But the following year, when Trump drew from the same list of candidates for his nomination of Brett Kavanaugh, the justice being replaced was the swing vote on abortion, and all hell broke loose.,The judicial confirmation process, on the point of breakdown for thirty years, now proved utterly dysfunctional. Unverified accusations of sexual assault became weapons in a ruthless campaign of personal destruction, culminating in the melodramatic hearings in which Kavanaugh???s impassioned defense resuscitated a nomination that seemed beyond saving.,The Supreme Court has become the arbiter of our nation???s most vexing and divisive disputes.

But it can happen, it does happen, and it just happened. The question is whether America will let it happen again.
