Who Is John Roberts?

Who Is John Roberts?

Who Is the most powerful person in America? Perhaps Chief Justice of the Supreme Court John Roberts. Appointed for life, Justice Roberts could cast the decisive vote—defining the law of the land—when it comes to issues like abortion, gun control, LGBTQ rights, and things you don’t even realize touch your everyday life. Presidents and Senate power breakers might get the press, but for the power behind the throne, look for the man in the black robe. GUESTS: Amy Howe, of Howe on the Court and host of podcast SCOTUSTalk. Co-founder of SCOTUSblog Dahlia Lithwick, of Slate, she hosts the Amicus podcast. Mark Joseph Stern, of Slate, and author of “American Justice 2019: The Roberts Court Arrives” Learn more about your ad-choices at https://news.iheart.com/podcast-advertisers
