HANNITY BOOK CLUB: Saving Nine: The Fight Against the Left's Audacious Plan to Pack the Supreme Court and Destroy American Liberty

posted by Hannity Staff - 5.05.22

Senator Mike Lee of Utah has a new book out that could not be more aptly timed, Saving Nine: The Fight Against the Left’s Audacious Plan to Pack the Supreme Court and Destroy American Liberty. Before entering politics, Lee served as an assistant U.S. attorney and specialized in Supreme Court litigation in private practice. After graduating from law school, he clerked for several federal judges, including future Supreme Court Justice Judge Samuel Alito.

In Saving Nine: The Fight Against the Left’s Audacious Plan to Pack the Supreme Court and Destroy American Liberty (Center Street, June 7th), Lee warns of the dangerous, norm-shattering precedent that would be set by politically motivated attempts to turn the Supreme Court into just another partisan weapon, in which “landmark” cases are decided and overturned every few years depending on election cycles. Americans’ sacred rights, from free speech to gun ownership, would come under threat from a Left-wing activist Court. The stability that the rule of law provides under our Constitutional system would be shaken to its core.

Readers will learn:

  • How and why the Supreme Court settled on its longtime composition of nine justices;

  • How the first “Progressives” under President Woodrow Wilson threatened the legitimacy of a Supreme Court they didn’t agree with;

  • Why President Franklin Roosevelt nearly succeeded in packing the court in 1937 in a bid to force through the most radical parts of his New Deal agenda;

  • Which prominent Democrat called court-packing “a bad idea,” and which Democratic President said it was “boneheaded”;

  • What a “post-Constitutional republic” with a delegitimized, politicized Supreme Court could look like, and the consequences for Americans of all political stripes

“As our country faces a crucial test, a challenge to the constitutional order not seen in more than a generation, Americans must ask themselves: Are we ready to start down the road to a post-constitutional republic? Is cramming in more justices to push through today’s left-wing priorities really worth it–even to Democrats–if we fully consider the consequences?” writes Lee. “Our institutions and our Constitution are facing an existential threat, but it’s not too late to stop it. It’s not too late to save nine.”
