SUPREME COURT/TRUMP PEOPLE/NEIL GORSUCH: “Gorsuch spent a bulk of the time trying to prove his judicial independence and said the Trump administration never asked him to make promises to rule certain ways on certain decisions.
Asked specifically if he was asked to overrule Roe v. Wade, Gorsuch said no. He was further pressed on what he would have done if Trump had asked him to do so.
‘Senator, I would have walked out the door,’ Gorsuch said, as the room fell silent. ‘That’s not what judges do. They don’t do it at that end of Pennsylvania Avenue and they shouldn’t do it at this end either.’ “
