Feinstein to Gorsuch: ‘Knowing Where You Stand on Major Questions of the Day’ ‘Really Important’ to a Yes Vote

During Supreme Court nominee Judge Neil Gorsuch’s confirmation hearing on Wednesday, Senator Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) stated that “for us on this side, knowing where you stand on major questions of the day is really important to a vote aye.”

Feinstein “So, how does one look at you and we’ve talked about precedent, for the life of me, I really don’t know when you’re there, what you’re going to do with it. And it’s so — and as you say, this isn’t text. This is real life. And young women take everything for granted today, and all of that could be struck out with one decision.”

Gorsuch responded that he can’t promise how he’d rule, to which Feinstein responded that she didn’t expect him to.

She later added, “What worries me is you have been very much able to avoid any specificity, like no one I have ever seen before, and maybe that’s a virtue. I don’t know. But, for us on this side, knowing where you stand on major questions of the day is really important to a vote aye. And so, that’s why we press and press and press.”
