David Waldman was late and owes us 6 minutes today. Put it on his tab:
Speaking of late, Democrats hurl themselves into battle during Brett Kavanaugh’s nomination hearing, after receiving the last minute dump of a percent or two of the necessary documentation. David talks Gang of 14, Nuclear Option, judicial filibusters, Patrick Leahy’s felicitous anamnesis, and related legends, myths and history.
Speaking of judicial impeachment, the West Virginia House impeached the entire state Supreme Court. David explores the why and how.
Kris Kobach wants to be the next Trump, but is too stupid to reach even that level, as he probably intentionally failed to register voters during his hunt for voter fraud.
You knew Bruce Ohr had to be pretty cool, based on the enemies he cultivated. David looks into the efforts to flip Oleg Deripaska on Russian organized crime, and Donald Trump, natch.
Screwing Russian oligarchs became an issue for Maria Butina the moment she forgot the difference between a euphemism and a metaphor.
