Sen. Feinstein seeks to slow Gorsuch Supreme Court nomination, requests more information

Sen. Dianne Feinstein, the ranking Democrat on the Senate Judiciary Committee, said Tuesday she’s lodged a number of requests for more information from Judge Neil Gorsuch before the panel considers his Supreme Court nomination.

Ms. Feinstein sent Judge Gorsuch a letter last Wednesday asking whether he played a role during his time in the Justice Department on ten high-profile cases, including Guantanamo Bay detainees, U.S. torture policy, partial birth abortion and warrantless wiretapping.

Judge Gorsuch was principal deputy associate attorney general from 2005 to 2006.

Mrs. Feinstein also asked Judge Gorsuch to list significant cases, policies and initiatives where he “assisted in the development and implementation.” And she sent a separate letter asking about his involvement with the Republican National Lawyers Association and the association’s Judicial Confirmation Task Force.

    This Justice only brings the Court back into balance.
    The next one and one after that will shape the court for decades
    and the Party of NO will be viewed as obstructionists and more
    akin’ to “the little boy who cried wolf”!

    Please remember it was the obama admin that screwed up the computer work on the obamacare and it cost the tax payers dearly. They had to hire someone else and start over. They still paid the original screw ups even though they did nothing but cause problems. Eventually the government should have to get the permission of the tax payers to do anything. They do not assist us, they punish us.

  • dmttbt says:

    That is the democrat socialist people at work. Everything they are questioning the republicans on are things that obama was doing but they seemed to be ok with it then. Wasn’t it obama’s administration that wanted to listen in on everyone’s conversations and record and store them?

  • Janis says:

    Another pasty-faced corpse the Dem Party has rolled out to speak. Dems, face it, your time is OVER.

  • edorr1atcoxdotnet says:

    She should be required to reveal what party she really belongs to: Democrat or Communist? This leftist senator has done nothing but try to take God out of American history for one thing.

  • mudguy1 says:

    Sen. Dianne Feinstein needs to list all of her accomplishments.

    1. Retired says:

      Old age and a big mouth.

      1. MoonBeamWatcher says:

        Was fond of her mother, or so THEY say.

        1. Retired says:

          Her mother must have dropped her on her head.

  • justinwachin says:

    Sen. Feinstein may want to know the answers before she asks the questions. Gorsuch’s answers could cause this to backfire on the senator.

    I have no problem seeing the senators do their job and investigate the nominee. I would expect the same of a nominee put forward by a Democrat president.

    This underscores the problem with lifetime judicial appointments. Once the person is on the bench they are there. Maybe these appointments would not be as high stakes if the court system ended the practice of judicial activism and returned to the limits placed on them by the Constitution.

  • Joe Don says:

    Feinstein is not leadership material. I am starting to think that all Democrats and too many Republicans are not either. TERM LIMITS!!!!

  • Ken says says:

    That’s good Great Grandma – get all your questions answered so the Senate can vote. I want to hear where he stands on criticizing ANY JUDGE that is obviously playing with an agenda – I don’t care what the agenda is – criticize them and hold them accountable – even the SCOTUS.

  • randy jackson says:

    Finklestein is simply a dumb bit(h

  • Term limits,we may drain the swamp from some of these useless so called politicians.The weasels don’t support our President and that is horrible.

    1. dmttbt says:

      It is horrible that they do not support Trump but not if they don’t support obama. That is a reasonable statement.

    Dianne brings a special depth to the adjective “stupid”.
    Appearing on Face the Nation, Dianne Feinstein attempted to circle the wagons around the Democrat lie of individuals keeping their insurance under Obamacare, stating the claim only applied up to the time Obamacare was passed.
    “Well, as I understand it, you can keep it up to the time — and I hope this is correct, but this is what I’ve been told — up to the time the bill was enacted, and after that, it’s a different story.”

    At a Senate hearing about gun control, Dianne Feinstein claimed she’s seen bullets that implode.

