courting controversy potentially, that they'll reverse row anyway. So there's a lot of attention paid within the movement to clarence Thomas's confirmation and to the scandal he faced because of sexual harassment allegations. And involving Anita hill. That within the anti abortion movement was seen as a good litmus test for the kind of judge Thomas could be and there was a sense that if there were more people on the bench who didn't care about public outcry, the end of roe would be that much sooner. So the movement began to focus on finding different kinds of conservative judges, not just people who define themselves as conservative in the first place. A premise of your new book is that the anti abortion movement led to the downfall of the Republican establishment as it was known in the past. What do you think the key thing was that the anti abortion movement to transform the Republican Party? Well, part of the story I told does focus on money and there were obviously other things that weakened the traditional Republican Party leadership. There was the rise of conservative media. So historically establishment politicians often have the best connections to the media. So they had more of a platform, but with the rise of conservative talk radio, Fox News, newsmax and the like, those outlets tended to give a platform to politicians that were the most extreme and the most ideologically pure..

"Story and academic experience. He applied to several, including a research fulbright in Uganda, studying the prison system there. And a Napier fellowship, which awards $20,000 towards a project supporting social change. Kenny butler won both of them. You know, I actually cried and I had to pull over. Yeah, 'cause I was overwhelmed with joy. In addition to the fellowships, Kenny's been accepted to graduate school at Cal poly, for a master's program in public administration. You know, it rained at pores. You know, you work hard to get to a certain point. And when you get acknowledging that way, now you have to work harder to make people know that they pick the right person. When he thinks about the odds of his life, to go to college, to graduate, to win a fulbright, it's pretty overwhelming. His whole life, the odds were always stacked against him. The idea that education paved the way for his future and will for the incarcerated students who follow in his footsteps, that brings him purpose. Wow, Alyssa said this is an amazing story. So as we said at the beginning, starting next year, there could be a whole lot more people like Kenny who can access college classes in prison. Which seems like a no brainer, right? Like why couldn't this happen before? Yeah. You know, for the last quarter century, people in prison have been banned from using federal money to pay for college. It's part of the 1994 crime Bill, which stripped people who are in prison from using pell grants. That's free money. Essentially, overnight, most higher Ed programs in prison disappeared because they didn't have the federal money to support it. Ruth Delaney is with the Vera institute and she studies this. Here's what she had to say. After that bill passed, we went from having upwards of 300 college programs that shrunk down to about 12 in the decade that followed. And so those handful of programs that remain, they were largely funded by private money, like Pitzer's program. Well, why is all of this changing at this moment, like right now? Well, a lot of this stems from a change made under the Obama administration. It was a pilot program called second chance pell, and it opened it up to about 75 colleges. In the last four years, it's reached about 30,000 people in prison. So that was the first step. Research shows that this impacts recidivism, which impacts the bottom line. And so people on both sides of the aisle push to have this ban lifted. And the Trump administration signed the bill that's putting this in place. So it's really a bipartisan issue. And how exactly will this legislation work? So most prison population is low income, so they're going to be able to access pell grants. The pell grant covers about $7000 in tuition. Basically, colleges aren't going to stand up programs so that they can tap into this federal money. And opening up pell grants to people in prison is a huge step, but it's worth noting that money isn't everything. There's going to be a lot of challenges going forward. Kenny, he's exceptional. But a bachelor's degree doesn't erase or make up for a criminal record and so a lot of these folks have a long road ahead of them. Yeah. That is NPR's Alyssa nad where Andy, thank you so much, Alyssa. Thank you. Four 48 the time now on this Tuesday afternoon. Glad you were long for all things considered on 90.1. I'm Jim burris. Leonard Leo of the federalist society is spent decades working to get conservatives appointed to the federal judiciary. He more than any other single person outside of government is responsible for the transformation of the Supreme Court.

newly unveiled Republican anti choice strategy made it clear how crucial it will be to elect abortion rights advocates in November Republican senators have had extensive discussions about the possibility of proposing a nationwide ban on abortion at 6 weeks of pregnancy which is effectively a ban Yeah Entirely So hey Lisa Murkowski and soon student Collins now's the time to fight On the right side of history Yeah Yeah Right so one Senate aide said the first thing a GOP Senate will do is toss the filibuster aside to effectively ban abortion nationwide So Murkowski Collins if Manchin won't do it you join us to blow up the filibuster Whatever this takes you can't give them get away with just this oh I'm just so shocked and disappointed but oh well really Oh well for the rights of millions of Americans Oh well do something Yeah exactly All right it's venting time Kevin and D.C. high calve Good morning everybody Good morning Yes it is venting time And speaking of Friends with

anger Well I am beyond serious I'm not even a woman and I'm pissed off So I can't even begin to understand how women feel This is outrageous And we've been mansplained to I'm sorry even by liberal men on our side about how this would never happen and they're always just going to use this to fundraise I mean again we're sort of half joking but we're not This is exactly the same This is what the federalist society and all this dark money And this is what they've been planning for forever This is not some like oh this was just a political ploy They aren't going to do it Why would you okay I had a actually because I said for God's sake during the you know during the 2016 election I said for God's sake at least I was dispersed At least for the Supreme Court And you know what they told me What if they don't you dare what do you hope someone hostage What does the term don't you dare hold that they don't do their hold of my head or something like that To the point that whatever it was called anyone that called said we were overreacting in 2016 can go off Right Absolutely Seriously And when we're so tired of being told you're overreacting to that Oh you're just being overly emotional And here we are Well let me have a half joke here You know one of the annoying things to people in my state is all the movie all the white savior movies Well you know what This time especially you white ladies some of you who just couldn't vote the business Well this is your chance You can actually be a white SAP because every person of color voting this season wouldn't be to do it Now white ladies who just and a 54% of you voted for Trump this is your chance You can actually be a not only a white saber but a time to wake up dead inside white ladies and I speak as a dead inside white lady So by the way is there did you mean to do that impression is Charlie Brown's teacher I don't want to if there's another accident that we do stereotypical I thought that was the most

impersonation but I got something really really actually very important here and that is this big thing happened on Twitter right now I hope to amplify that is that it is very likely that the leak was actually done by a fanatical Alito clerk and I would tell everyone to go visit a woman a liberal Yale law professor named Amy katzki at Twitter who's got a very fascinating threat about this In fact the draft was first circulated in February Why is it coming out now Well Steve I hear you but the problem is I don't want to engage in this because what the right wing wants us to engage in is distract about the leak when it again as we've said over and over again it is not illegal It's not even prosecutable I mean you know what someone said is if when they investigate this if someone lies to the FBI that's the crime But otherwise as you said Chris is not classified It's not a illegal draft opinion They're trying to make us go oh who did it I mean I don't know Yes there is a lot of

