On “The Tent” this week, Daniella and Jesse connect with Slate legal writer Mark Joseph Stern for a conversation on the underdiscussed but still very important federal judiciary, focusing in the influence of the new 6-3 conservative majority on the Supreme Court. They also dig into the Biden administration’s judicial strategy. Plus, Daniella reflects on the collapse of bipartisan infrastructure talks between the White House and Senate Republicans and where the legislation goes from here.
