Two Sundays ago, Bill Svelmoe, American history professor at Saint Mary’s College in Notre Dame, Indiana, wrote an essay about how the Democrats should question Judge Amy Coney Barrett. It went viral within hours – on Facebook alone it has been shared more than 50,000 times. He suggested rather than focus on likely future cases such as abortion and health care, where nominees can easily deflect with “not wanting to weigh in on hypotheticals” he suggested instead that they hop into the way back machine and ask about the Emoluments Clause, the Hatch Act, Russia and the President’s taxes – a greatest hits of the past four years, turning the confirmation hearings into political theater three weeks before the election. Like much of history, it is an accidental moment, but a fascinating set of questions well worth the read and a great listen.

Enjoy the listen
