Megan Basham Takes on the So-Called 'Respect for Marriage Act'
"We begin? What's on your mind? Well, you know, one of the big topics I'm tracking right now and I think we're all talking about it is what's happening with the very misnamed respect for marriage act. I call it the disrespect for marriage act. So essentially what this is is a bill in the Senate that enshrines same sex marriage into the law legislatively. And of course, we know that it has been the law of the land since 2015 since the obergefell decision came down from scotus. But there were possibilities that it could be overturned based on the Dobbs ruling. So what we saw in that case was that, yes, the justices ruled that roe V wade should be overturned because it was bad precedent. It wasn't grounded in the constitution. They said it did not apply to the obergefell ruling, but justice clarence Thomas, my personal favorite justice, wrote a concurrence in which he argued that point. He basically said, look, if roe should be overturned with Dobbs, there's no precedent for having obergefell. So what we're seeing now is the Senate trying to sort of fix that gap legislatively. And it's a very aggressive Bill and to everyone shock 12 Republican senators joined that bill in order to advance it to the fore.

"Founder of colony capital, took the stand in his own defense and testified that his support for his longtime friend Donald Trump proved disastrous for him and his company. And Supreme Court Justice clarence Thomas gives Republican senator Lindsey Graham a reprieve from testifying before the special grand jury investigating criminal interference in the 2016 election in Georgia. Republican senator Lindsey Graham has been fighting a subpoena to testify before a special grand jury in Georgia since July. Now he's asking the Supreme Court to intervene and justice clarence Thomas has done that, at least temporarily. Graham is arguing that the constitution speech or debate clause shields him from having to testify. But a federal court rejected his arguments and ordered Graham to testify before the grand jury investigating whether then president Donald Trump and others illegally tried to influence the 2020 election in the state. That order was a firm unanimously by a three judge panel of the 11th circuit Court of Appeals that included two Trump appointees. Fulton county district attorney Fannie Willis wants to question Graham about two phone calls he made to Georgia Secretary of State Brad raffensperger in the weeks after the election. Raffensperger told CBS he took Graham's questions about absentee ballots as a suggestion to toss out legally cast votes. During our discussion, he has to balance clean match back to the envelope. The absentee ballots be matched back to the envelope. I explained our process after it went through two sets of signature match at that point they were separated. But then senator Graham applied for us to audit the envelopes and then throughout the bouts for counties who had the highest frequency error of signatures. And that I tried to help explain that that's because we did signature match. You couldn't tie the signatures back anymore. You know, to those ballots, just like with if you voted in person, my name is not on my ballot. And so it can't be tied back to me. It's really something that's been around for over a hundred years.

"Court. What does it tell you that the Supreme Court agreed to hear them when, like so many other cases, this term, it didn't have to, meaning there was no circuit split that it had to resolve. Yeah, so one of the most common reasons the Supreme Court takes the case is because of circuit splits, where two federal courts are in disagreement with each other and they need the Supreme Court to weigh in and resolve the dispute. The problem in this particular case is that the 9th circuit Court of Appeals opinion had its own intrinsic split. There were three judges on the panel and they wrote three different opinions that were wildly different from each other. They were not in sync with each other. So though there wasn't a circus split, there was an intra panel split. Now normally those could resolve by what's called an on bonk procedure. The federal appeals court can say we need to have more judges listen to this case so that we can figure out how to come up with a more harmonized resolution. The 9th circuit didn't do that. So because the 9th circuit opinion was so messy and the 9 circuit didn't clean it up, it created the possibility for the Supreme Court to say there's a mess here that we need to resolve. Two of the opinions also basically said, we think section two 30 is a problem. And so it created a flag for the Supreme Court to pay attention. There's a statutory problem here that needs attention. Maybe you ought to take a look. So it was a combination of the messy opinion plus what the judges said that I think attracted the Supreme Court interest. Justice clarence Thomas had already expressed interest in indicated that he's willing to change the law if Congress isn't. Well, we have to assume that justice Thomas was in favor of Kieran this case because he's basically begged plaintiffs to bring section two 30 cases to him, so he can find a way to try and eviscerate it. So we know that justice Thomas is already coming in as an extreme section two 30 skeptic. He's literally told us when nobody asked him to. Google's chief executive officer told lawmakers last year that revoking section two 30 would mean that platforms would either over filter content or not be able to filter content at all. Do you agree with that? I do, and it's a very well-known phenomenon with online content. It's something that I call the moderator's dilemma. The idea is that if you're liable for trying and failing, then either you don't try at all so that you can't fail. So you just let everything go through, therefore you have an intervened at all or you over respond and make sure you don't fail, which is impossible, but it leads to lots of collateral damage as well. There is of course the third option, which Google isn't likely to do, but many other services will, which is to exit the industry and say that it's not profitable to do nothing or to be perfect and therefore we have to simply find another line of business. And Eric, the cases involving Texas social media law and Florida social media law, where there's a split in the circuits involving similar laws. Do you think the court will take that case? I do think they're going to take the case. And the reason why in part is because of a

