This episode is exactly why this show exists. Two stories about Merrick Garland’s DoJ came out recently that gave the strong impression that Garland was defending Trump policies and even joining forces with religious bigots against LGBTQ rights. These stories are COMPLETELY misleading. As always with complicated legal stories, the truth faces a steep, uphill battle. Come along as Andrew explains why Garland is doing exactly what he should be, and would be doing even under a Bernie Sanders administration.
In the first segment, we discuss the Women’s Health Protection Act. Can it save us from the Supreme Court overturning Roe? Find out!
