TED CRUZ SLAMS DEMS AT GORSUCH HEARING: ‘Was Justice Ginsburg or Justice Breyer asked about the sexual harassment that had been filed against President Clinton by Paula Jones? No’
Texas Senator Ted Cruz blasts Democrats today during confirmation hearing of U.S. Supreme Court nominee Neil Gorsuch’s Supreme Court.
Democrats use their usual “baseless” claims against Gorsuch accusing him of being “against the little guy because he has dared to rule on the law — the law that Congress has passed — and not on the specific identity of the specific litigants appearing before him.”
Cruz was apparently referencing comments by individuals like Democratic Senator Mazie Hirono from Hawaii, who claimed she saw “a pattern” of ignoring “the little guy.”
Cruz reminded the Democrats on what is the job of a Supreme Court judge, “a judge’s job is not to protect the little guy or the big guy. A judge swears in oath to uphold the constitution fairly, impartially and equally for every litigant.”
“In the past weeks as well, some of my Democratic colleagues have questioned Judge Gorsuch’s independence, suggested that he needs to answer questions about the actions and statements and even the tweets of the President who appointed him.”
“I would ask, was Justice Ginsburg or Justice Breyer asked about the sexual harassment that had been filed against President Clinton by Paula Jones? No, neither was asked about that lawsuit.”
“Those questions were not asked because they were inappropriate political questions that have nothing to do with the record of the nominee before this committee.”
