Secretary of State Antony Blinken wasnât the one particular person lit up by Sen. Ted Cruz this week. Cruz requested President Bidenâs nominee to the Ninth Circuit Court docket of Appeals, Jennifer Sung, if she believes that Justice Brett Kavanaugh is âintellectually and morally bankrupt,â seeing as she signed a letter stating that again in 2018. It seems it was simply ârhetorical advocacy.â
Sen. Ted Cruz asks Biden Ninth Circuit nominee Jennifer Sung if she believes Justice Brett Kavanaugh is âintellectually and morally bankrupt.â
Sung: It was ârhetorical advocacy.â
Cruz: âIt’s disappointing that you just refuse to reply that query, itâs a easy sure, no query.” pic.twitter.com/HYrYDWiLOM

I’m not certain that having an appellate choose prepared to signal statements for the sake of ârhetorical advocacyâ is a good suggestion. Some of us take the issues judges signal very critically.

And who would need a choose who would not stand behind their statements with conviction? Honest-weather (or a minimum of lukewarm) stances and jurisprudence do not go nicely collectively.

Good grief!! ð© sure or no may you make it any easier

I find it irresistible after they get caught and and easily is not going to reply the query.
â John HUGHES (@JohnHUG16026330) September 14, 2021
If she canât reply a easy sure or no query Iâm considering she doesnât should have the place!

Not answering wasnât even the worst half, the worst half is there’s a individual that could possibly be appointed to a judgeship that makes use of rhetorical advocacy.
â Ryan Fuson (@RyanFuson22) September 14, 2021
@potus @tedcruz How can somebody that canât reply a easy query be confirmed? This was a significant mistake on her half getting concerned on this letter and displays a scarcity of judgment. #jennifersung

Cautious, @tedcruz . You may be labeled a member of He Man Girl Hater’s Membership for asking these sorts of powerful questions.
â Allen White (@allenrwhite) September 14, 2021
Cruz in lawyer-mode is one thing to behold. He simply crushes folks.
â Joe (@donttweetonme) September 14, 2021
I may respect her for having a distinct opinion on the matter, however I can not respect her for not standing behind her personal phrases and making an attempt to weasel herself out like this. If anybody is intellectually and morally bankrupt, it is her.
â Mr. Fusion (@MrFusion2020) September 14, 2021
So mainly Sung simply proved that SHE is âintellectually and morally bankrupt.â
â Shawn (@srp1033) September 14, 2021
If she needed to inform the reality: “I’ll say no matter I’ve to to get consideration and noteriety. I’m solely sitting right here immediately due to it.”
â Dante (@AKinferno) September 14, 2021
Go for her jugular, Senator Cruz.
â Christine Flowers (@flowerlady61) September 14, 2021
Whereas she cannot be compelled to reply the query -not even a US Senator could make you reply a question- she will’t run from her previous, not as a candidate for the Ninth circuit courtroom of appeals. She was nailed.
Nicely accomplished Senator Cruz.

Ms. Sung did not reveal the judicial temperament important to a profitable candidate, each when she joined the smear marketing campaign in opposition to Justice Kavanaugh and in her efficiency on this listening to.
TY, @sentedcruz, for highlighting her character.
â Mary Luigi (@MaryLuigi1919) September 14, 2021
She could be a catastrophe on the bench.
â Twit Ter Sux (@5g9P8GdZW1c9Ift) September 14, 2021
Disappointing. Both she believes the assertion or she regrets it. Why is it so exhausting for her to state her present ideas on BK? If she thinks he is morally bankrupt, say so. If not, additionally say so. When a candidate dodges a query like this, it speaks to THEIR character.
â Enter The Dragon (@FromTheElbow) September 14, 2021
That awkward second when your individual phrases come again to derail your nomination.
And why is an legal professional “advocating with rhetoric”? Should not they be dealing in “FACT”? Particularly when they’re being tracked to the bench??? I do know who’s intellectually and morally bankruptâ¦
â Jack Muffington (@JMuffington) September 14, 2021
So simply questioning what number of different assaults on Kavanaugh ‘s character have been issues that the attackers did not imagine and have been simply “rhetorical advocacy”? https://t.co/QrZSKENX0S
