On this week's episode of Versus Trump, Jason, Charlie, and Easha discuss the retirement of Justice Kennedy and how his presumptive replacement may rule in Versus Trump cases. They then do some quick hits to update a handful of important cases. As usual, you can listen online below, and subscribe via this page with any podcast player or here in iTunes.
Charlie starts the discussion by mentioning an unconfirmed report that Justice Kennedy had been in contact with the Trump Administration before his retirement and perhaps had even been assured that Judge Kavanaugh would be nominated to replace him. Jason then breaks down Judge Kavanaugh's record in key Versus Trump areas, like executive power and administrative law, and concludes that Judge Kavanaugh is unlikely to be very sympathetic to many of the arguments plaintiffs are making in cases against the Administration. The trio then update several immigration cases, the case challenging the citizenship question on the census, and the case brought by DNC staffers against the Trump campaign.
