Citizens United v Federal Election Commission, was a landmark decision by the United States Supreme Court holding that corporate funding of independent political broadcasts in candidate elections cannot be limited under the First Amendment. The 5–4 decision resulted from a dispute over whether the non-profit corporation Citizens United could air via video on demand a critical film about Hillary Clinton, and whether the group could advertise the film in broadcast ads featuring Clinton’s image, in apparent violation of the McCain–Feingold Act. It was a major victory for the free speech rights guaranteed by the first Amendment.

Arguing for the Law to remain as is was Solicitor General, and now nominee to the Supreme Court Elena Kagen. In the video below, we hear Kagen being questioned by the court, asking if the bill could lead to banning other media, like Books, here answer was that yes but that’s OK but we would never really enforce it.  Justice Scalia puts her in her place, basically saying, never believe a lawyer who says “trust me.”

We know very little about this woman who wants to be Supreme Court Justice, and what we know, doesn’t sound very good.
