Sen. Mike Lee (R-UT) eviscerated Senate Democrats for calling the independence of Supreme Court nominee Judge Neil Gorsuch, and the Supreme Court itself, into question throughout Judge Gorsuch’s confirmation hearing.

“Now, I also find it interesting in the first two days of this hearing alone, we have seen the independence of Judge Gorsuch attacked no fewer than 27 times. We have seen the independence of the Supreme Court of the United States, and of the federal judiciary, called into question no fewer than 17 times,” Lee pointed out to the Senate Judiciary Committee.

Lee goes on to point how those statistics do not reflect statements made today, “and may well have doubled by today.”

“I find that troubling. I certainly find that something we ought not be aspiring to, what we ought to be aspiring to is talking about how we can improve the federal judiciary, talking about the highest ideals of our system,” Lee concluded.
