Ron Klain: Gorsuch Would Be the ‘Most Conservative’ Judge in 25 Years

‘He’s a very conservative nominee’


KLAIN: "Well, you know, through history, Chris, presidents have been sometimes been surprised by their nominees. But the surprise here would be if Judge Gorsuch was surprising. He's a very, very conservative nominee. There's a standard academic score for this and it says that he'd be the most conservative Supreme Court nominee in 25 years. He'd be the eighth most conservative member on this court. So I don't think there are going to be many such surprises from Judge Gorsuch. And I think that's what Donald Trump wanted in a nominee and I think that's what he got."