Really excited to chat about Bitcoin and answer your questions. And get to learn more about what's going on. Well, that is great. Well, I was also a little bit about how you got there, but you have an interesting we have sort of a similar background. You were on the hill for a while, Republican study committee, doing some things with them. Tell us how you went from the hill to Bitcoin. Yeah, absolutely. I was a house staff for a Senate staffer. I managed technology policy for the House Republican study committee when you were one of our members. You're on one of our task forces task forces that I was involved with. So definitely appreciate your support there. And I had some initial conversations on Bitcoin back in 2011 and 2012 with policymakers. And then since then, I've been more involved teaching lawyers with the federalist society and then founding this organization, which excited I'm excited to talk about, but I definitely had a lot of experience with some of the real battles back in the Obama administration and then afterwards.

"Something I wanted to mention to you Eric the publisher of the picayune sentinel the former tribune columnist and one of our fellow mincing rascals How are you Eric I'm glad John I should talk to you I quoted you I think accurately maybe not to George will last week Did you catch that I did I'm a faithful listener Of course I caught that Yeah but I hope I represented your thoughts while we were talking about selecting a Supreme Court Justice This conversation continues in America now as the president is considering a woman of color for the upcoming vacancy And so people are talking about whether or not it is appropriate to identify demographically if you will who the justice should be rather than just pick the best person So we had that conversation and I suggested to George will the now contributor to news nations evening newscasts I said maybe your ethnicity or your gender are in fact part of your qualifications how you live your life or how you see the world as a result of your race or gender or whatever else is an important distinction It's as important maybe not as important But it should be considered part of your resume if you will And that the Supreme Court should reflect the hue of America So I put all that before George will and this is what he said Well I'm a little skeptical because Barack Obama when he was president was nominating people including Sotomayor stressed that empathy was an important quality in a judge and I'm not sure It seems to me I want judges to as much as possible fence off their life experiences even in their sympathies for the particular details of a case and focus solely on the law The statute at issue or the constitutional provision I'm skeptical that empathy ought to be dispositive in these cases We put judges in black robes for a reason That is to say that they are now instruments of the court Just think of them as 9 cogs in a judicial machinery and try to think of them not as people with lives off the bench I want the concentrate on the text of the statute or constitutional provision at issue and pretty much only that I think we can have it both ways but anyway what's your reaction to all that Eric Well my reaction is that they're pretty words but the truth is that we have long acknowledged in safe the way we draw political maps way we think of diversity in the workplace where we think of diversity and education that background does matter And you're back on does matter on the court and we have only to look at the thing that I think is most notable here is that what Biden has done is he said the quiet part out loud that for years these appointments have been political And this idea that judges are just people in black robes who are neutral arbiters of the constitutional law That's a fantasy And I don't know how someone as smart as George Wilkins is clinging to that fantasy Let's go back if we will to 1991 when George Bush was senior clearance Thomas who was a career bureaucrat And he'd been on the bench for 16 months And he said this he said he said at the time that this is the most qualified person To be a Supreme Court Justice And everybody knew that that was a lie Everybody knew that they wanted an African American to take the place of thurgood Marshall who was retiring And that they had picked this conservative black jurist who did not have really the resume that many many justices had but I don't recall George will getting up on his high horse and talking about we should pick the best person and not the African American judge So this is independent by the way many judges you might have about clarence Thomas or what he's done in the court since that I think that it was just and that people have also talked about how wild Reagan said that he was going to appoint a woman to the court And Donald Trump said he was going to appoint a woman to the court and you also have Donald Trump you've had a lot of Republicans who are complaining right now that oh President Biden has taken off the table all these qualified jurists Donald Trump came out with a list before the 2016 election of judges that had been essentially picked and vetted by the federalist society And I would call anybody back then going oh he's taken off the table all these qualified charges This is like politics is deeply ingrained in the court and the fact that I got to say that I agree with Lindsey Graham of all people who was on face the nation yesterday And he said put me in a camp of making sure the court and other institutions look like America And that's what we should do here We should have as much as possible every brand justices with varying background look like backgrounds of people who live in a wildlife Okay I'll get off my soapbox now John Well I think the mistake I think the mistake that any of us makes and this is something you and I talked about with John Hansen for that matter is that there's this idea that there's this pyramid and that somebody is on the top and if it's a black woman great but if it's not then that black woman shouldn't take the position of somebody else who's more quote unquote deserving There's no way of determining who's on top So if you just say do you cross a certain bar of confidence And it's not a small bar It's way up there right But if you're qualified to be that then it's utterly subjective then it's up to the president and the Senate And do they like that person or not Yeah it's not like we're taking the 9 people with the highest scores on bar exams to be on the Supreme Court There are a variety of factors that go into how we decide who's on the Supreme Court who is quote unquote qualified to be able to Supreme Court And I believe that one's background does influence the way one reads those cold words on the page that are the law and the constitution And George wells used to imagine that artificial black road you'll be able to define the intent behind those words Well the fact that we have a Supreme Court and we have to always interpret the constitution and always interpreting it through their own lens is clearly that it matters that who's on the court and who is interpreting it And that's why you have you talk about a conservative court We talked about conservative appointments We talk about liberal employees That's what goes on at the court And actually right to talk about the fact that your backhand is part of your qualifications because there is no way to say oh this person is smarter than that person But this person is a better judge than that person And it's very subjective That's a high levels that we're talking about Well shy of tearing up the constitution every 19 years the way my friend Thomas Jefferson wanted us to do And you know rewriting it or amending it every 1920 years What was then a generation to reflect the belief of what justice should be in America We're asking these people to go back and look at something that's 200 years old and try and put a round peg in a square hole If you ask me if I had any way of sort of amending the way we do Supreme Court decisions sure defer to the constitution That's what you do But the constitution to me doesn't seem to be a very good road map for the issues that we're dealing with these days Well it's clearly difficult right To figure out yes when you look at the Second Amendment and the kinds of guns that people had back then the muskets were putting on it to load admire And so on and did be founders and Friends and vision of semi-automatic weapons And very large magazines that could fire a couple of bullets every second It's a question that you really have to have a lot of legal background and it's essentially the ideological and philosophical how will you come down on a question like that Yeah And you know there was an interesting piece over the weekend too about say the Senate is tied does the vice president get to break the tie And one part of the constitution speaks unequivocally that should they be tied the vice president will be.

