Judge Neil Gorsuch Owns Day 2 of Senate Hearings

Judge Neil Gorsuch is proving his mettle during day 2 of his Senate confirmation hearings, though he probably wishes that everything was going just a bit easier.

Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC) (who we usually don’t praise) had the best day of the Senators in the hearing, systematically dismantling the Democrats objections, exposing their hypocrisy, and letting Judge Gorsuch’s qualifications speak for themselves.

Graham also had one of the most important exchanges with Judge Gorsuch on the topic of Roe v. Wade.

SENATOR LINDSEY GRAHAM (R-SC): Had you ever met President Trump personally?

JUDGE NEIL GORSUCH, NOMINEE FOR SUPREME COURT JUSTICE: Not until my interview.

SEN. GRAHAM: In that interview did he ever ask you to overrule Roe v. Wade?

GORSUCH: No, Senator.

SEN. GRAHAM: What would you have done if he had asked?

GORSUCH: Senator, I would have walked out the door. It’s not what judges do. They don’t do it at that end of Pennsylvania Ave. and they shouldn’t do it at this end either, respectfully.

Judge Gorsuch explains that one’s personal views on certain issues don’t make them a good/bad judge.
