Summary
The highly politicized confirmation battles over judicial nominations, especially the ugly and unprincipled lights over seats on the Supreme Court. The passage of the Trump tax cut, which widened economic inequality across the country. The pervasive corruption unleashed by 'dark money' in politics. Bennet pulls the machinations behind these episodes into full public view. He reveals the pathological culture of the capital-- and the consequences for us all.
