Justice on Trial: The Kavanaugh Confirmation and the Future of the Supreme Court Free Audiobook Download by Mollie Hemingway,Carrie Severino
Justice on Trial: The Kavanaugh Confirmation and the Future of the Supreme Court is a book about how the #MeToo movement is going to affect the Supreme Court. These are difficult subjects to discuss, but Carrie Severino and Mollie Hemingway (both from 'The Federalist') believe it's important for people to listen and learn so that they can prevent themselves from making the same mistakes in their lives and careers.
Brett Kavanaugh was confirmed to the Supreme Court by a narrow 50-48 vote on Saturday. The American public has watched as his nomination moved from hopeful to haphazard to victory, but there is still much to be learned from this process. On one side of the discussion are those who believe that the confirmation process should be free and fair for all nominees, regardless of gender. These people point out that men have been nominated and confirmed with far less scrutiny than women's nominees in the past. On the other side are those who think it is appropriate to place high scrutiny on a nominee who has represented himself in sexual misconduct allegations on top of being accused of sexual assault by another woman. In Justice on Trial: The Kavanaugh Confirmation and the Future of the Supreme Court, Carrie Severino offers her own personal analysis of what happened in this confirmation process, explaining how she believes that it sets a dangerous precedent for future scrutiny by Americans.
Justice on Trial is an audiobook that highlights how the confirmation of Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court has brought into question the status quo of how justice is delivered. The audiobook discusses how recent changes in technology and social media have given a new voice to those who would like to see less empathy in court rulings and more conviction. Audible.com also wrote about this audiobook, highlighting that "Justice on Trial is a riveting tale of the fight for due process and one man's journey from seeking high office"
Mollie Hemingway and Carrie Severino team up to offer a narrative on the Kavanaugh confirmation process. They argue that it was unfair for the Senate Democrats to go after Judge Brett Kavanaugh's personal life, but they are in turn setting a bad example of how they should not be handling the confirmation of future nominees. The two women also discuss whether anyone would be willing to vote for an accused sexual abuser or if there will be any other such cases in the future.
