"The Democrats have done a really foolish thing by shutting down all these campuses foolish for them there it's going to remove ballot harvesting opportunities and all their voter fraud that they usually do on college campuses They're actually removing like half a million votes off the table. So please keep the campuses close like it's a great thing so. Whatever? Keep. The of folks we don't want those half million people voting that young manage Charlie Kirk he's a member of the movement. He's a made man. So to speak, he was the first speaker, the Republican National. Convention August. If I ask one thing here it is pleased twenty years from now. Please I beg you spare me the long up Ed's about how we can trust Charlie Kirk to be a fair minded member of the Supreme Court. To talk about the president's plan to push the election to friendly supreme. Court I'm joined now by Brian Fallon Co founder and Executive Director Demand Justice in two thousand sixteen serves the National Press Secretary for Hillary. Clinton's presidential campaign. senior editor legal correspondent for slate. She wrote today about the heartlessness of Amy Coney Barrett's originalism. Brian I start with you because you've been in the trenches of the these judicial fights. For a while and I've watched you I've known you for Awhile and I've I've read what you had to say for a while and I've watched it radicalize you over time. I think is you have appreciated the full scope of what the conservative legal movement has built is that is that fair and what do you? What do you say when you watch? A possible third Bush v Gore lawyer about to ascend to the court. The S Chris Absolutely. So this is the culmination of a forty year project Dalia Awhile, knows can attest to. That began with the founding of the Federal Society and what are sort of the animating impulses that have driven this movement over time to take over the courts while sure it is all about overturning Roe and it is all about expanding the view of the Second Amendment, and that's what sort of helps build the foot soldier army at a grassroots level for this project on taking over the courts. But what are the other big things that it's about about entrenching Republican political power and so I thought it was interesting. Last term that even though John Roberts sort of chose his spots carefully departed from the Conservatives on a certain number of cases. One of the places he's been remarkably almost one hundred percent consistent in voting with the conservative block is when it comes to voting related cases, the election law matters He's a consistent reliable vote for the Republicans and just this week as the hearings are going on while we're all sort of participating in this charade and asking questions of any amy Tony. Barrett that she has no intent to answer what is the Roberts Court do? It announces that it siding with the trump administration on this request to? Prematurely, suspend the senses so that we can have a massive under the table collar which would contribute to the rigging of the drawing of Congressional districts for another ten years. So my point to Democrats is we have to realize what we're up against here. This is Donald Trump is saying out loud that he the reason he wants to shove this nominee through before the elections because he's intending to contest the election results any needs the fifth vote for maybe conybeare because he doesn't even trust John Roberts So Democrats I, thought approach the hearings this week as they would any other set of confirmation hearings and I think they're missing the the ball in terms of exactly what's at stake here? I think it's democratic rule overall that is in jeopardy. If Amy Coney barricades onto the court, you know w one of the one of the frustrating to me fictions here right is it like there is a conservative legal movement it's not a conspiracy. It's like actual out in the open project and there's people that published articles about returning the conception, the constitution to the LOCHNER era right back pre new deal about what you can and can't regulate and what laws passed constitutional muster, and they're very open about it. Right. There's a project to do that, and then there's participants in that they're very, very accomplished very smart. Very you know a good writers who come up through the through the sort of. Pyramid of this project and then when they get to the top as a judge. The pretenses that like they get this like men in black where they lose all prejudices, an all beliefs and everything they put on the robe and they become blind justice. I it's just very hard for me to swallow them too cynical. I don't think so and I just WanNa flag because you said, you've watched Brian get radicalized I. Think I've gotten radicalized since the last time I saw Bryan. When he couldn't quite get made a pledge said, I believed in special reform in I have been just gobsmacked up Chris by what I've seen in the last couple of weeks and I'm just going to add to data points to your. I think immaculately argued introduction of what you just said now one is that we've heard Leonard Leo Leonard Leo all week Right Shendole Shel- Sheldon Whitehouse has been very clear. About the machinery that you described and how the Federalist Society is sort of written off debate society of benign place for like minded conservatives to float ideas. In May open secrets in The Guardian revealed that Leonard Leo Kerry Severino actually were funneling money to incredibly Orwellian creepy new honest elections project. So this was actually sending money to an effort to suppress the vote in states in they were spending. Huge money moving from this judicial project to over votes oppression and I think it goes right to your introduction Chris that they've given up even on selling. Ideas even on grooming young conservative judges. Now, there's all out going to Colorado Florida and Michigan. In spending money writing letters, threatening elections, officials, floating ads saying vote fraud people are cheating suppressing the vote in i..

