ITT Sound Off: Saving the Supreme Court

Maria and Julio discuss the uncovered text messages between Mark Meadows and Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas’ wife Ginni Thomas, revealing new efforts to overturn the 2020 presidential election results. They also get into the latest news out of the war in Ukraine, and President Biden’s meeting abroad with world leaders. And, they unpack Supreme Court nominee Ketanji Brown Jackson’s confirmation hearings.

ITT Staff Picks:

  • MSNBC’s Mehdi Hasan makes the case for the impeachment of Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas, on violating ethics and being subject to conflicts of interest, in this opinion piece.

  • For The Atlantic, Tom McTague unpacks the NATO alliance, asking what they ultimately stand for and against, as President Biden travels to Europe to discuss the war in Ukraine.

  • On Ketanji Brown Jackson’s confirmation hearings, Elie Mystal writes in The Nation: “It was emotionally affecting to watch Jackson, a ridiculously accomplished Black woman, be forced to dance to the tune of these mediocre white senators who were trying to reduce her to a caricature.”