said pence's aid testified one 6 committee So Pence has recently become aware of what the committee knows It's no wonder if he broke up with the yam dumpster today I still feel like that even at that speech and what he said there was so carefully awarded I feel like he's hedging because he did He has not said that Joe Biden legitimately won a free and fair election That's what he needs to come in Yeah Because he's still hedging for hands on If he were a patriot he would go talk to the January 6th committee without a subpoena Because you know and he goes on to say that the reason he can't do it is so that we have it Clip number 5 Okay here we go Frankly there is no idea more on American than the notion that any one person could choose the American president Under the constitution I had no right to change the outcome of our election And Kamala Harris will have no right to overturn the election when we beat them in 2024 See it's still all politics Yeah And not you know the attempted overthrow of the United States government one more Actually our founders were deeply suspicious of consolidated power in our nation's capital We're rightly concerned with foreign interference in our presidential elections Wait for it If they were decided in our new capital That's why the constitutional convention settled on state based elections And that's also our the United States Senate was right to reject the Democrats latest effort to nationalize our elections just two weeks ago Is he really still think he's going to be president Yeah He does But like this nationalizing elections We're not trying to nationalize elections We were trying to set standards So the people can vote in places where they're trying to make it harder to vote That's not nationalizing elections It's still going to be state run Yeah This is all talking points He's still trying to appease both sides of it Yeah As I said there's literally a low Bill Barr for the Republican Party for doing the right thing Speaking of which Democrats amping up pressure on Bill Barr to testify before the panel saying he has a unique window into the thoughts and actions of Trump leading up to the violent siege He's been an informal talks with these Again if you or any kind of patriot he would just come clean Under oath Yeah exactly Ted lucid Bill Barr would have seen a lot of the actions that the former president took they were either crazy or illegal I think Bill Barr needs to speak to the January 6th committee under oath He said after operating so closely with Trump for a long time something clearly soured the former attorney general bar on him So I'm interested in what the sequence of events was that eventually broke the camel's back That was Jamie Raskin and Ted Lew again said when I was impeachment manager it was clear to me that Bill Barr did not buy any of this elections conspiracy stuff that the former president was advocating He went up to the president's face and told him the election conspiracy theories were both literally The former he is the former attorney general he saw a lot of what happened up close and he has a duty to America into the American people to tell Congress what he knows Thank you He was supposed to be our attorney Our attorney general the American people Jamie Jamie Raskin Ten Okay That's what passes for courage in the Republican Party today Of course it's not courage at the level of Liz Cheney and Adam kinzig or who are willing to call out the big lie in all of its implications I mean Mike Pence should be out there saying that it is a scandal that Donald Trump is dangling pardons in front of hundreds or perhaps thousands of people who participated in the insurrection Yeah thank you one more Virginia You should be calling out the fact that Donald Trump is trying to replace Secretary of State Brad raffensperger with Jodie heiss and he's trying to systematically eliminate anybody from the Republican Party who refuse to do his bidding Uh in the weeks leading up to January 6th Yeah And one more Jamie Raskin I think that Mike Pence could step it up now and he may as well do it because he's clearly going to be a pariah based on having restated the obvious which is he had no power to singlehandedly overturn the election At this point he should tell the truth about the whole thing And he should join the party of democracy here which is not a political party but it's everybody in America who wants to defend our institutions and our values against the GOP Lincoln's party which has become the party of Donald Trump and disunion and violence Thank you So how about this Does he know anything about the draft order about seizing the voting machines That seems important Very important More important than Joe Rogan Yes Weeks after the 2020 election Trump reviewed a draft executive order that authorized the National Guard to seize voting machines and verbally agreed to appoint 70 Powell To investigate a special counsel to investigate election fraud the two previously unreported actions of Trump came during its contentious White House meeting on 18th of December All versions included language that would have allowed Trump to appoint a special counsel to investigate claims of foreign interference in the 2020 election which the Department of Justice had already determined were Bull I says without foundation Sure Okay When Trump summoned Giuliani the former president's attorney said the gambit would work only in the event of clear foreign interference This is the thing that was too crazy for Rudy Giuliani Yeah Okay Powell who spent the previous week filing lawsuits alleging that Iran and China hacked into voting machines sprang up and announced to everyone in the room that she had that she had a full file full of such evidence Giuliani looked at the documents and told Trump that Powell's evidence was worthless accusing her of producing one witnesses who was willing to testify about foreign election interference and around ten people who simply signed affidavits saying they agreed So she found one crazy person to say it and then ten other crazy people to say Hey I heard that too So that was her evidence Okay Wow So even Rudy Giuliani That's not a sculptor It's not gonna work It's not gonna work It's despicable Right That's Oh look at this That's it.

