CNN legal analyst Jeffrey Toobin spoke with Harvard Law professor Alan Dershowitz at 92Y on November 16, 2012. In this clip, Toobin talks about whether the Supreme Court is political. Toobin says “you tell me who gets elected President and I’ll tell you how a Supreme Court’s going to decide a case…so yes, it’s very political.”

Toobin also points to how the Supreme Court illustrates a larger phenomena in American politics—the evolution of the Republican Party. To Toobin, “moderate Republicans do not exist anymore.”
