How to follow the money with a relationship map

Click on any person or organization to see details on them in the side panel. You can zoom in or out, just like a regular map. Use the FOCUS icon on the right to dig into details and connections for a person.

Use the tabs at the top to only see the details for someone. Choose from Cannon, Thomas, Gorsuch, Kavanaugh, Alito, Roberts, Leo and billionaires. (Apologies: I wasn't able to find the picture of the person who paid of Brett Kavanaugh's credit card bills so I had to use an icon). This is what the map looks like when you click on the "Cannon" tab:

Cannon Pushes Back Critical Filing Deadline in Trump Documents Case

"Reversing one of her own decisions, Cannon, the federal judge overseeing Trump’s classified documents case granted his request on Monday to postpone the deadline for a crucial court filing in the criminal proceeding, increasing the chance that any trial would be pushed past the November election.

Mr. Trump has relentlessly pursued a strategy of delaying all four of the criminal cases he is facing, and if he succeeds in delaying his trial on charges of mishandling classified documents until after the election, he could order his Justice Department to drop the matter altogether if he wins." - NY Times

Aileen Cannon, the judge assigned to oversee Trump's criminal case was appointed by Trump himself. - NPR

Trump appointed Aileen Cannon after losing the electio.

Republicans stack the courts and pander the justices to get the rulings they want

"Mitch McConnell and Leonard Leo made no secret of their ambition to appoint as many conservatives as they could to the federal courts, including the Supreme Court. Judges like Cannon sneak off to remote luxury lodges in Montana to listen to right-wing legal scholars spouting off on subjects that sound like topics at a CPAC convention, about  “woke” laws and the “regulatory state,” and they do that for a reason: so we won’t know who’s paying for their time and their attention and their fun... Gee, is it possible that Leonard Leo and his pals think they might be getting a return on their investment?" - Lucian Truscott IV in Salon