"Latest I'm Julie Ryan This is Bloomberg law with June Grosjean from Bloomberg radio A hundred point Do you know how much that cost us and sponsorship dollars Well with all due respect mister dad I had no idea you'd gotten experimental surgery to have him removed What if what did you say What was that Oh said it was all due respect Look at that That doesn't mean you get to say whatever you want to say to me No no it doesn't mean that You need a convention Look it up That's from the movie Talladega nights the ballad of Ricky Bobby And it's a line 5th circuit judge James Ho referenced in calling out the claims of a dissenting judge who said he was riding with all due respect but then used a quote from Macbeth about the sound and fury of idiots Both pretty mild put downs compared to a recent opinion of 9th circuit judge Lawrence Van Dyke who wrote a concurrence to his own majority opinion dripping in sarcasm about his liberal colleagues These are just the latest examples of the sniping and politics spilling into judicial opinions in the circuit courts Joining me is Ross guberman a legal writing coach who has taught classes for new federal judges for a decade So Ross judge Van Dyke wrote a majority opinion which found that a closure of gun shops due to COVID was a violation of the Second Amendment Then he wrote a concurrence to his own majority opinion in anticipation at the full circuit would reverse his decision How unusual is that So he did something I can't remember seeing before So this is as you said a Second Amendment case The high profile case So he was sort of assuming that the case was going to go on bonk And his concurrence to himself basically tried to write what he thinks the majority will come up with So he wrote an opinion going the opposite way from what he wanted But then what he did is he had all these footnotes and thought bubbles with a very kind of snarky sarcastic tone Essentially claiming that anybody who supports this particular California regulation was just completely making things up and had ulterior motives Almost like to put them on the defensive before they even had a chance to rehear the case Sort of show that you can have a lot of what he would probably say kind of gobbledygook standards and quotations from case law and then take the very strong suggestion that they were slimy for lack of a better word and where we're going to sort of make up the Law & Order to uphold the gun regulation It was dripping in sarcasm I'd say In the past he's accused his colleagues of engaging in mischief and jiu-jitsu compared them to a sullen kid who spits in the cookie jar after being caught red handed What's the point of this do you think to get attention One thing I'd say is he's absolutely not the only judge alive or passed please use any of that rhetoric It's all a question of the degree right And also contacts and substance and points in question As far as he's doing it I mean obviously I can't speak for somebody else but he's a very new judge on the 9th circuit His nomination was controversial I think he's by the ABS aunt and not qualified although many people argued with that conclusion He certainly very smart I mean it's got a great academic credentials but he's a new judge He's in that sort of federalist society for that most of president Trump's judges came from And he sort of signaling we are on to what the liberals see probably call them or Democrats are up to He's taken only bad But he was also you know here we are on discussion has been current in the case that people probably wouldn't be talking about at all He certainly wanting attention maybe the attention of people who might one day nominate him for the Supreme Court It might be that he wants the attention of other judges who are like minded and kind of tell them you know what And I was really purposely snide in sarcastic Maybe you should too So it's probably some combination of all the above I mean I guess we should also take them literally and seriously it may be that just in his mind appalled he thinks that judges are in a bad faith way upholding gun regulations that he would say violate the Second Amendment Maybe he is actually just genuinely really really upset or distraught about it Do you think it hurts the judge's credibility to have opinions that are sarcastic that hurl insults at their colleagues on the bench It's a great question I don't think that happened Really really easy obvious answer So one thing is there's two different ways our sarcastic and opinion The main way tends to be toward the council or the argument kind of implying that an argument was preposterous or ridiculous So I saw it at the lawyers themselves It certainly much rarer although justice Scalia was known to do this from time to time It's rare to take potshots that your colleagues So I would first say that might be different credibility issues depending on which of those universities we're in Is it really just about the lawyers of a cave or is it about judges So in this case we're certainly about judges and it was like a preemptive strike So at this point and I think American legal history a lot of judges are probably just hoping to have credibility with the like minded They're not maybe so much as in the past worried about general credibility I mean there's a lot of tribalism going on in our country as you know I don't think there are view So maybe for his purposes it makes them more credible with people who see the law the way he does and just as I know a lot of judges I'm turning them and I'm friendly with them A lot of people loved it I mean a lot of judges thought it was great Other judges thought it was appalling And they might not be the sarcasm the same way that I might They might say it is warranted and effective Sometimes I really want that ability with This circuit judge James Ho's opinions have also gotten a lot of attention In one opinion that I spoke about at the beginning of the segment he and judge Jacques Weiner were carping at each other Doesn't that affect their relationship on the bench And these judges have to work with each other for years There's no doubt that you're absolutely right I know you're right I hear these things in my work judge Ho is on the 5th circuit that's the circuit is notoriously ten with different factions of judges not being overly fond of other factions Their stories about the pre record justices have intentioned Traditionally.

"They are saying or report on it because it is unless the sentence starts as in another hypocritical move dot dot dot. It is not a serious argument, and it is being put forth by people who are not serious people. It is ridiculous for them to immediately come out and deride Biden's choice. There are a, there are many female black judges and jurists who are exceptional and would do a great job on the Supreme Court and to come out immediately and say, this person is going to be a radical is crazy. You know who does have like a machine and a vetting process in place to vet justices to make sure that they only will do certain things when they reach the Supreme Court. Fucking Republicans do. Hello. The federalist society is their whole vetting mechanism. No justice, no conservative justice has been appointed to the Supreme Court in recent memory without being approved by the extremely conservative federalist society. So like Democrats don't have that machinery in place. It is more projection by conservatives. I personally, the thing that really gets to me is the implication that a black woman wouldn't be qualified because she's just being chosen because she's black. Well, what about all of the white? You think all of the white men who were on the court every single one of them was not chosen because they were white men, like the implication is that white men have the qualifications and capacity and people who are not white men are somehow being given a favor. The other thing to Aaron that's like that I have been frustrated with in the reporting, when people are trying to both sides this is that there is a huge difference between Joe Biden saying even during the campaign saying he would nominate a black woman to the Supreme Court so that the fucking Supreme Court looks like the country.

