Judge Neil Gorsuch is only following the advice of Chuck Schumer and Joe Biden.
On Tuesday, Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) attacked Supreme Court nominee Judge Neil Gorsuch for simply following “The Ginsburg Rule,” something that a month ago Schumer himself told reporters he supported.
“Judge Gorsuch looks like he’s playing dodgeball with the Senate Judiciary Committee,” Schumer declared. “He has bent over backward to avoid revealing anything, anything at all, about his judicial philosophy, or the legal issues that concern the American people.”
Schumer goes on to tell reporters, “There is no legally justifiable rationale for not answering the questions he was asked, he’s hiding behind this.”
However, in February, after meeting with Gorsuch, Schumer told reporters, “There is a grand tradition that I support that you can’t ask a judge who is nominated for a – a potential judge who is nominated for a judgeship – about a specific case that might come before them.”
Schumer’s statement sounds exactly like “The Ginsburg Rule” that Joe Biden outlined in 1993 during Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg confirmation hearing.
Biden told Ginsburg during her confirmation process, “You not only have a right to choose what you will answer and not answer, but in my view, you should not answer a question of what your view will be.”
Maybe Schumer should start listening to himself and not more radical voices in the Democratic Party.
