U.S. Supreme Court Justice Samuel Alito has responded to the critics who have been demanding that he recuse himself from a Supreme Court case:
"No valid reason."
There you have it.
Sen. Dick Durbin, a Democrat from Illinois, recently demanded that Alito recuse himself from an upcoming case because the justice had "sat down for a pair of interviews with an attorney involved in the case."
Durbin was joined by other Democrats in saying that "Alito should not participate in the case of Moore v. United States after the Wall Street Journal opinion section released two interviews featuring the Republican-appointed justice."
Alito wasn't buying it.
"Because this case is scheduled to be heard soon, and because of the attention my planned participation in this case has already received, I respond to these concerns now," Alito responded, adding:
There is no valid reason for my recusal in this case.
The foundation of the complaint against Alito is the fact that he was recently interviewed by Wall Street Journal journalist David Rivkin, who also happens to be an attorney.
Rivkin is a lawyer who will soon be making arguments in the Supreme Court.
Alito says that doesn't matter. He was interviewed by Rivkin the journalist, not Rivkin the attorney.
"When Mr. Rivkin participated in the interviews and co-authored the articles, he did so as a journalist, not an advocate," Alito claimed.
The weaponization of politics and government by liberals in America lately has been absolutely sickening.
When Donald Trump burst onto the scene, he made conservative voters realize that it's okay to politely stand up for ourselves every once in a while, and liberals have been fighting against that idea ever since.
It started by name calling, labelling us bigots and racists no matter what we did. Now, it's progressed to altering America's legal system.
They're literally crazy.
