Opeds Fortas Precedent on Kavanaugh, Booker's Missed WH Prison Reform Op, Prosecute Flint Decidrs by Fmr WH Spsmn

Former WH spokesman Robert Weiner and his team have just published three op-eds, in the Memphis Commercial Appeal, the New Jersey Star Leger, and Labor Press.

WASHINGTON, DC, UNITED STATES, November 20, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ -- Former White House spokesman Robert Weiner and his team have just published three op-eds, in the Memphis Commercial Appeal, the New Jersey Star Leger, and Labor Press. The first, ranked H1 by OpEdNews as the top op-ed in the country, was originally published in the Memphis Commercial Appeal by Weiner and Emilie Solberg on how the precedent set by Rob Fortas, who resigned as Supreme Court Justice in 1969 could repeat itself with Brett Kavanaugh's process now scrutinized by the new House Judiciary Committee. The second, by Weiner and Jared Schwartz, in the NJ Star Ledger and ranked H3 in OpEdNews, is on why Corey Booker should show bipartisanship on criminal justice reform and not skip White House meetings, as he did this week, if he wants to establish a record for a presidential campaign. The third, in Labor Press, ranked H2 as nation's #2 op-ed, calls for prosecution of public officials causing abusive decisions including Flint water and child immigrant cages. He also appeared on Sky News twice in the week leading up to the midterms and once on midterm night. He also appeared on the Dave Elliott Show (SW FL #1 news-talk radio show) the morning after the midterms. Weiner also asked a question on C-Span on economic equity to “Ben & Jerry” at a news conference at the National Press Club that viewers said this week as relevant today, so included. Weiner also makes weekly appearances on the Alan Nathan Show on the Main Street Radio Network. Op-eds and TV/Radio follow:

Op-eds

***November 18, 2018: “Abe Fortas Precedent May Hold for House Investigation of Kavanaugh Proceedings in New Congress” in the Memphis Commercial Appeal by Robert Weiner and Emilie Solberg, H1 OpEdNews

Weiner and Solberg begin, “In 1969, under pressure of ongoing investigations, Abe Fortas, born and raised in Memphis, a graduate of South Side High School and Rhodes College in Memphis, became the first Supreme Court Justice to resign.”
They continue, “He did so not only to avoid impeachment proceedings, but to escape with some dignity, reputation and integrity.”

***November 19, 2018: Booker's Missed White House Opportunity to Show Bipartisan Progress on Prison Reform in the New Jersey Star Ledger and NJ.com, H3 OpEdNews by Robert Weiner and Jared Schwartz

Weiner and Schwartz begin, “Finally, after years of wrangling over reasonable criminal justice reform, Congress is about to pass serious legislation on prison and justice reform.”

They go on, “Yet Senate Democrats including 2020 Presidential contender Cory Booker did not go to the White House when Trump held a White House event Nov. 14 to announce support.”

They argue, “Without Democrats, Trump managed to make the First Step Act into a bipartisan personal accomplishment. No one was there to say how much farther there is to go.”
