Judge Neil Gorsuch Hits Back Against False Attacks from a Democratic Senator

President Trump’s Supreme Court Nominee Judge Neil Gorsuch destroyed Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) for launching a false attack against Gorsuch’s worker rights record during the second day of hearing regarding his nomination.

Sen. Feinstein told Judge Gorsuch that she was looking for something that would indicate that Gorsuch would give a worker a fair shot if they were to appear in front of the Supreme Court.

“What I think can give you comfort in this area, Senator, I know a case, or two has been mentioned yesterday, respectfully, I suggest it does not represent the body of my work,” Gorsuch told Feinstein.

“I’ve participated in 2,700 opinions over 10 and a half years. And if you want cases where I’ve ruled for the little guy as well as the big guy, there are plenty of them, Senator.”

“Would you be willing to submit some of them,” Feinstein asked Gorsuch.

“I’ll name a bunch of them right now,” Gorsuch responded.

Gorsuch then rattled off several cases where he ruled for the “little guy.”

“That’s helpful. We’ll find them and read them,” Feinstein told Gorsuch.

“Senator, the bottom line I think is that I would like to convey to you, from the bottom of my heart, is that I’m a fair judge.” Gorsuch then rattled off a bipartisan list of people who had previously spoken to this point.

“Senator, I can’t guarantee you more than that, but I can promise you absolutely nothing less,” Gorsuch concluded.
