Harmeet Dhillon Appears on Fox News’ ‘The Ingraham Angle’ to Discuss Trump’s Impending SCOTUS Pick
It’s not appropriate even for a sitting judge or a candidate to say how they would vote on a specific issue because each case has to be taken on its merits. But it isn’t just Roe, Laura. I just got an e-mail Nancy Pelosi, who is my member of congress, with the hysteria that we’re talking about rolling back LGBT rights, we’re talking about Roe v. Wade, we’re talking about the rights of the disabled, we’re talking about the rights of women. I mean, you know, it’s going to be a dystopia, if the president gets to appoint another supreme court justice, and guess what? They said all of those same things with Neil Gorsuch, and none of that happened. This is just the democratic playbook, we see it every time.
The laws need to be made in Congress, and signed by the president and then implemented, you know, ruled on by the courts. Not made by the judges, and that’s really the problem here. When you see Corey Booker going full Venezuela with this hysteria that maybe we should just suspend the normal rules and allow this frivolous complaint against the president, who is, by the way, not under criminal investigation, that’s completely false. We can’t allow them to disrupt this process like that.
If you want to play by those rules, Democrats, think about what happens when you have the White House. Do you want frivolous complaints against your president to suspend the rule of law? Secondly, number two, there is a real human cost, Laura, to having a split on the Supreme Court where there is a vacancy. That means a lot of cases, death penalty cases, other cases simply don’t get heard because there isn’t a quorum to hear them, and we don’t want that to happen.
It’s always a congressional election. It’s the congressional elections year round. That same ruling does not apply. We had a lame duck president in the last situation, and we don’t have a lame duck president. We have a sitting president in the first half of his term, and that’s not how our constitution is written. So go back and read the constitution, and then come back. The reality is, he gets a vote.