"But the oral testimony was 5 minutes of me explaining why I think the Supreme Court and its justices need to follow the same type of basic modern governance rules that other branches of government already follow. Everything from having a code of conduct written down beyond basic statutory refusal laws, having a set of details posted on the Internet, like their finances, justices file, annual financial disclosure reports each year, but they're not posted online. They should be justices, three justices, own individual stocks, and they're buying and selling them and during the year and they're jumping in and out of cases, sometimes they're accusing sometimes they not sometimes they miss recusals, sometimes they forget about it. So having periodic transaction reports like numbers of Congress, so we know a little more about their finances. I think would be incredibly helpful, so I mentioned that. And then also just having a better sense of what the justices are saying in public when they leave D.C.. They're flown all around the country, maybe not during COVID, but they're flown all around the country to give these talks to law schools and sometimes partisan organizations. And there's no dedicated Supreme Court press corps, like there is for the president. And I would love for the justices and for there to be pressure on the justices to actually have their out of D.C. talks video recorded or live streams. So we know what they're saying when they're outside of the marble palace. Well, we know what breyers is. Breyers just that dog in the comic with everything on fire saying, this is fine. That's what a 100%. He says that all the time. He's goes on The Colbert Report and all these other late night shows like he does when he think he just came out with a book and he's gone the circuit and everyone's asking him why he's not retiring. And he is giving a series of unsatisfactory answers, which is very much prior. That at least is more consistent with the sort of historical practice of what it used to mean when a member of the federal bench, particularly a sitting Supreme Court Justice, would speak to high schoolers at civic groups at that sort of thing. They had because I did all of that that was my lifelong goal when I was 12 years old, which was to be on the Supreme Court. How's that going? Yeah, not great. Now I've had dick jokes for a living. So took a slight slight detour. I see. But making those types of jokes though makes you more qualified for the Supreme Court now than at any time in recent history. Well, I'm glad that you don't give up on your dreams. But no, I mean, it used to be the case, even when a very conservative jurist would come to speak on a college campus. They had your stock set of nonpartisan kind of civic engagement, like the classic was the, you know, representative versus deliberative models of democracy. It was just the idea, members of Congress could come to college campuses or high schools and throw bombs, but the idea that you would get from either side direct discussion and political or legal advocacy was just kind of anathema to that sense of decorum and dignity of the court. Yeah, I mean, justice Alito gave a whole talk railing against the shadow docket. And he gave a talk effect fed sop during also, you know, both of these were not well, definitely the talk on the shadow docket was not going to be live streams. But then there's all this public pressure. And he's like, okay, I'll live stream it, but you have to destroy the video when I'm done. Okay, cool. Man from uncle or Mission Impossible, right? Yes. It's just so it's so funny. I was reading. It was actually in the presidential commission on this. It was on the Scottish commissions draft report. It was referenced that speech, and then there was a footnote to will update when transcript becomes available or something like that. And I remember taking a screenshot of it and sending it to one of my staffers being like, there's no transcript. It's done. It is over. There's no recording of this talk. He gave the talk. He railed against the shadow docket. It is over, and you're not going to be able to read it back unless there was someone taking screen caps the whole time. Well, maybe now is a good time to introduce my thesis and ask you, I feel free to shoot it down. Sure. Yeah. You didn't have to be that eager, but that is if one of if not the major contributory cause of what we've outlined as the problem of partisanship of outcomes on the Supreme Court is the existence of participation in and control over nominees that the federalist society has shouldn't it have been disqualifying to have been an active member and cheerleader for the federalist society to be on the president's presidential commission. Great, you know, be bipartisan, like I got, I had a long list of unimpeachably conservative judges that you can put on your commission, but if your check goldsmith and you go around and you tweet out, you know, thank you to the federalist society for the outstanding nominees that we've received for the past couple of years. That seems like that's kind of a problem if that's the problem you need to fix. Yeah, I'd go back and forth on this, because I feel like on the one hand when you have 51 senators or however 53 senators, I think at the time when Trump was president, who are also members of the federalist society, it's hard to think of that as disqualifying because that's going to be who they're hanging. It's a very small circle, and that's just going to be who they want to see on the federal bench, especially given that home state senators have such say and they're going to nominate their friends to be federal judges. But if you take a step back and think about how we got to this point, a lot of it is chicken in the egg, right? It's like, are we at this point because we've had a series of random deaths and presidents who aren't winning the popular vote still getting to a point Supreme Court Justices or did we get to this point because the country has totally become unraveled and our justices are just reflecting that..

"Few days ago, President Biden announced all federal employees must be vaccinated against the coronavirus in companies with more than 100 employees either need to make sure workers are vaccinated. Or have them tested once a week. The president using federal authority in regards to work, say workplace safety to guide that policy, and it has some Republicans ready to challenge what they believe is federal overreach. Ted Frank, a Federalist Society member who is the director of litigation at the Hamilton, Lincoln Law Institute, tells me he's not so sure about that. I think it's possible for the presidency use the authority that OSHA has to craft a vaccine mandate with, you know, certain exceptions and limitations that would be consistent with The authority that Congress has granted him. You know, it's also possible for them to do something completely arbitrary and capricious. I'm just assuming that they'll be competent about it and the indications I saw from the president's speech. Where there wasn't actually a vaccine mandate so much as a companies must do things to protect their employees. And they can choose between a vaccine mandate or a, uh, testing regime and and then, presumably, having looked at what The OSHA has already done with health care facilities where they created exceptions for religious exemptions created exceptions for people who weren't interacting with people that you know people working from home and that sort of thing. There's no reason that the Biden administration won't be similarly nuanced in crafting whatever they're crafting. Which nobody has seen yet, so it's really premature to to say we're going to challenge. This is an overreach when we don't know what the president's going to do, and I guess to a certain extent, you know it's possible that they will overreach. But everybody is talking as if this is absolutely An unquestionable overreach and that that's just simply not the case. So you're worried this could set a future precedent that might be regretted. I think that's right. There is a danger when you bring a bad case, saying the president doesn't have the authority to do this sort of thing. When you you bring it on a case with bad facts where the underlying policy is, is reasonable and sort of within. The originalist conception of what presidents and and the federal government is supposed to be doing. You're going to get a very unsympathetic judiciary, and the precedent might not be in the limited case of pandemics. The president Can do this given the congressional authorization and and you could end up with something much broader and more dangerous to future cases.

"Turnstile through which the last three supreme court justices came extremely rare in the world to have a private organization. Become the turnstile for access to a country's supreme court extremely problematic when that turnstile at the same time that it's providing that service is also accepting massive anonymous donations. The idea that there is no link between massive anonymous donations. And who gets through. The turnstile is naive in the extreme and goes against all evidence of human conduct and nature. But that's what we've done. Some other country did this. We'd probably like laugh at them. And send memos saying you really need to clean up your act ghettos. Well we know ourselves. What the feral society does is advanced hundred percenters. So you can't depart from what the federalist society doctrines and the starts in law school and if you're a good boy or girl you get a clerkship and then after your clerkship your prestigious clerkship you go to a prestigious i e very high paying law firm and then if you decide oh i wanna be a federal judge then they steer you there and of course trump pledged to only pick people. Supreme court who were approved by the federal society were listed by the federalist society. That's why i always thought it was funny. Like do you remember. Lindsey graham and gorsuch was going like have you met president trump. Did you meet him before. You're no. I had met him before my my interview if he had said to. You i want you to overturn roe v. Wade what would you have said. And he said. I would have stood up and walked out that door. Remember that not. Because he wasn't out to overturn roe. V wade because that would have been very bad manners of trump gorsuch sensibilities and. I kick myself a lot for not going like you're a smart guy. You voice wanted to be a supreme court justice really you would have been walked out of the room instead of saying i'm as president. I would suggest that you look who sent me. I mean how you need to finish the rest of the sentence. I would have stood up. Walked out of the room gone immediately. See leonard leo. Who runs the court packing scheme.

