This was great! Very informative, thought provoking...I totally agree with the need for diversity of school on the courts but there's a need for diversity of religion. I'm born and raised Catholic and even I think there are too many Catholics on the court. ijs

I love your new podcast. have a question hope you can answer. Can the Senate vote for disbarment from running for president again with out having to convict/impeach Trump? I dread his return. must be some way to get him barred, surely.
