Former Assistant US Attorney David Weinstein Discusses SCOTUS Nominee Brett Kavanaugh


GEORGE BUSH'S LEGAL TEAM IN 2000 DURING THE PUSH TO STOP THE PRESIDENT ELECTION BLAT RECOUNT WE HAVE A GUEST WITH US

WE LOVE TALKING WITH YOU THANK YOU FOR COMING IN LET'S TALK ABOUT JUDGE KAVANAUGH YOU'RE SAYING HE MAY NOT BE AS CONSERVATIVE AS PEOPLE ARE SAYING THAT HE IS WHY? WHEN YOU LOOK AT THE CANDIDATE, WE ALL KNEW THEY WERE GOING TO PICK SOMEBODY WHO WAS FROM THE RIGHT SIDE OF THE AISLE AND GIVEN THE POSITIONS HE'S WRITTEN AND THE POSITIONS HE'S TAKEN AND MOST OF THESE OPINIONS HE'S A CONSERVATIVE, BUT HE ISN'T SOMEBODY WHO LIKES TO LEGISLATE FROM THE BENCH

HE BELIEVES LIKE SCALIA DID IN TEXTULISM, AND YOU LOOK AT THE WORDS ON THE PAGE TO SEE WHAT THEY SAY SO THE CONSERVATIVES LIKE HIM, THERE'S NO QUESTION ABOUT IT, BUT IS HE GOING TO BE AS FAR TO THE RIGHT EVERYBODY IS PORTRAYING HIM TO BE, OR A LITTLE BIT CLOSER TO THE CENTER IN LOOK FOR HE CLERKED FOR HE WAS CONSIDERED A SWING VOTE WE JUST HEARD FROM CHUCK SCHUMER HE SAID WE CANNOT CONFIRM THE EXTREMISTS AND THE POSSIBILITY AND ISSUES BROUGHT UP WITH WOMEN'S REPRODUCTIVE RIGHTS

ANYTHING POINT DIRECTLY TO THOSE PARTICULAR RIGHTS BEING IN JEOPARDY, AT THIS POINT? CERTAINLY IF YOU LOOK AT HIS DESCENT, IT WAS A DECISION WHERE THEY WERE DECIDING THE RIGHTS OF AN INCARCERATED MINOR WHO WAS AN IMMIGRANT HERE, ILLEGAL IMMIGRANT AND SHE WAS DESIRING TO HAVE THE BABY TERMINATED AND HE WAS NOT IN FAVOR OF ALLOWING TO MAKE HER OWN INDEPENDENCE DECISION HE WANTED THE GOVERNMENT TO REMOVE HER FROM CUSTODY AND SEND SEND THEM TO AND LET THEM COSPONSOR HER THAT TELLS ME HE'S NOT IN FAVOR OF THE INDEPENDENT RIGHT FOR WOMEN TO MAKE THE CHOICE REMEMBER, EVERY CASE IS UNIQUE AND FACTS ARE WHAT MAKE THE PARTICULAR CASE, AND THAT PARTICULAR CIRCUMSTANCE HE HUNG HIS HAT ON THE FACTS THAT WERE CONNECTED TO THAT CASE

HE'S A FATHER HE HAS TWO DAUGHTERS PERHAPS IN A DIFFERENT FACTUAL SITUATION, HE MIGHT NOT COME ACROSS AS HARD LINE IN HIS APPROACH, BUT CERTAINLY THE PEOPLE WHO ARE ON THE LEFT, WHO FEEL THAT HE'S GOING TO COME DOWN ON IT ARE GOING TO HANG THEIR HAT ON THAT AND BELIEVE THAT THAT'S THE WAY HE'S GOING TO DECIDE BUT HE'S WRITTEN A NUMBER OF OTHER OPINIONS A LOT OF THEM WERE ADMINISTRATIVE OPINIONS BECAUSE THAT'S WHAT YOU DO IN THE DC CIRCUIT

