Examining the Supreme Court: Clinton Court vs.Trump Court

Listen 00:48:45

Guest: Lincoln Caplan

During the last presidential debate, candidates Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump took on questions about the Supreme Court, how the constitution should be interpreted, gun laws and abortion laws. In this hour, Marty will talk with LINCOLN CAPLAN about the state of a 4-4 Supreme Court in transition, the politicization of the nomination of justices, and what a Clinton court or a Trump court could mean for the country. Caplan’s new book is “American Justice 2016,” and he will be at the National Constitution Center today at noon.