    Good let her they looked like total nits last night when the president spoke. Keith Ellison and Washmymouthout Debbie Shitz looked like they were about to cry. The more the snake rears it’s head the more good hunting there will be.

    McCain already got his, called out for ties with money from Saudi Arabia and a letter from Russia saying he asked for money from them for his campaign.

    Trump seems to be Charmed and those people Damned.

    1. Ken says says:

      There are some things we can agree on. We really love Schultzie.

      1. Tiger says:

        She is such a schmultz. Liawatha and Chuckie Cluckie Schumer, Nancy Botoxie Roxie, Toxic Tim Kane, they got some real flippin flaptrap buggers in there.

        1. Ken says says:

          It was a beautiful sight watching them exit the Chamber quickly with heads down and tails between their legs. BTW – I’m an Independent that bailed ouy of the group of Conservatives as more extreme religious right claimed to be Conservatives.

        2. dmttbt says:

          Schumer’s niece is suppose to be a comedian but he is much more of a clown than she is. I have to change channels every time she comes on and I definitely try to miss him. I am 68 years old and I don’t have all that much sense left and her at 90 could not be all that sharp. Look what happened with Harrison Ford, he repeatedly told the people at the airport that he was flying a helicopter and then missed the run way. Tell me there isn’t some dementia involved there.

          1. Tiger says:

            LOLOL what a good and funny post. My guess is you have more sense at 68 than most drugged up youth have today. Sad about Ford he certainly has a problem.

    2. Retired says:

      Time to do a Check on all in Congress and do Drug testing on them as well . let them Pee in a bottle like the military so we can weed out the trash that is above the law.

      1. Tiger says:

        That is an absolutely great idea and nurses have random drug tests also. I also believe some need to have mental evaluations.

  • Mike N says:

    Did she ask that type of questions for Kagan and Sotomayor? I doubt it.

  • Oldawg70 says:

    Feinstein is a prime example of the fecal matter floating in America’s political swamp! Go Trump/Pence!

  • Janthony132 says:

    What a sorry piece of shit to call herself a patriotic Senator. I call her an obstructionist – can do nothing except cause trouble. Is against guns (yet she carry’s a 357 magnum in her purse)

    1. Ramon1710 . says:

      As with all communist administrators, one set of rules for the common people, a better set of rules for those running things.

      “We make our own rules” – Joe Biden

      1. Ken says says:

        That has been the Establishment goal for 28 years – the 99% equally poor pawns and the Wealthy Liberal Elite running the Government and your lives.

    1. Retired says:

      Term limits come to mind, for her and other old sheep in congress on both sides of the fence .

  • P-daddy says:

    It is becoming very clear, that they are not thinking about the American People anymore. They are only thinking of themselves and their pathetic stature and self importance. We need to clean house. 2018 won’t come soon enough.

  • Webb says:

    Senator FEINSTEIN… The information you have Requested will not be Forth Coming!
    If you had 2700 hundred pages of information from Gorsuch…You would still have Vote yea to see whats in It…
    REMEMBER like Obamacare, “We have to Pass It to see What’s In It”…
    A Conservative Supreme Court Justice is Forth Coming…

  • mort_f says:

    Every bit of her questions are about ‘activities’ that occurred BEFORE he was confirmed as an appeals court judge. Were those hearings meaningless?

  • TexRancher says:

    This Socialist has more information from Gorsuch than she ever asked about Obama in eight years! As a matter of fact, she and her anti-American socialists gave Obama a complete pass on anything and everything he wanted or did!Now she wants even more from Gorsuch? There’s only one reason and that is to obstruct the process! As an AMERICAN voter, I’m telling her that we’re fed up with their agenda to destroy this country. She had a chance to lead so now I’m saying follow or get the HELL out of the way!

    1. Retired says:

      All she is doing, stall as long as possible , so the court convenes one member short . Did she demand this much information for Obamas appointment .
