The Scheme 23: Let's Say [View all]

'Senator Sheldon Whitehouse (D-RI) took to the Senate Floor to deliver the twenty-third in a series of speeches entitled “The Scheme,” exposing the machinations by right-wing donor interests to capture the Supreme Court and achieve through the Court what they cannot through the elected branches of government.

Whitehouse recounts what we know about the capture of the Supreme Court to date and rebuts the arguments offered by attorneys for court fixer Leonard Leo and billionaire Harlan Crow.'

OMG, people, grab a cup of coffee or something stronger, gird your loins, and prepare to listen to a master class on the scheme to destroy American democracy (my words).
