Leid Stories–U.S. Senator: ‘Kavanaugh Appointment Proves Unprecedented Levels of Corruption at Highest Levels of Our Government’–10.10.18

We listened yesterday to Rhode Island Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse’s testimony before his colleagues about Brett Kavanaugh’s rammed-through appointment to the U.S. Supreme Court and the conjoined efforts of the wealthy and the politically corrupt in creating and maintaining a system of governance that makes a mockery of the high ideals the nation extols.

Leid Stories continues our discussion of Sen. Whitehouse’s speech.
