It’s Kavanaugh vs Schumer II — Remember This Tense Exchange Over Roe vs Wade?

Judge Brett Kavanaugh and Sen. Chuck Schumer have met before, and it seems the same fireworks will rear it’s ugly head again during SCOTUS confirmation.

When you watch the exchange between Kavanaugh and Schumer during the judge’s confirmation hearings to the DC Circuit Court of Appeals, listen to the Senator’s question. He isn’t asking about the law or whether or not Kavanaugh will follow the Constitution when it pertains to Roe vs. Wade. He wants to know how he “feels” about the law.

Democrats legislate on feeling and not the Constitution. This is why when you watch an investigation or committee hearing, Democrats quickly lean to how a person is feeling about the inquiry rather than following the law before them.

At the time, Kavanuagh had been nominated to serve on the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals, a post to which he was confirmed and has been serving for the past 12 years. Schumer pressed Kavanaugh to provide his views on Roe, but the judge was circumspect.

“If confirmed to the D.C. Circuit, I would follow Roe v. Wade faithfully and fully,” he said. “That would be binding precedent of the court. It has been decided by the Supreme Court.”

A lot will be said about his use of the term “binding precedent,” but it’s important to recognize the context, which is that as a lower court judge he would have to be deferential to Supreme Court precedent. What he says is he doesn’t predict how he might rule were he on the Supreme Court.

That said, it’s also worth noting that Sen. Susan Collins, R-Maine, has said that she would not support a nominee that has “demonstrated hostility” toward Roe. That gives her a lot of wiggle room to vote yes…
