Ruth Marcus - Supreme Ambition: Brett Kavanaugh and the Conservative Takeover

Upcoming Event
Tuesday, December 3, 2019 - 7:00pm

A legal expert and deputy editorial page editor for The Washington Post, Marcus in her new book investigates the many questions left unanswered following the 2018 confirmation hearings of Brett Kavanaugh. Tracing his nomination to conservatives’ thirty-year effort to secure a majority on the High Court, Marcus documents a series of secret White House meetings, intense lobbying efforts, private confrontations on Capitol Hill, and maneuvers by the nominee himself that led to Kavanaugh’s selection—despite resistance from Republicans who worried about the depth of his commitment to conservative issues. She also examines the credibility of Blasey Ford’s testimony, considers the impact of this divisive confirmation on the future of the court, and gives a deeply reported look at Washington’s inner workings.