"federalist society" Discussed on The Al Franken Podcast

"Been on trump's first shortlist for the supreme court which he had released before the two thousand sixteen election and remember during the two thousand sixteen campaign trump pledged to pick only judges whom the federalist society had approved while. I'm sorry i don't want anybody to fill minnesota's vacancy on the circuit who was on the federal societies shortlist. So i go no. I won't turn my blue slip now. What does that mean means. We have a veto citizen in the constitution is just custom. They'd been observed for one hundred years for over one hundred years. And here's what's good about. It what i would have done and what i offered to do is i said. I'll put a bipartisan committee. Together in minnesota a very very respected jurists and law professors and will appoint a republican. I mean we'll pick a republican you for you to nominate that. I will approve. And that's the way it'd been done. And you know what. He ended up getting getting a federal judiciary respected. You get a federal judiciary where you don't automatically know how it a judge is going to rule how a circuit judge is going to rule by what presidency he was nominated by. Because what you end up with are really good. Jurists republicans and democrats. And yeah you get some indication of the leanings of a judge who was nominated by republican president and approved by a republican senator or senate or a judge nominated by a democratic president who i handed in my blue slip four but it really good jurists who people respect but what they did was take away the blue slip. So the stresses on the circuit. And they just populate they go boom boom boom boom boom boom boom right wing right wing right wing right wing right wing federal side feral saif federal citing by the way. Do you remember trump saying very often. Well there were all these vacancies. Shame on obama. No shame on cruise. Shame on mcconnell. Shame on rand paul. Shame on cornyn because they wouldn't turn in their blue slips and they wouldn't appoint a committee to pick someone who's reasonable. They just wanted to hold that seat open until they got a republican president. So that's why there were all these.

"We read the first part of this about by the way. This email was sent. So so this was sent as an email on the internal stanford law student list-serve right. So it's like couple hundred. People who were law students. Professors have access to this right. That that's at this. Is this basically the equivalent of like posting in the campus quad. Right and the f- the fake flyer was sent around on january. Twenty fifth. Three weeks after the capital insurrection. Right so that no. I know possible. Danger that anybody thinking about this for a tenth of a second could thought that this was a real event but the you read. You're not carefully you miss. The riott information will be email. You missed the grubhub coupon. Here's the tech this. The full text read this. Because it's delightful please join the stanford federalist society as we welcome senator josh hawley and texas attorney. General ken paxton to discuss violent insurrection. Violent insurrection also known as doing a coup is a classical system of installing a government although widely believed conflicted every way with the rule of law. Violent insurrection can be an effective approach to upholding the principle of limited government. Senator hollywood argue that the ends justify the means attorney. General paxton will explain that when the supreme court refuses to exercise. Its article three authority. To overturn the results of a free and fair election calling on violent mob capital represents an appropriate alternative alternative remedy. Is it satire. That led somebody whose name has been redacted to protect this person and others from stanford's federalist society to file a one and a half page complaint with the university Accusing this student. Nicholas n wallace who By the way like once his name to be public right like he's he's communicated with mark stern from sleep like that's why we're using his name and not the cowards who who wrote this. It says on january twenty fifth twenty twenty one at eight thirty eight. am nicholas wallace. Sent an email to stanford law school's law talk email list serve where he impersonated the stanford federal society a student group through a false event flyer and attributed false and defamatory beliefs to the persons that he listed on the event flyer Then it describes the situation It says he clearly impersonated by labeling. It as being the stanford federalist society presents and you know use their logo and this is easily recognizable to other students and then a complaint that the end other student groups have asked to cancel joint events planned with the federalist society as a result of the controversy greeted by this email. Good and we. As officers of the organization feel that our individual reputations have been heart so federalist society stalwart defenders of freedom of speech whined about a parody email it caused stanford to not only open up disciplinary proceedings. against nicholas wallace but that placed a hold on his graduation is in the middle of finals. Week right and i can tell you like look even as a three al like you. Ca- your finals are hard you care about cramming for finals and you know the difference between getting good grades rally you know. Are you graduating with honors. Look it is. It is a hundred percent clear how this materially interferes with a Graduating students Expectations from the university. You can't registered to take the bar if yeah they've got a hold on your diploma right like all sorts of things now. The good news is thanks. Only right to mark. Joseph stern of slate magazine. Who broke the story yesterday. As we are recording this today he was contacted by stanford spokesperson Who says that. The school has dropped the investigation And then nick wallace center around an email to the entire serve list-serve that says I just wanted to let you know that the office of community standards has dropped the complaint against me. the degree conferral hold has been lifted from my count. Thank you for your support and personal messages in satirical law talk emails and so many other ways you've shown what a wonderful community we have over here. I hope that's not the end of the conversation. We've been having with that in mind. I hope to work with stanford in the little time that i have left to make sure no other students objected to an abuse of process in this way again and to develop better protections for students freedom of expression. Thanks for your support. Ps this email is not satire. it so again. Let's explain the significance of that. Unquestionably under the leonard law nicholas wallace had a knock dead just a one hundred percent. Likelihood of success of suing stanford right. Yeah could have well fortunate though. Andrew is that there aren't any lawyers that this law school to be able to. You know say liked evaluate the law this poor law school. How would they know the lied. I don't understand how the law school supposed to know that. This is obviously free speech. That's legal in every context and ever. So how'd they know there's poor poor lost weight their law school. God i can't. I've seen all the tweets it's good. There's been a lot of response. I think laurence tribe was like. Hey isn't this a law school. Essentially like lord strips mocking an ideologically based group can't be made a basis for denying academic privileges in any open society. Where the respect if accurate this report shows stanford law school to be unworthy of treatment as an academic institution. Okay student complaint. You should investigate complaints. The school should have been like. Why don't we take take complaints seriously. Want to make sure everything's going above board here. Nobody's harassing anybody or anything bad. And then you look at me like oh okay dismiss. Like you know should have been like a one week process. Yup yup god. Yeah no that that is exactly right and and again right. Let's let's be clear about this that this was sent the same day january twenty fifth right so yeah it does not take four months to look at a flyer that is very very clearly meets the first amendment standards for parody right. We have talked about that right. Like the that is the falwell v flint case right that is a parody ad for campari liqueur. That uses the logo of camp about like. It's totally obvious that nobody reading it would think like jerry. Falwell really gave an interview to playboy hustler magazine. In which he intimated that the first time he had sexual intercourse with his mom in the outhouse after they'd kicked out the goat just like nobody could look at this and think that the stanford federalist society wanted to time travel to give out cookies. So that you know you like or even if they did like yeah that is kind of would look. This is at so. Let's let's say though. If you don't mind so i thought you're gonna take us through a further legal history. That would lead us to not that current state of. Are you telling me that. Even today in california school universities you can say anything that is protected outside universities and never face discipline from the university for it as long as it wouldn't be illegal speech so i will read you. The few exceptions that are contained within the leonard law. Right so i already read you a b. Is what gives you the right to sue and says that you can get attorney's fees see says this does not apply to an institution that is controlled by a religious organization because of course it doesn alan to the extent that the application of the section would not be consistent with a religious tenets of the organization so again. Remember when. You're right wing. Uncle frank is talking. About how much liberals hate the first amendment religious right wing organizations went to the legislature and said. Yeah we went the first amendment apply everywhere. I mean not to us of course and that the worst most restrictive most horrendous speech codes anywhere are those imposed by right wing. Evangelical.