"Beaubourg when the authors of that Washington Post report, I'm going to Lille Melissa Murray, professor at New York University school law co author long my wife, Kate Shaw of the new book, reproductive rights and Justice stories shown, let me start with you on your reporting people have known about Leonard Leo. He's not a Hidden Figures. Not in the shadows. He was profiled in the New Yorker lot of your investigation is just about the sheer scope of the various enterprises that he's running as part of this effort, right? And the reason we decided to take a look at Leonard Leo is clearly, the conservative legal movement is having a moment, the stars are aligned in Trump. They have a president who has adopted an ideological viewpoint that they've supported for decades, and what Leonard Leo has done over that same time period, is building infrastructure of nonprofit groups, that he's harnessed in these last few years to build a huge support network for Trump's nominees now Leonard Leo. I should point playing two roles. He's Trump's judicial advisor. So he's helping Trump. Come up with a list of nominees for the federal bench behind the scenes less visible role. He's playing is according donors, raising money and generating support through a multifaceted, media campaign, a political style campaign to support those very, very judicial nominees that cube come up with a number of two hundred fifty million dollars dark money for these groups to, to push this agenda, which is which is a lot of money. There's this quote, I thought Melissa because obviously what's happened. Here is the president got to Justice spring court, including the seed of Anthony, Kennedy was heard of the dividing, thought upholding Roe that was the understanding of, how things would be. And then all these states started passing these bans, because they wanted to go before the court. This is a quote from Williams, a prominent conservative legal out of just back in twenty seventeen. He says, no one has been more dedicated to the enterprise of buildings bring court that overturn Roe v Wade than the federal societies Leonard. This is certainly. The case and somewhere Leonard Leo is sitting back stroking, a hairless cat, and laughing maniacally because he's an exactly what he said out to do. This is a project that was twenty years in the making seating, these conservative judges, cultivating them bringing them up through the ranks. And now in this case of Neil Gorsuch, and cavenaugh seating than on the supreme court. It's a deep network. It's one with lots of tentacles on Don Mcgann talking about over the last couple of weeks is deeply embedded in this meadow of society network part of his role as legal counsel in the White House was to help shepherd conservative judges through to confirmation. And he stayed around long enough to get both Gorsuch, and Brad Kavanagh onto the supreme court and then his mission, fulfilled. He's out. There's, there's also the strange relationship, Sean here, which is always, there's always consultation with outside groups. And all this Mcgann was a key figure Melissa just said, but there's a degree of outsourcing to the kind of enterprise, Leo has built because it's so sort of big sophisticated, because it has such sort. Fick network, capital that really that seems like the enterprise. It's kind of doing the heavy lifting on the judge judicial front. Right. And as I mentioned, earlier, Leo really isn't a singular position because he has this, this formal role as an advisor, although he's not a government employee, and he's also raising money from undisclosed donors..

"Really pressed the issue on sidelining him, if they had known more of this or have been more with this knowledge, if they had it that could have actually sunk the cavenaugh nomination. Yeah. That's why I want to spotlight this. There's like five other articles inside this Leonard Leo thing. I wanna keep spotlighting the federalist society and what they're doing. They're shady group. Their agenda is not pure. This isn't originalism is a smokescreen it's veneer for essentially like a business front done through this legal operation federalist society. This is so. Yeah. Just really quick five. Oh, one C four. This isn't a super Pac. They're under different rules, and they didn't directly get benefited by citizens United. But I do think that what you have seen some citizens United is generally just because super PACS this great support network that now exists because of that ruling I think five fours probably do even on their own become more powerful themselves because they have these additional apparatus that they can attach themselves to and I just want to highlight. How important this is sort of two developments that happened over the past decade, which is that the party core starts losing a lot of its power to party periphery. You know, these are things were the GOP is not in these conversations. These are conservative activists are wealthy individuals outside of the party that are basically deciding on party strategy messaging branding voting every Leo sees the weakness in the party and ruins he can capital. And that's the other thing is. When you combine that with the fact that you get a president who's basically just a blank check to conservatives. He doesn't have a thought in his pretty little head, which means you if you spend enough money can fill that head especially knowing that where does he get a lot of his ideas from he just watches TV. And here's people talking about stuff. So if you can get the public talking about it, if you can get FOX and friends talking about it, you can get an ad.

