Incompetent Or Arrogant? Biden Nominee Refuses To Answer Kennedy NINE (9) Times In Five (5) Minutes

Incompetent Or Arrogant? Biden Nominee Refuses To Answer Kennedy NINE (9) Times In Five (5) Minutes

It took Sen. John Kennedy five minutes to ask the same question of one of President Obama’s judicial nominees nine times in a row because she didn’t give him a straight answer each time.

Vice President Joe Biden has chosen Anne Traum to be a judge in the District of Nevada. During a Senate Judiciary Committee hearing on Thursday, Louisiana Republican Sen. John Thune asked Traum about her views on criminal justice.

“Do you think we should let criminals off the hook because we want to be fair to everyone else? Kennedy asked about it.

I’m glad you asked that question. I know that all issues of crime and all ways to deal with crime are policy issues. So, those are important issues for our community and our country, but if I were to become a judge, I would not be a policymaker. Traum said that before Kennedy cut her off.

“I’m not asking you for your opinion as a judge,” says the person. I want to know what you think as a person and as a law professor. I’ll agree with all of you that you’re going to be fair and unbiased in everything you do. Now, do you think that people who misbehave or do things that are against the law should be let off because of social justice? Another time, Kennedy tried.

“Senator, I do believe that all criminal policy is a matter of policy.” Traum kept going until the Republican senator asked her again if, as a person, she thinks that an illegal act should be forgiven in the name of social justice.

It isn’t a view that I have taken in my work. Traum is a law professor at the University of Nevada-Las Vegas.

She was nominated for one of two jobs that the Administrative Office of the U.S. Courts thought needed to be filled quickly. This is how she was chosen: Democratic Sens. Catherine Cortez Masto and Jacky Rosen were part of a judicial commission in Nevada that chose her.

Then what? Kennedy said that. “Is your answer “no”?

Traum said again that she hasn’t “officially” agreed with the way she thinks about it.

“Professor, I want to know what you think.” I think this is very simple. If an illegal act was done for the sake of social justice, do you think it should be let go of? “It’s pretty easy,” Kennedy said.

I think that we have laws that are made by policy-making bodies like this one. “Senator, I think that we have laws that are made by policy-making bodies like this one.”

“I got everything.” Do you think that a crime should be forgiven in the name of fairness for other people? Kennedy, who was getting angry, said:

There are both criminal laws and a process by which people are held accountable if they are charged with a crime. People come to the court to be held accountable. Also, I have a lot of respect for that process. Traum said this.

“Yes, I do, too,” Kennedy replied. “Do you think that a crime should be forgiven in the name of fairness for other people?

Traum said that each person who goes to court has a different case, and she “respects that process.”

This isn’t the first time Kennedy has asked this question.

Traum: “I don’t think I could say, with respect to any single case or as a general rule, with respect to any type of case–”

“Do you not have an opinion on this matter?” Kennedy thought.

There is no way for Traum to say what should be done in a certain case.

You’ll be a federal judge if you get the job when it’s done. I agree with my friend, Sen. Durbin, that judicial temperance is important, and I will say the same thing. However, I think that being impartial is even more important. Kennedy said this: “And I’m amazed that you won’t answer my question.”

Asked the question again, “Maybe I’m the one,” Kennedy said. “Do you think that we should forgive a crime in the name of fairness for other people?

The senator agreed that we should be unbiased, but he also agreed that our criminal justice system and process are very unique, so what should happen in any given case is a matter of the process and the specific facts. That’s what Traum said.

“Do you think that a bad thing should be forgiven in the name of social justice?” Kennedy asked again.

Traum was about to say that the outcome of a case depends on its own unique circumstances when the Louisiana Republican cut her off again to ask if she had a favorite color.

Traum said that, which made Kennedy say that he had at least one straight answer from the nominee.

I can’t vote for you, not if you don’t answer the questions. Kennedy said this: Then: “I mean, that was really bad.
