A former law clerk to Associate Justice Neil Gorsuch sounded off during a Monday Fox News appearance over Republican Sen. Susan Collins’ claims that Gorsuch and Brett Kavanaugh misled her during their confirmation processes.
“For Susan Collins to say these two Supreme Court justices lied to her, it just shows that she did not do her homework and she has a fundamental misunderstanding of the law of precedent,” Mike Davis of the Article III Project said on “America’s Newsroom.”
Collins told The New York Times she felt “misled” after the Supreme Court upheld a Mississippi law prohibiting most abortions after the 15th week of pregnancy, despite Kavanaugh reportedly assuring the Maine senator in private that Roe was established precedent.
