It’s official — President Trump has selected Judge Neil Gorsuch as his Supreme Court nominee.
During his 2006 confirmation hearing, in which his selection was unanimous (garnering votes from Obama, Clinton, Schumer, and other big name Democrats), he uttered a quote that revealed his true grasp for “law and order.”
“The independence of the judiciary depends upon people in both parties being willing to serve, good people being willing to serve who are capable and willing to put aside their personal politics and preferences to decide cases and to follow the law and not try and make it.”
In fact, it mimics the basis of what the late Antonin Scalia preached nearly his entire life:
“As long as judges tinker with the Constitution to ‘do what the people want,’ instead of what the document actually commands, politicians who pick and confirm new federal judges will naturally want only those who agree with them politically.”
It’s all about following the Constitution — as Scalia said, it’s not a “living, breathing document,” it’s “dead, dead, dead.”
