Leo is best known for leading @FedSoc, the group at the center of his efforts at control. There are 3 incarnations of @FedSoc: 1st is the debating society for conservatives at law schools. 2nd is the flashy think tank. But the 3rd is much darker, both in funding & function. pic.twitter.com/ppWVZu9Ppc
 
If you're worried about the damaging effects of anonymous "dark money" on our democracy, you need to know what Leonard Leo is doing and how he's getting away with it.

Left unchecked, this problem will continue to get worse. Shine a light. Educate yourself. Read this. It's good.

Ppl who think the court fight is all about abortion don’t understand that the goal is really a reinterpretation of federal govt power to prevent any and all economic and corporate regulation. They want us at the mercy of the rich.

Are they the ones who paid Kavanaugh’s bills off before he got SCOTUS. Gambling debt, credit card debt, mortgage, over 1.2 million in debt relief is that all a SCOTUS costs today?
 
.@SenWhitehouse is one of the strongest Senate leaders against Trump's court-packing efforts and the damage it does to our democracy. Leonard Leo of the Federalist Society is at the forefront of radical changes to our judiciary in favor of special interests and corporations.
 
Well Hello Federalists
 
If you’re still wondering who paid off Kavanaugh ‘s debt? Look no further. 👇🏽
 
Ignoring this is not ok @TheRickWilson @Mimirocah1 @RadioFreeTom @BillKristol @robreiner -- You know this is what George Conway is all about.
 
In reply to @SenWhitehouse
Nobody elected Leo. His picks should be removed from the Bench.
 
In reply to @SenWhitehouse
We need to get all CORRUPTION out of every level of our govt. Make penalties for corruption much stiffer. Crooks have it too easy right now.
 
This is SO crucial. Please read WaPo & share with others.

Check the bots on this thread. Wapo and Whitehouse struck a major nerve. Good. Let it rain.
 
In reply to @SenWhitehouse
This one of those deep dive investigations that exposes the some of the Wizards behind the curtain. The Roman Catholic Federalist society is responsible for stacking the courts in pro corporate, pro guns, anti democracy religious freedom, women and gay rights. Five on SC

They want to party like it’s 1899.

is a member and @lisamurkowski is complicit in following @FedSoc every whim. They are like the mafia. They are destroying our democracy. #akgov

When Dems get into office in 2021, they must name two additional SCOTUS Justices to the Court. It's had 9 for way too long.
 
In reply to @SenWhitehouse
Sunlight is the best disinfectant! Expose them! This—among 20 other HUGE stories — should get major press, continuously!
 
I've been trying to tell people about this man and organization for years! Leonard Leo is packing our courts as we speak. This man goes to FULL MASS every single day. He wants GOD in Government.
 
In reply to @SenWhitehouse
Leonard Leo is deeply, deeply evil.

Bring LeonardLeo in for questioning in an open hearing. Its time to expose him for the little troll that he is. 😏 pic.twitter.com/TztuANPaoo
 
 
 
 
 
In reply to @SenWhitehouse
Did Leonard Leo pay off Kavanaugh’s debt?
 
Nice of the media to wait until Leo's work is fully accomplished.
 
In reply to @SenWhitehouse
It’s ridiculous that the #maga crowd call Democrats “elites”. Republicans are buying judges & politicians. Only one party wants to get money out of politics -the Democrats.
 
In reply to @SenWhitehouse
Exactly, Leonard Leo is the one who picks crazy catholic cultists for SCOTUS. He, the Kochs, the Mercers, and other similar types threaten to pull their $$$ if #GOP doesn't support trump's moves toward a plutocracy. #GOPComplicitTraitors #GOPCorruption
 
 
 
 
In reply to @SenWhitehouse
Yep and unfortunately the Democrats wont do anything about this either... they've handed our country over to the #CorruptGOP and we've been watching our democracy circle the drain ever since - if they don't start #ImpeachmentInquiryNow then we might as well give em the throne

Leonard Leo 🚨 NEW Washington Post Published Report on
Leo's efforts to manipulate our Third Branch of Government, the Federal Judiciary on behalf of the dark money billionaires who believe they should be in control of our Courts #CapturedCourts 5/21/2019 pic.twitter.com/rdneSnGcgc
 
In reply to @SenWhitehouse
Sir, There must be a way to legally de-legitimize Trump/GOP thru election tampering etc. Then there may be a way to nullify appointments ??
 
