On this week’s bonus episode of Lever Time Premium, exclusively for The Lever’s supporting subscribers, we’re sharing our recent live chat with Yale law professor Samuel Moyn where we examined the troubling legacy of Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts.
The last several years has seen the Supreme Court’s conservative majority exert its power over the American public through controversial case rulings, often out of step with public sentiment. More recently, the court has been embroiled in a series of corruption scandals, all of which has led to a crisis of faith as more and more Americans view the court as a biased political institution.
During this discussion, Moyn joins The Lever’s David Sirota and Andrew Perez to take a look at Roberts' role in this disconcerting history, his flip-flopping on the court’s independence, and his resistance to congressional oversight.
