On October 6, 2018 Brett Michael Kavanaugh was sworn in as the 114th Justice of the Supreme Court. Allegations of sexual misconduct from years past, days of dramatic Senate Judiciary Committee public hearings, a combative Senate split by party, an FBI investigation into Kavanaugh, and finally a controversial vote, led to a new justice on the high court.

So what kind of impact will Justice Kavanaugh have on the Supreme Court? And will the controversy swirling around him follow him to the high court putting his decisions in the spotlight? On Lawyer 2 Lawyer, host Craig Williams joins Carrie Severino, chief counsel and policy director of the Judicial Crisis Network, and Steven D. Schwinn, professor of law at the John Marshall Law School in Chicago, to talk about the controversy over Kavanaugh’s appointment, the FBI Investigation, the confirmation hearing, the judicial misconduct complaints, and his future impact on the Supreme Court.

Carrie Severino is chief counsel and policy director of the Judicial Crisis Network. In that capacity, Carrie has testified before Congress on assorted constitutional issues and briefed senators on judicial nominations.

Steven D. Schwinn is professor of law at the John Marshall Law School in Chicago. He co-edits the Constitutional Law Prof Blog and is a frequent media commentator on the Constitution, the courts, and politics.