 
In reply to @anxioudacity
The entire GOP is corrupt. This is WAY bigger than 45 & started WAY before he became POTUS. One of the reasons the members of the GOP are so insistent in defending him is cuz it keeps their shit buried too. Impeaching 45 is not going to fix the problem.
 
In reply to @SenWhitehouse
Absolute Power......while we watch.
 
 
The. entire. GOP. is. corrupt. This is WAY bigger than 45 and started WAY before him.
 
And, who's behind the effort to increase the number of judges on the SCOTUS, eliminate the electoral college &implement a presidential popular voter, while wiping their ass with the constitution?Also by coincidence on behalf of a bunch ultrawealthy elites?
Look in your mirror.
 
How can a piece of shit like Leonard Leo influence our judicial system? And he calls himself a “devout Catholic” when he’s a fucking conman.
 
In reply to @SenWhitehouse
This depressing article makes me realize it’s game over. The conservatives ( through the GOP) will control America for generations. There is no turning back.
 
In reply to @SenWhitehouse
This is the someone who has no qualms about what his actions will wrought for thousands of women’s lives.
 
In reply to @SenWhitehouse
Leonard Leo did a good job on judiciary for conservative but it was Trump who made his achievement spectacular. Trump and McConnell did everything for a solid conservative court for decades to come.

There is NOTHING about Trump that is "CONSERVATIVE" pic.twitter.com/Y9hyHgoIkf

#LeonardLeo wasting all this money to overturn #RoevWade for the last 20years doesn’t make any sense at all. Leo is the trump’s Judicial “advisor”.Leo is advisor to the guy who puts #ChildrenInCages #SeparatesFamilies is #Racist but,hey,Leo is anti abortion! #ProLife my a$$!
 
 
This is not news, Sen Whitehouse. I live in fly-over country and I've known about the right-wing plan to control the courts for years.
 
Don't the Republicans bash the elites?
 
Including the folks that paid to get Trump elected Robert Mercerand his daughter Rebekah.
 
 
In reply to @SenWhitehouse
He doesn’t realize that Trump will make him lose all!
 
 
 
We’re choking on systemic corruption that is destroying our democracy and the GOP are profiting from it.

What they don’t get is that as things get tougher on the mass one day they will revolt. Eventually we the people will ban together and retake our country
 
In reply to @brianefallon
@brianefallon @cdkang76 @IndivisibleEB This investigation is jaw dropping and Leo is extremely dangerous
 
 
Way past time to expose these undemocratic, religious fascists taking over the judiciary.

I hope soon you or someone like you gets to be speaker of the senate or better, the house . You have the brains, And a spine.
 
In reply to @SenWhitehouse
and just what, is wrong with judges being constitutional conservatives? the constitution is a conservative, set of laws and rights. it, was meant to keep democrats from doing or trying to do what they are now.
 
 
In reply to @SenWhitehouse
I want these disgusting incompetent losers snatched off the bench.
 
In reply to @SenWhitehouse
And your won't do shit about it 🤦🏻‍♂️
 
In reply to @SenWhitehouse
And the other dangerous aspect of Leonard Leo is his activist activities (using big dark money $$) throughout the country to pull young lawyers into this Fed Soc fold to help produce right wing conservative products!
 
In reply to @SenWhitehouse
 
Judicial lifetime appointments...👇👇👇
 
Read this and know that Leonard Leo is one of evil driven rich that intend to control our country. #CapturedCourts
 
 
 
 
This guy has his eyes on the target. My favorite Senator.
 
This is a big deal to America and the long path taken by conservatives like the Koch brothers to eliminate government.
 
Interesante y aterrador! Habrán similitudes con Chile? 🤔
 
 
This 👇is critical. A must read. Call to action.
