Gorsuch: I Have No Problem Ruling Against President’s Wishes

Supreme Court

Share:

During today’s hearing, Judge Gorsuch demonstrated that his allegiance is to the Constitution, not to any party. And that’s how it should be.

Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley (R-IA) kicked off day two of Supreme Court nominee Neil Gorsuch’s confirmation hearing by asking the candidate if he’d be able to distance his opinions from President Trump.

“That’s a softball Mr. Chairman,” Gorsuch said. “I have no problem ruling against any party.”

If confirmed, Gorsuch said he would simply decide cases as the law requires.

“There’s no such thing as a Republican judge or a Democratic judge,” he emphasized. “We just have judges in this country.”

His judicial philosophy puts value upon independence and the separation of powers. He would focus on “administering justice” above all.

“You want someone who will put politics aside,” he added.

In other words, he will leave his personal agenda at home.
