Remember – there was an empty Supreme Court seat and President Obama’s candidate, Merrick Garland was NOT EVEN INTERVIEWED by the Senate – no confirmation hearing at all. Who got that seat? how did that happen – keep these things in mind as you read. As justices retire, the President of the United States will nominate replacements who support his viewpoints thus shaping the courts and laws for decades. Think about the process!!
What happened during the confirmation of the latest Justice Brett Kavanaugh? How might his confirmation change the court and decisions?
How was the confirmation of Justice Amy Coney Barrett handled?