HE HASN'T ALWAYS COME DOWN ON THE SIDE OF BIG GOVERNMENT SOMETIMES HE COMES OUT AGAINST THE GOVERNMENT HAVING AN OVERRIDING DECISION HE SIDED IN FAVOR OF THE UNIONS AND SIDED IN FAVOR AGAINST THE UNIONS, SO WE'RE GOING TO HAVE TO WAIT AND SEE, IF HE'S CONFIRMED, IF HE'S GOING TO BE AS HARD A RIGHT WING JUDGE AS EVERYBODY PORTRAYS HIM TO BE HERE WAS HIS FIRST CHANCE TO INTRODUCE HIM TO PEOPLE AS PRESIDENT TRUMP NAMED HIM AS NOMINEE MY JUDICIAL PHILOSOPHY IS STRAIGHTFORWARD

A JUDGE MUST BE INDEPENDENT AND NOT INTERPRET THE LAW A JUDGE MUST INTERPRET STATUTES AS WRITTEN AND A JUDGE MUST INTERPRET THE CONSTITUTION AS WRITTEN INFORMED BY HISTORY AND TRADITION AND PRECEDENT AND PRECEDENT AND THAT SEEMS TO BE THE KEYWORD BECAUSE EVEN DURING HIS CONFIRMATION HEARINGS WHEN HE WAS APPOINTED TO THE FEDERAL BENCH BY GEORGE W

BUSH HE WAS ASKED ABOUT ROE V WADE AND HE SAID HE CONSIDERED THAT TO BE A PRECEDENT, THAT THAT WAS SETTLED LAW MAYBE NOT WHAT THE CONSERVATIVES WANT TO HEAR BUT IF HE'S GOING TO DO EXACTLY WHAT HE JUST SAID AND RELY ON PRECEDENT AND NOT TRY TO INTERJECT HIMSELF, THE PRECEDENT HAS BEEN SET THERE'S NO REASON TO OVERTURN THAT PRESENT AND AND IT'S NOT GOING TO COME UP TO THE SUPREME COURT IN A BLACK AND WHITE TYPE OF DECISION NO ONE IS GOING TO SAY NOW IT'S TIME TO OVERTURN ROE VERSUS WADE

IF HE GUIDED BY PRECEDENT AND GOING ALL THE WAY BACK TO THE DRAFTING OF THE CONSTITUTION, HE'S NOT GOING TO BE SO QUICK TO OVERTURN THAT PERHAPS SOMEBODY ELSE WILL BECOME THE SWING VOTE HE MAY MOVE SOMEBODY OFF THE ISLE AND MOVE THEM INTO THE CENTER AND QUICKLY DEMOCRATS ARE CONCERNED THINKING THIS PICK WAS MADE WITH THE MUELLER PROBE AND THE RUSSIA INVESTIGATION TOP OF MIND WHY IS THAT? ALL YOU HAVE TO DO IS GO BACK TO 2008 AND LOOK AT A LAW REVIEW ARTICLE, THE JUDGE MADE BASED ON SOME COMMENTS HE MADE

ONE OF THE BIGGEST COMMENTS HE MADE, A SITTING PRESIDENT SHOULDN'T BE SUBJECT TO A CIVIL OR CRIMINAL INVESTIGATION IF I WAS A SITTING PRESIDENT SUBJECT TO A CRIMINAL INVESTIGATION, I'D WANT SOMEBODY ON THE BENCH WHO WAS GOING TO SAY YOU SHOULDN'T BE SUBJECT TO IT IT WILL COME IN THE WAY OF TRYING TO QUASH THE SUBPOENA THAT'S GIVEN TO HIM WE ALREADY KNOW HOW KAVANAUGH WILL WORK ON THAT ISSUE OF COURSE HE'S THE CHOICE OF THIS PRESIDENT

HE HAS THE PERSPECTIVE OF SOMEONE WHO WORKED ON THE INVESTIGATION WITH KENNETH STAR WHEN THAT WAS BEING PROSECUTED HE SAW FIRSTHAND THE INVESTIGATION LIKE THAT CAN PUT ON A SITTING PRESIDENT HE HELPED DRAFT THOSE DOCUMENTS IN REFERENCE TO BILL CLINTON AND HELPED THE PROSECUTORS AND THE STATUTE THAT WAS PUT INTO EFFECT HE'S NOT NECESSARILY A BIG FAN OF THE STATUTE ITSELF, BUT HE'S BEEN PART OF THE PROCESS AND WEIGHS HEAVILY TO NOMINATE THIS
