(Washington Examiner) Rep. Trey Gowdy, R-S.C., all but endorsed President Trump’s view that the judiciary is politicized on Sunday.
Last week Trump engaged in a public back-and-forth with Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts, who rebuked the president’s assertion that a “Obama judge” ruled against his border policy. “We do not have Obama judges or Trump judges, Bush judges or Clinton judges,” Roberts said in an extraordinary statement.
Gowdy, a former federal prosecutor, said he wished he could agree with Roberts.
“I wish Chief Justice Roberts were right. I wish there were not a politicization of the judiciary. But it’s not just politicians,” Gowdy said Sunday on CBS’s “Face thew Nation.”
