Sam Alito wants you to trust what he is saying now, not what he said in the past.
Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., an abortion rights supporter and the only woman on the Senate Judiciary Committee, said she asked the conservative judge about a document released Monday showing Alito in 1985 telling the Reagan administration he was particularly proud to help argue that “the Constitution does not protect a right to an abortion.”
“He said first of all it was different then,” she said. “He said, ‘I was an advocate seeking a job, it was a political job and that was 1985. I’m now a judge, I’ve been on the circuit court for 15 years and it’s very different. I’m not an advocate, I don’t give heed to my personal views, what I do is interpret the law.”‘
When asked whether she found his answer satisfactory, Feinstein said: “The question is, Did I believe he was being absolutely truthful, and I did.”
Alito did not respond to reporters’ questions about the document before meeting Feinstein. “I’m just here to speak with Sen. Feinstein,” Alito said.
Jeebus, Di-Fi! Did you trust what Alito told you in 1990 when he promised to recuse himself from any case involving Vanguard?
