Group led by “Brian Fallon, who reportedly indicated support for court packing after Justice Kavanaugh’s and Justice Gorsuch’s confirmations”
Brian Fallon was the press secretary for Hillary Clinton’s 2016 campaign. Now he is the executive director of a far left organization called “Demand Justice” which has repeatedly gone after Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh.
In the same way that leftist groups target the advertisers of conservative media personalities like Tucker Carlson, Demand Justice is going after people and groups who support Kavanaugh. The goal is to delegitimize Kavanaugh and Supreme Court Justice Neil Gorsuch.

Ex-Clinton aide’s org targeting law firms for helping group ‘rebuilding Kavanaugh’s image’
A former Clinton aide’s non-profit is attempting to shame Facebook and a slew of major law firms for supporting a conservative group’s event that it alleges was “rebuilding” Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh’s image.
The group, known as Demand Justice, is led by Hillary Clinton’s former press secretary, Brian Fallon, who reportedly indicated support for court packing after Justice Kavanaugh’s and Justice Gorsuch’s confirmations — both of which he claimed weren’t “legitimate.”
The ads will appear on Linkedin and Facebook, focusing on the top sponsors of the Federalist Society’s annual dinner where Kavanaugh spoke, the Associated Press reported on Thursday.
They feature photos of a snarling Kavanaugh, along with Christine Blasey Ford, the woman who accused him of sexually assaulting her when they were teenagers, a charge he denied.
“The Federalist Society is rebuilding Kavanaugh’s image” through events such as its annual dinner, the ad charges, so why are the law firms paying for it?
Kavanaugh got a standing ovation at the Federalist Society event, and that’s apparently a big problem for Fallon’s group:

The Demand Justice website claims that the United States Supreme Court has been hijacked:
The Supreme Court has been hijacked & democracy is at stake
There’s one area where Donald Trump and Republicans are quietly remaking America with almost no pushback. The federal courts are supposed to be the place that protects the rights of all Americans, but Trump is now filling them with judges who are loyal to him and his agenda.
Trump’s judges are overwhelmingly white men, unqualified for their posts, and consistently hold extreme, right-wing views. His nominees have a record of favoring big corporations over workers. They have fought to restrict women’s access to reproductive health services and deny equal treatment to LGBTQ Americans.
Trump’s judges also have a clear record of bigoted views when it comes to race. His nominees have defended voter suppression tactics, promoted the racist birther conspiracy against President Obama, and even defended the Ku Klux Klan.
One of their suggested remedies for this is packing the court:
If you agree that the Supreme Court is in need of major change, join us in calling for these reforms now.
1. Add justices to restore balance to the Supreme Court: Ensure that the next Democratic president can nominate justices to balance out Trump’s ideologically extreme picks.
2. Enact term limits to depoliticize confirmations: Standardize the time any justice can serve on the Court and take the politics out of when the next vacancy will occur.
3. Mandate accountability and transparency for the Supreme Court: Pass a code of ethics and other transparency measures for the Supreme Court.
They claim the Supreme Court has become too political. Do you think they would say that if a Democrat president was choosing new justices? Of course not.
If you thought the battle over Kavanaugh was ugly, just wait until Trump gets to nominate another justice.DONATE