Who is behind that? Well, you know, I grew up in Detroit, a very liberal place. And Boston a very liberal place. Went to New Haven, a very little place, and then Ann Arbor, very liberal place, and in Baltimore, very little place. So I was a very liberal individual. Until I did something that the liberal has never supposed to do. I listened to a conservative, I listened to Ronald Reagan. And I said, this guy sounds just like my mother. He's saying exactly the same stuff the same philosophy. And I started really examining my belief system. I was noticing that so many of the patients that I was seeing at each Baltimore.

I think it's actually more likely if there is to be national legislation that the next time we have a Republican Congress and a Republican president, we might see a national abortion ban in which case, abortion would be illegal, not just in those states that forbid it, but throughout everywhere states like New York, California. Wow. We have so much to figure out here. The president and speaker Pelosi have suggested that this opens the door could set precedent to overturn other rights, same sex marriage, a contraception even. Is that an extreme view, Michael, or is that in fact possible? Justice clarence Thomas wrote a concurrence in the case saying that he would like to do exactly that. He says that the constitutional rubric under which the court had recognized the right to abortion, what is sometimes called substantive due process. Should be abandoned across the board. And he singled out the court's rulings that protected a right to same sex sexual relations, the same sex marriage, to contraception. He left open the possibility that in his view, those rights might be protected under some other provisions. That seems very unlikely. I should say just as Alito in his majority opinion says that you don't need to worry about that. He doesn't intend to do that, that that's different. But as the dissenters point out and as I think the logic of justice Thomas concurrence says, it's not clear that he'll hold that line. So I think there will be a concerted effort, at least to bring to the court cases that provide the possibility of overturning those other rights. If I had to bet, I would say they won't do it. But it's not because it doesn't follow logically from the opinion. But it's not a false conversation for us to have right now though. Correct. Last minute here, Michael, I really appreciate your expertise as we hear from Democrats about moving forward with legislation. How would that look? We understand that this could be tied up in court. What is the legislative answer to this if Democrats have the numbers? Well, of course, at the state level, it's the abortion right is already protected for the most. Yeah, how about in Congress? Right. So Congress would have to pass a law. As I said, it would have to, this is not a budget bill. So it can't be done through the so called

"News And it reports this week from The Washington Post and CBS News details how the wife of Supreme Court Justice clarence Thomas apparently urged the former White House chief of staff to overturn the 2020 election Text messages obtained by Bob Woodward and Robert Costa show that Virginia Thomas and Mark Meadows exchanged at least 29 text messages in the critical weeks after the vote This morning Washington Post reporter Carol leonnig on this breaking report You know what's a startling about the texts that were obtained by my two great colleagues the two bobs Woodward and Costa is that they reveal a sitting justice as wife pressing on a matter that the president wanted to take to the Supreme Court And that is Donald Trump thought repeatedly for a way to get the Supreme Court which he thought was in his favor generally to negate the results of a free and fair election that delivered victory to his opponent Joe Biden made his opponent the new president Of course Trump was trying to undermine reject and rebut and block this at every turn And what Jenny Thomas was doing was saying she was on the president's side over and over again to his chief of staff And Carol it's impossible to say whether clarence Thomas agreed or advised his wife on her mission to overturn the election But he was the only justice who agreed to block the House committees request to get White House records for the January 6th investigation What are the optics there It looks horrible A sitting justice on a case in which the law is so clear I mean every single academic who studied the constitution and the law finds that the archive and the president the sitting president Joe Biden have the authority to determine that these materials can be turned over to the committee and that former president Trump has no right to try to block that on the argument of executive privilege So with very thin to none in the way of legal basis justice Thomas says he wouldn't agree to turn them over Now as we know these records show that his wife was a pretty vocal activist and advocate for president Trump's side Are we in unknown terrain here as far as the legal implications Is it just another item for the House committee investigating all this or what could it mean I think it means more than just the committee's investigation I think it means a lot more for justice Thomas And his insistence that he doesn't need to declare he has any conflict And virginie Thomas to say that there is no conflict Now there is certainly the appearance of it There has been for a while but this puts it in another realm As for the committee I don't think that the Thomas texts to Meadows show anything of worry either for criminal exposure for Meadows or for her It's really about how much a sitting.
