Conservatives have a once-in-a-lifetime chance to reshape the Supreme Court, President Trump should nominate RBG's replacement and Republicans should confirm the nominee ASAP. It's a no brainer, right? Not so fast, says returning guest Colin Greene.

Colin makes a strong case against nominating a new Justice before the election, arguing that the risk of further delegitimization of the Court and the political blowback far outweigh the reward of another conservative justice on the bench.

Matt disagrees arguing that conservatives cannot miss this chance and that Colin overestimates the potential blowback from such a divisive move.

Nick leans heavily towards Colin's position, but can Matt win him over to his side? Listen to episode 48 to find out!
