Leid Stories--U.S. Senator: 'Kavanaugh Appointment Proves Unprecedented Levels of Corruption at Highest Levels of Our Government'--10.10.18
We listened yesterday to Rhode Island Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse's testimony before his colleagues about Brett Kavanaugh's rammed-through appointment to the U.S. Supreme Court and the conjoined efforts of the wealthy and the politically corrupt in creating and maintaining a system of governance that makes a mockery of the high ideals the nation extols.
Kavanaugh's appointment, the senator said, shows that even once-revered institutions like the U.S. Supreme Court and the presidency are more than comfortable with corruption.
