After two years, the harm President Trump is doing to our justice system is clear. He has repeatedly demonstrated his contempt for the rule of law. He has attacked judges who have ruled against him. He has stated that he expects loyalty from those in law enforcement. He has demanded investigations into the media and political opponents. He has repeatedly tried to undermine independent investigations. He has mocked constitutional rights. He has abused his pardon authority. He has repeatedly acted in ways struck down by courts.

This fact sheet focuses on just one assault on our constitutional values: the judicial nominees that have emanated from organizations secretly funded by billionaires and big business who have been nominated by the White House and expedited through the Senate, which has repeatedly eviscerated norms and rules to do so.
