RUSH TRANSCRIPT WILLIAMS He ░░░░░░░░ a former clerk for ░░░░░░░░ Kavanaugh and justice Anthony ░░░░░░░░ Thank you so much ░░░░░░░░ I want to start ░░░░░░░░ getting your take on ░░░░░░░░ particular theory Because you ░░░░░░░░ for both justice Kennedy ░░░░░░░░ judge Kavanaugh Lot of ░░░░░░░░ believe when the judge ░░░░░░░░ that seat they should ░░░░░░░░ replacing the actions and ░░░░░░░░ of the justices they ░░░░░░░░ indeed replacing on the ░░░░░░░░ itself What is your ░░░░░░░░ on that type of ░░░░░░░░ replacement Walker There s ░░░░░░░░ no historical foundation or ░░░░░░░░ for that theory I ░░░░░░░░ think however that justice ░░░░░░░░ and judge Kavanaugh have ░░░░░░░░ lot in common Justice ░░░░░░░░ always spoke glowingly of ░░░░░░░░ Kavanaugh WILLIAMS Certainly Along ░░░░░░░░ the similarities there are ░░░░░░░░ distinctions Can you tell ░░░░░░░░ what some of those ░░░░░░░░ can be Walker I ░░░░░░░░ expect justice Kennedy self ░░░░░░░░ as a bit more ░░░░░░░░ pragmatist Judge Kavanaugh is ░░░░░░░░ formalist I think of ░░░░░░░░ the 14 times that ░░░░░░░░ Supreme Court has endorsed ░░░░░░░░ opinion by Judge Kavanaugh ░░░░░░░░ Kennedy was in majority ░░░░░░░░ those decisions I think ░░░░░░░░ s suggest lot of ░░░░░░░░ between justice Kennedy and ░░░░░░░░ Kavanaugh and the mainstream ░░░░░░░░ American legal thought WILLIAMS ░░░░░░░░ m glad you brought ░░░░░░░░ up I want to ░░░░░░░░ your attention to one ░░░░░░░░ those vindications That s ░░░░░░░░ 2001 Heller decision that ░░░░░░░░ course Judge Kavanaugh wrote ░░░░░░░░ dissent for In it ░░░░░░░░ essentially this is back ░░░░░░░░ 2001 he essentially says ░░░░░░░░ are those Second Amendment ░░░░░░░░ rights that do include ░░░░░░░░ weapons in that case ░░░░░░░░ as you say the ░░░░░░░░ Court did vindicate that ░░░░░░░░ disregarded that D ban ░░░░░░░░ semis I want to ░░░░░░░░ you as we move ░░░░░░░░ to 2018 and what ░░░░░░░░ and data undisputedly show ░░░░░░░░ an uptick of mass ░░░░░░░░ shootings in this country ░░░░░░░░ you believe working with ░░░░░░░░ Kavanaugh that if the ░░░░░░░░ supported it that balance ░░░░░░░░ all important balance against ░░░░░░░░ Constitution itself and those ░░░░░░░░ of public safety that ░░░░░░░░ judge would be open ░░░░░░░░ a factual evolution on ░░░░░░░░ facts Walker It s ░░░░░░░░ great question Heller was ░░░░░░░░ in 2008 And then ░░░░░░░░ follow up case was ░░░░░░░░ by the D C ░░░░░░░░ Judge Kavanugh was on ░░░░░░░░ panel about whether or ░░░░░░░░ semiautomatic rifles can be ░░░░░░░░ The Supreme Court has ░░░░░░░░ yet addressed that particular ░░░░░░░░ Judge Kavanaugh wrote a ░░░░░░░░ thoughtful historically based decision ░░░░░░░░ said the kind of ░░░░░░░░ you re talking about ░░░░░░░░ precluded by two things ░░░░░░░░ one it s precluded ░░░░░░░░ the Supreme Court s ░░░░░░░░ decision And Judge Kavanaugh ░░░░░░░░ a follower of the ░░░░░░░░ Court precedent It s ░░░░░░░░ precluded by the Second ░░░░░░░░ the decision of the ░░░░░░░░ to make that balancing ░░░░░░░░ themselves and to take ░░░░░░░░ of that question out ░░░░░░░░ the democratic process I ░░░░░░░░ what we can learn ░░░░░░░░ Judge Kavanaugh from his ░░░░░░░░ in Heller is that ░░░░░░░░ cares a lot about ░░░░░░░░ he cares a lot ░░░░░░░░ history and he cares ░░░░░░░░ lot about Supreme Court ░░░░░░░░ And I suspect as ░░░░░░░░ justice he is going ░░░░░░░░ be faithful to all ░░░░░░░░ those things WILLIAMS Absolutely ░░░░░░░░ up on that that ░░░░░░░░ profound it s sight ░░░░░░░░ you think though I ░░░░░░░░ s a strict texturallist ░░░░░░░░ s a clear record ░░░░░░░░ the public we ve ░░░░░░░░ so far Do you ░░░░░░░░ even amongst that strict ░░░░░░░░ of the Constitution by ░░░░░░░░ the letter there is ░░░░░░░░ willingologist from you see ░░░░░░░░ the judge to consider ░░░░░░░░ type of balancing determination ░░░░░░░░ I think that there ░░░░░░░░ many texts within the ░░░░░░░░ that not only allows ░░░░░░░░ that balancing but that ░░░░░░░░ it The fourth amendment ░░░░░░░░ unreasonable search and judge ░░░░░░░░ wrote an opinion what ░░░░░░░░ ruled for the criminal ░░░░░░░░ Saying it would be ░░░░░░░░ of privacy for the ░░░░░░░░ to put a gps ░░░░░░░░ on that defendant s ░░░░░░░░ without probable cause I ░░░░░░░░ that s one of ░░░░░░░░ issues where Judge Kavanaugh ░░░░░░░░ to text history and ░░░░░░░░ When these factors require ░░░░░░░░ balancing you re talking ░░░░░░░░ Judge Kavanaugh does it ░░░░░░░░ a very mainstream even ░░░░░░░░ way In the case ░░░░░░░░ that matter it was ░░░░░░░░ vindication by the Supreme ░░░░░░░░
