Trey Gowdy Calls Out Hypocrisy of Kamala Harris and Democrats over SCOTUS

Trey Gowdy has called out the hypocrisy of Kamala Harris and the Democrats regarding nominations for the Supreme Court.

Ahead of the Senate’s questioning of President Biden’s SCOTUS nominee Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson, Harris and Democrats are demanding “civility.”

However, this is a far cry from the Left’s treatment of Amy Coney Barrett and Brett Kavanaugh during their nomination hearings.

“Democrat Senators say they want a civilized hearing for Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson,” said Gowdy, a former South Carolina congressman.

“That it is time to return to the old days of focusing on judicial philosophy and qualifications and experience rather than degrade the Senate with a hearing that resembles bad, reality TV shows.

“Me too. I hope the proceeding is dignified. I just wonder where these calls for civility were with the last two GOP nominees.

“With Brett Kavanaugh, there was a mini-criminal trial, they brought in a prosecutor, a complaining witness, no topic was off-limits.

“Allegations of rape and drunkenness abounded.

“Senators claimed they want justices who are fair, but some senators act like partisan hacks.

“Surely things would be better for Judge Amy Coney Barrett?

“There would be less absurdity, surely there would be a desire for civility after the Kavanaugh fiasco?

“Surely not.

“Yes, I’m happy Senate Democrats have decided a little decorum is in order.

“I just find it ironic they want it now, but they didn’t want it back then.

“There is always a temptation to treat others as they have mistreated you and wrong others because you have been wronged.

“We should resist those temptations.

“A candidate’s judicial philosophy is a fair game, it’s fair to ask if a nominee can uphold a law they disagree with.

“It is fair to ask about criminal sentences imposed or not imposed and rules and orders and decisions.

“The confirmation process should be thorough, rigorous, and fair,” he said.

“If you want the justices to be fair, why don’t you prove it by acting fairly in your treatment of those justices.”