"It's called top Trump, backer, financed supreme court confirmation fights through shadowy network and discusses is Leonard Leo in the federal est society, the federal society that name sounds familiar. They are the people who have been giving Republican politicians, and particularly Donald Trump's administration a list of federal society approved supreme court nominees. And so Neil Gorsuch. Ambert Cavanaugh are both from the federal society federalist society approved and more importantly federal society supported and Leonard Leo is a name that I worry five years from now we'll turn into the cokes where we make him a boogeyman. But at this stage of the game, Leonard Leo is a name that I think needs to be known a lot better. So this article begins with the picture. That's emerging. Of Leonard Leo is that of a man who saw the Trump presidency as an opportunity to breach as an opportunity to branch out said Robert Maguire, the research director for citizens for responsibility and ethics in Washington over the last two years, we've seen him go from being a very behind the scenes actor known for being able to rally conservative donors for legal fights to someone who's taking a more central role. Most of the arms of the network are nonprofit groups meaning that the details of the finances in operations go unreported for nearly two years, which means we're two years behind Leonard. Leo right now, it's very clever. So when n reports to the Internal Revenue Service, do that's when we find out one such report recently obtained by the Daily Beast provides new details on arm of Leo's advocacy, network that was until recently, completely unknown. And that group is a five..

"Thanks stated for taking my call. Thank you. So I think this situation should be hard focused and consistently focused on how need a hill was treated. I feel that Dr forge the treated with courtesy, respect and consideration. And I believe that it is important for our history history of this country to at least know that the second time this came around the men in our legislature were able to rise to the occasion and act like fair and kind and decent Jomon that m. thanks. Thanks so much for that. That insight major Garrett. You write in your book a lot about the importance of the nomination Neal Gorsuch to the supreme court. I think there was a line in there where it said something like a Republicans were said something. Trump as though there said, well, he was going to sell out to someone. We're just glad he sold out to us. What did that mean? That's that's a general appraisal of conservatives who I spent a lot of time talking to who were not certain, what kind of Republican Donald Trump was during the primaries weren't certain once he won the nomination. And if you've got elected, which very few of them predicted, what kind of president he would be, they thought he was flexible to put it mildly and probably diplomatically and to their surprise, and in some cases to their delight and their quoted by name in the book. He quote unquote, from their perspective, sold out to them, became much more reliably conservative than they ever imagined he would be looking at his previous life and previous conversations except onto issues, trade and immigration. He's as much of a hardliner as president as he said he would be as a candidate that ruffles, some Republican feathers, not nearly as much as it did a year and a half ago. And that's part of the story about Donald Trump's, transformative effect on republicanism. And the Republican party and how it thinks of itself and talks about some of these issues. But that's the essence of it there. And in the book chapter on Neil Gorsuch I not only described Gorsuch, but I explained the list created by the federalist society Leonard Leo someone who is not a household name, but is as important to this entire Trump federal judiciary process as any person in America. How that started the very first conversation the two Leonard Leo and Donald Trump had with each other. I say where it was what they said to each other direct quotes. So if you haven't been able to read anywhere else. Yeah, no, is revealing. How important would you say though before we move on with the idea of capturing the court to conservatives they thought about Trump not just conservatives, but Republicans in general. You look at the exit polling data which probably understates Trump supporters because they tended to not participate an exit polls at the highest numbers or or equally high numbers as in the past because they're suspicious of the media and all that sort of stuff. But if you look at that data and you consider. Reliable, which I do. It was one of the most adhering meaning it was an adhesive for wobbly Republicans, uncertain or troubled about other things Donald Trump said, or did that question who's going to be in charge of the court, Hillary Clinton or Donald Trump and the list and the specificity of the list reinforced for them. He takes this seriously that's a determining factor from my vote and the exit poll data showed in higher percentages, and we've ever seen in a presidential election that was a determining factor. I have a hard time believing without that focus and emphasis on that issue. Donald Trump with all of his other problems within Republicans and Republican party would have been elected. That fascinating seems like it's playing out now with cavenaugh. That's whether this intensity is so great and that's why they prioritize it over almost every single thing else right now, the supreme court and the federal judiciary. In the book, you also write about the importance of Jeff Sessions. You know really complicated relationship there, but an early supporter of the president..
