Leid Stories Stories and news that affect us all

October 10, 2018  

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. 

Kavanaugh's appointment, the senator said, shows that even once-revered institutions like the U.S. Supreme Court and the presidency are more than comfortable with corruption.

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