Feinstein Opening Statement


Feinstein says Alito’s appointment would be pivotal because he’s replacing O’Connor, then attacks Court’s opinions on congressional power. Fails to note that O’Connor was in the majority in all the opinions Feinstein complains about.

In discussing Alito’s Rybar dissent, Feinstein confuses the Commerce Clause with the 2nd Amendment.

Tries to link reapportionment issue to Brown v. Board. Wink, wink.

Laundry list of concerns.
