Brett Kavanaugh

My Latest Guest Appearance on First Mondays: "A Bunch of Printers"

I discuss the Kavanaugh nomination, originalism, and much more with Professors Dan Epps and Ian Samuel.


I'm pleased to have appeared again as a guest host on one of my favorite podcasts, First Mondays. In this episode, I put forth my proposal for improving judicial confirmation hearings and announced my views about Judge Kavanaugh: "He's an incredibly conscientious person, who I think has the right way of thinking of about the law, and it would be a travesty if he were not confirmed."

I got so little pushback on that point that we then spent a lot of time talking about originalism, judicial supremacy, and lots more.