"federalist society" Discussed on Bloomberg Radio New York

"All these rumors out there financed. You see, this is a technical correction. Investment. What do you have looking at? Give you some sort of compass. Through this period, The Bloomberg surveillance podcast lots and lots of talk about what the Fed should Shouldn't date Tom Keen, Jonathan Farrow, Lisa Abramowitz and the names that shape the world's markets speak with Professor Schiller of Yale University. Bloomberg Surveillance. Listen today at Bloomberg, Calm the Bloomberg business half or subscribe on Apple podcasts. You're listening to Bloomberg Law with Joon Grosso from Bloomberg Radio. I've been talking to Bloomberg Legal reporter Madison older about the conservative legal movement, which until now has been united behind shared goals of filling the federal bench with like minded judges and advocating shared principles grounded in originalism. The movement appears to be facing something of a reckoning. Post Trump liberals often see the conservative movement as one big movement. But have there been factions within the conservative movement, So I took Tomo Professor Stephen tell us Who's written about conservatives, he wrote a book about those who were never trump. He also wrote a book about the conservative legal movement. And he said that that is a tendency to kind of see the conservative movement from the left is being unified, but We've always had a variety of different views and that perhaps the event the electric phone claims the events of January 6th have kind of highlighted that in a way that hasn't really been seen before that there is Kind of fracturing that he also sees happening on the left a swell explain for those who don't know. Explain what the Federal of society is so federalist Society, you know it. It describes itself as kind of a networking group kind of a debate club of sorts for conservative and libertarian Blair's They hold events. They hold an annual. Then they do panels, really the backbone of the organization is Their groups on college campuses. And you know on law school. It helps. Get conservative thinking young lawyers together to hear from different speakers and one of their policies. They don't comment on Political issues. Um, you know it's on their website. Big reiterated that they don't comment on political, she said. That is what happened in this case as well. They're still not commenting on this. Which You know, Some of the lawyers that I spoke to were a part of the Federalist Society respect and say that you know they may be shouldn't comment on this, And they like that They do that, the others saying Maybe this is the scenario where they We need to win and say something, especially about John Eastman, who is a member of one of their groups that plans some of these events and then get the Seeker's together. You talk to the co founder of the Federalist Society. What was his reaction, So his reaction even told Ruthie is Ah, Professor now is a co founder of the Federal Society, and he has both supported Trump in office and and he's you know, recently not supported. Trump in an office, so he's kind of going back and forth on this over the years and you know he basically he did not agree with any of these elections on claims. He said that conservatives Have erred and not accepting the results of the election, and the support first from some conservative lawyers of this is kind of detrimental. So the federal society helped Trump in forming the list of Supreme Court justices and judges that he nominated. They were very active in that role, or at least Leonard, Leo Woz. Do any of them feel like even though Trump help them accomplish this incredible goal of transforming a large part of the judiciary to conservative judges. Do any of them feel that their movement was corrupted by trump something that 100 word for me by a few different people I spoke to was They believe that the way that Trump's own appointees treated these election front claims which was by and large throwing them out, you know, calling them for what they were rejecting them on the marriage. They threw them out because they were baseless. And you know, at least one conservative Larry Libertarian lawyer Jonathan Adler's there's authorities. Western told me that he thinks that is evidence that the movement wasn't corrupted by Trump that You know these conservative judges, many of whom are part of the Federalist Society, when it came down to it didn't side with the president. And they said What? The law Woz and it wasn't that there was Election fraud. What are the paths for the federal society going forward? I spoke to refuse, but your society members for the story and He described the path forward that involves holding some of their own cannonballs. Maybe holding Eastman accountable and there's movement. We got a few background sources confirmed that They're the movement to unseat him from this position on one of the practice group that organizes some of these meetings, you know, another conservative lawyer told us that they had sent a letter to leadership. Asking that he's your removed from your crude speakers left. There was another letter of FEMA TV earlier from his fascist group role as well. So there is a movement internally to take action, which is Any significant for conservatives to who kind of reject the left Campell culture, Um, in a few of them have has been careful to note that they don't agree with cancel culture, but they would like to see them take some kind of action on these men and No other Where's describe maybe a path where Seekers who are political, like Holly or cruise that there ever to speak of events in the future wouldn't be highlighted. Or maybe the organization wouldn't wouldn't have them come a speakers and, you know, basically Severing the ties between conservative lawyers and politicians with the legal background, the visitors a few things that people talked about, But of course, he's of the opinion that was just, you know, a few conservative lawyers. And it really going to be up to the federal society on where this ends up going. That was going to be my next question, because I wondered how much of the Federalist Society feels the way you've been describing. Some of these conservatives feel and how much of the federal society thinks. You know, everything's fine. Let's just go ahead the way they've been going. Any feel for that. That's one thing. That's one of the reasons why we wanted to look at this because the federal society doesn't take political opinion something so in a way, it's an organization made up a lot of its members. And so it is going to delegate that to its members, his numbers opinions on things like this really matter. And, you know, at least with the people that we spoke to, Um there are a lot of people that feel like something does need to happen here or that, you know, maybe there needs to be a different way to handle these types of speakers and and how the organization moves forward after this, but I think ultimately it's It's a little hard to tell exactly what's gonna happen in unorganized ation like this, because when you're a debate club and you are So focused on on having a diverse array of perspective. Having decisions ultimately get made is not really one of the elements of the date. So it will be interesting to see if the federal Society ultimately decides to pick in your direction or if they hold to what they've done in past, which is Not saying anything to the Foster that debate culture.

