Ep. 31: Randy Barnett on Justice Kennedy’s Replacement
One of the most widely-made conservative arguments in favor of voting for Donald Trump in 2016 was his ability to nominate constitutionalist justices to the Supreme Court. This year, President Trump will get his chance to name the replacement for Associate Justice Anthony Kennedy, who is retiring. From a conservative point of view, it's an opportunity to replace the Court's swing vote with a more conservative one.
To talk about this important development, we're joined by one of America's foremost constitutional scholars, Randy Barnett. Barnett is the Carmack Waterhouse Professor of Legal Theory at the Georgetown University Law Center, and Director of the Georgetown Center for the Constitution.
