Frontline: Supreme Revenge: Battle for the Supreme Court

With the confirmation of Justice Amy Coney Barrett days before the 2020 presidential election, conservatives solidified a 6-3 majority on the Supreme Court — and the chance to shape American life and policy for a generation.

Behind it all was a powerful Republican from Kentucky: Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, for whom Barrett’s confirmation was a crowning achievement in a hard-fought, decades-long effort to transform the nation’s highest court.

“Supreme Revenge: Battle for the Court” tells the inside story of that effort, and how it was sparked in part by a 30-year-old grievance. With McConnell elected to another six year term and President-elect Joe Biden preparing to take office in January, the film offers both a gripping political narrative and critical context on the state of America’s judiciary at the dawning of the Biden administration.
