(Esquire) - Since hearings for judge Neil Gorsuch started, the Senate Judiciary Committee -- as well as the rest of America -- has seen Gorsuch's personality on display.
Esquire details a series of questioning from Democrat Patrick Leahy that brought up President Trump's violation of the emoluments clause. Specifically, what he thought it meant.
The article draws out quotes from Gorsuch where he sometimes seemed condescending in his answer or elusive in providing his opinion, knowing that at the very least, it was being "evaluated" over the current president.
"Well, I am hesitant to discuss any part of the Constitution to the extent we're talking about a case that's likely to come before a court, pending or impending."
The condescending part of his response is that no one knew what the Emolument Clause was until recently.
Giving Gorsuch a hard time in a hearing under the most blatantly corrupt and controversial president in recent memory, is necessary to Democrats against a Republican-led majority, as they denied President Obama's nomination last year after "originalist" conservative Justice Antonin Scalia died.
Currently, President Trump's picks for his cabinet all have questionable backgrounds and little experience, resulting in the richest cabinet appointees ever put into power -- billionaires -- throwing a confirmation of Gorsuch in the same category of controversial picks.
SurvJourno NewsWave published a link to a petition for signatures to stop the confirmation of Neil Gorsuch.
