Playing politics with SCOTUS

The recent passing of US Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg sent shockwaves throughout the American electorate. Democrats fear that President Trump will appoint someone significantly more conservative to replace the famously liberal “RBG,” which would cause the SCOTUS to lurch to the right. Republicans, in turn, would welcome such a shift as a long awaited “correction.” As Democrats seek to delay the appointment of a new justice until after the presidential election, Republicans insist that filling RBG’s vacated seat is President Trump’s prerogative. What does the future hold for the Supreme Court of the United States and the country whose laws it is entrusted to interpret?

RT America’s Natasha Sweatte reports on the ongoing US presidential election and the impact of Justice Ginsburg’s departure on the struggle for the White House. Then Scottie Nell Hughes welcomes criminal defense attorney Jan Ronis and federal attorney Vikas Bajaj share their expertise. Then former Georgia state Rep. LaDawn Jones and Terry Schilling, executive director of the American Principles Project, join the discussion.
