Jessica Pieklo: ‘I’m now fully radicalized’ for court packing after Trump’s SCOTUS power grab

This week, Joshua Holland kicks off the show arguing that Trump's relentless attempts to delegitimize the election--and recent refusal to commit to a peaceful transfer of power if he loses--are not only part of a strategy to sow chaos and doubt but also an effort to demoralize Democratic voters and suppress their turnout. 
 
Then we're joined by Jessica Mason Pieklo, senior vice president and executive editor at the Rewire News Group, to talk about the death of Ruth Bader Ginsburg, the GOP's plan to ram through a Trump nominee to replace her and what the future might look like with a 6-3 court. We also discuss how this egregious abuse of power is shifting the conversation about the courts among Democrats.
