BRETT KAVANAUGH HAS been confirmed today as Supreme Court justice of the United States in a 50-48 vote in the Senate, despite three different allegations of sexual assault and misconduct, opposition and criticism from American Bar Association, and a letter penned by his "drinking buddies" saying he is unfit for the position. He also seems to have perjured himself in front of the Senate Judiciary Committee just nine days ago, lying under oath about everything, from his drinking to the sexual references in his yearbook, and exposing himself to be an angry and partisan Republican hack. The message of today's vote is clear: If you're a rich, white, conservative man in America, you do not have to face the consequences of your actions and you will not be held accountable for your lies or your behavior. Mehdi Hasan is joined by The Intercept's Senior Politics Editor Briahna Gray and D.C. Bureau Chief Ryan Grim, the feminist author and activist Naomi Wolf, and senior adviser to the Women's March Winnie Wong in this special episode to discuss what Kavanaugh's confirmation means for women in America and what the Democrats can do to stop a Supreme Court dominated by the hard right from rolling back everything progressives have fought for.
