The bitter partisan battle that played out during Brett Kavanaugh’s Supreme Court confirmation hearings seemed unique to America’s current political and social moment.

But as a new FRONTLINE investigation reveals, the intense politicization on display during the Supreme Court confirmation process — and conservatives’ grip on the court itself — reflect a shift many years in the making.

In “Supreme Revenge,” FRONTLINE investigates the decades of consequential political brinkmanship that shaped the court’s current makeup, and how one major player — Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) — has prevailed.

“The Supreme Revenge” is available to stream now on PBS.
