Senator Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) pretended during SCOTUS Nominee Neil Goruch’s confirmation hearing that he was actually Obama’s SCOTUS nomiee, Merrick Garland. The California senator ignored glowing reviews of Gorsuch and instead read from an old report on Obama’s choice Lifezette reported.
Feinstein asked not a single question. Instead, she read from the Bar Association’s report — of the previous Supreme Court nominee, Merrick Garland. It is the latest sign that Democrats are still stewing over what they regard as a “stolen seat” by Republicans who blocked Garland’s nomination pending the outcome of the November 2016 election.
“For many of us, what has happened this past year has been very painful,” said Feinstein, the ranking Democrat on the Senate Judiciary Committee. “And you have also done an evaluation of Judge Merrick Garland, who was not given the privilege even of a committee hearing.”…
…At the hearing, Feinstein continued to read more lines from Garland’s Bar Association report:
- “Garland is the best there is. He’s the finest judge I’ve ever met. There’s no one who is a peer.”
- “Judge Garland has no weaknesses … He may be the perfect human being.”
- “He is unnaturally blessed with brilliance. Things come to him quickly.”
- “In my opinion, there is no better federal judge than Chief Judge Garland.”
Talk about a complete disconnect from reality!