Here's what we know about Trump suggesting the idea of delaying the November election

"Do. But the mere suggestion by President Trump about changing the election date is causing extreme concern. He tweeted quote, delay the election until people can properly securely and safely vote, followed by three question marks. Republican Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell dismissed the idea in an interview with W N k y 40 never in the history of the country through wars, depressions. And the Civil war, and we ever not had a federally scheduled election on time, and we'll find a way to do that again this November 3rd, we're going to talk about Republican reaction to the president's suggestion with Sarah Longwell, She's the executive director of Republicans for the rule of law. Morning, Sarah. Thanks for being back in the show. Thank you for having me. I'm going to read the president's entire tweet and then ask you about it, he says, quote with Universal mail in voting parentheses, not absentee voting, which is good. 2020 will be the most inaccurate and fraudulent election in history on then he goes on to suggest that delay that we talked about you have said everything in his tweet is a lie. Walk us through that. Well, first of all, like you, said Trump cannot change the date of the election. The date of the election is constitutionally mandated and ultimately under the purview of Congress. But the you know the bigger issue is is honestly the vote by mail on the fraud. I mean, I really think there's two things going on here in terms of why, Trump said this tweet. The first is that the president is trying to change the subject away from Yesterday's historically bad GDP numbers, which came out, you know, just shortly, and coincidentally before his tweet on, there are plenty of other stories that he wants to distract from the moment whether it's the Russian bounties or his bad polling, etcetera, the president always had kind of Ah, low cunning. When it comes to understanding how to control narratives, So this looks like a classic case of calculated misdirection. But the bigger goal I think is about generally sowing distrust in the outcome of the election and laying the potential groundwork toe either dispute the results or claim it was rigged. So that he could be perpetually aggrieved. If he loses. We saw the president do this in 2016 on do you know he really only has a few plays in his playbook, and he tends to run them over and over again. But I think that it's you know, everybody sort of reacted to the idea that Hay was talking about delaying the election. But I think what's most concerning is just this general tryingto undermine confidence in the upcoming election because that is that's scary at a time when the election is going to look different to people because we're in the midst of a pandemic because there'd be so many mail in ballots. Well, let me ask you about Republican response. When we played that McConnell clip. We also heard Republican Senator John Cornyn of Texas say, Hey, this is just the president troll in the press. But yesterday, the co founder of the Federalist Society, Steven Calabresi, wrote this op ed in The New York Times, saying that this is grounds for immediate impeachment and Calabresi as someone who has supported Trump a lot in the past. Yeah, you know, While there were no profiles in courage from the Senate Republicans who should have issued clear, thorough repudiation Sze of his comment. The one real bright spot was that the founder of the Federalist Society came out and just in no uncertain terms condemned this called it Fascist, said that the president It would be warranted for him to be impeached again. That is strong language, and I think that sends a really strong message to the conservative legal community that nobody should be defending this kind of behavior and that the highest levels of sort of conservative Legal ethics would not agree with anybody defending this.

"Who bears the responsibility for the opioid crisis in this country two decades and more than two hundred thousand overdose deaths later today is the first in the opioid epidemic that aims to answer that crucial question the first landmark federal opioid trial begins this morning in Cleveland six companies that earn billions of dollars making distributing and selling opioids are being sued by two counties in Ohio the trial is seen as a bellwether test the jury's decision will establish liability for the entire drug industry for the role that it played fueling the epidemic north country public radio's Brian man covers opioid litigation for NPR he joins us from Cleveland Brian thanks for being here hi Rachel these companies being sued include some big names Walgreens McKesson cardinal health they were all hoping to avoid a trial right to try to negotiate a cell as a settlement even up to the last minute what happened why couldn't they get that done yeah I was pretty intense in the last days top executives flew her to Cleveland to meet with the judge overseeing this case and a source involved with the talks told NPR companies were offering a billion dollars a year over the next eighteen years and also offering to donate billions of dollars worth of prescription drugs to be used to help people suffering from addiction that sounds like a lot but given the scope of this epidemic you know hundreds of thousands of Americans dead many more suffering now from addiction communities and some state attorneys general they just wanted companies to pay more so now the trial's going forward thousands of communities obviously are going to be watching this just describe what's on the line for them yeah I've been speaking over the last year to a lot of local officials and first responders medical professionals and they just said they need money to fight this epidemic to pay for things like law enforcement in hospitals and foster care programs a lot of people are still dying in this epidemic so if there is a big payout that money could say lot save lives critics of the drug into he said there's something else at stake here too Rachel a sense of accountability and justice Kathryn Clark is a congresswoman I spoke with in Massachusetts we have to make an example of this corporate greed that delivered such devastation to communities throughout this country so you know there's a lot of anger out there this trial's going to test whether that anger really translates into arguments that hold up in court I should add the Johnson and Johnson lost a civil trial this summer in a state court in Oklahoma so you know if the industry loses again here in this federal court it will start to look like a trans so how do they avoid that what arguments of the companies making what the big argument is that they're selling a highly regulated product that you can't buy without a prescription the federal government did know all along how many pills they were selling so you know the companies are going to make the case to this jury that it was a regulatory failure a government tell your and and not a corporate failure I understand there's a new argument being made here by the communities who are are doing the suing in in this case it's it's around a public nuisance claim can you explain this yeah this is actually fascinating rates on it could have big ramifications he's opioid lawsuits claim the drug companies created a public nuisance selling these medications so aggressively public nuisance laws never been used in exactly this way before so this parts experimental and some conservative legal thinkers especially those working for the drug industry hope the jury won't go for it they say the job of solving big public problems like the opioid epidemic should belong to state legislatures and Congress not the courts here's Luther strange is a former Republican senator from Alabama now a private attorney working for members of the Sackler family who own Purdue pharma he spoke about these public nuisance lawsuits to a gathering of the federalist society I've read actually written on this recently it's because it is a blooming problem it comes up the system it prevents the ease of settlement of large cases now and just in the opioid world you have two thousand towns and cities and municipalities now she's a pretty form is not on trial in this case they filed for bankruptcy last month so their liabilities being hashed out in a different court but this federal trials can impact the rest of the industry testing whether thousands of these public nuisance lawsuits will hold up if they do hold up in this court the payouts could be on the scale of the tobacco settlements of the
