Gloves are off. That did not last long. He’s talking about the administration allegedly “sponsoring torture” and “spying on its citizens” and saying perhaps Pres.

Baldly misstating the facts. And he’s still has the chutzpah
– or something — to attack Judge Alito’s “ethics” for ruling in the Vanguard case, even though every reputable legal ethicist has dismissed this as bunk and the ABA conducted an ethical review of Judge Alito and gave him its highest rating.
