Kathryn: Harry Reid voted against John Roberts’s nomination to be Chief Justice. (Here’s the roll-call vote.) So it’s rather odd for him to be claiming that Roberts fooled him. In any event, if Reid is going to allege that Roberts “didn’t tell us the truth,” is it too much to ask that he identify a single statement that Roberts made that Reid alleges was false?
Unfortunately, Reid has a long history of reckless and irresponsible statements. Recall Reid’s baseless assertion that Justice Thomas is an “embarrassment” to the Court because his opinions are supposedly “poorly written.” (Here, here, and here are a few other examples from previous posts of mine.)
