GOP’s Sessions Vows To Make Kagan Hearings “Big Deal”
Alabama Senator Jeff Sessions, the ranking member of the Senate Judiciary Committee, said on This Week that confirmation hearings for Supreme Court nominee Elena Kagan will be a “big deal.”
“I think we’d like to know, in a real honest sense, whether her philosophy of law is so broad in her interpretation of the Constitution that you are not faithful to the Constitution and laws,” Sessions told host Jake Tapper. “In other words, a judge under their oath says you serve under the Constitution, not above it. So we want to know whether she faithfully will follow it even if she doesn’t like it,” he said.
“I think we’ll be looking at her testimony because she has so little other record, it’s going to be a big deal. It’s so important how she testifies,” Sessions added.
Thankfully, Sessions did not say, “Big f-ing deal.”Click here for reuse options!
