Smart conversation from the National Constitution Center

Podcast: Senators Flake and Coons

October 4, 2018 by NCC Staff

 

Senators Jeff Flake and Chris Coons join Jeffrey Rosen in a conversation recorded live earlier this week at The Atlantic Festival in Washington D.C. The senators discuss their important role in the Kavanaugh confirmation hearings, including their last-minute agreement to pause the nomination to allow for an FBI investigation of the allegations against Judge Brett Kavanaugh. They also share their hopes and fears for the future of the Senate and the Supreme Court, and how political tribalism today threatens the legitimacy of these American institutions.

The Constitution in Crisis program was presented in partnership with The Atlantic and generously sponsored by the John Templeton Foundation and the William and Flora Hewlett Foundation.
