HomeNews WireWATCH: CNN Reporter Tries To Entrap Supreme Court Justice, His Response Was Perfect Editor November 23, 2019 CNN (which is now known to be the least trusted name in news) aired an interview with Supreme Court Justice Neil Gorsuch, who was one of the justices appointed by President Trump, to ask him about his new book "A Republic, If You Can Keep It". But they had other plans as well to try and get him to speak negatively about the President. Ariane de Vogue's interview with Justice Gorsuch spent most of the time searching and trying to squeeze anything anti-Trump drop out of Gorsuch so they could blast it all over the news, but Gorsuch was too smart to fall for the trap. de Vogue asked Gorsuch, "Last fall, Chief Justice John Roberts…he issued a very rare statement because the President of the United States was attacking judges. And the president doubled-down afterwords, and said, "Sorry Chief Justice John Roberts, but you do indeed have 'Obama judges,' and they have a much different point of view than the people who are charged with the safety of our country." Do the attacks on those judges threaten the rule of law and everything that you just discussed about laws and about judges? Gorsuch responded brilliantly. Gorsuch: "What I say to that is, the rule of law in this country is strong — strong and stable. And we are very fortunate. We shouldn't forget how fortunate we are. And we shouldn't forget how fortunate we are, we should take care with what we have. It's a great inheritance. And I would say to anybody who questions what a wonderful inheritance we have in our courts and the rule of law in this country: Go spend six weeks in a court in another country, of your choice, and come back and tell me what you think about our courts in this country." de Vogue: "And what would you say to somebody who attacks judges. And also, what does that do for the safety of judges? … I think that these attacks are important. Ruth Bader Ginsburg recently said these are age-old, but judges can't defend themselves." Gorsuch: "Well, I think I'm doing a pretty good job of it now with you in explaining, I hope, the role of law, the role of judges in our country, and why I think we have something very special that we forget, at our risk. Is it easy to take for granted? Is it easy to forget what a gift we have? Of course, it is. I hear young people, for example, say, 'I'm a citizen of the world.'"
