Bench Memos

NRO’s home for judicial news and analysis.

Senator Schumer


at the National Press Club right now (it’s on C-SPAN 3) sounds like he has already decided he’s not going to like Roberts’s answers to Dem questions.

He promises the hearings will drag on: “It’s going to take a long time.” “To set a deadline…that would not allow us to do our job.” (September 29th being the talked-about deadline–not exactly unreasonable–hasn’t Schumer already realeased.)

He’s obsessing about a deadline–you’d think “no deadlines” for hearings votes can ever be agreed on were in the Constitution. Maybe in a living Constitution that is. I’ll have to consult the Supreme Court.
