Turning the Tables on Senator Schumer
By Mike Rappaport
Previously, I noted that Richard Epstein had various questions for Senator Schumer about his constitutional philosophy. Now, Steve Calabresi takes the point further, asking that Schumer -- who has been all about document requests concerning John Roberts -- should provide documents from his chambers:
Republicans are skeptical of the Schumer request and suspect the senator is on a fishing expedition to try to dig up something with which to oppose the hitherto unassailable Roberts nomination. Republicans have solid reason to suspect Schumer of this, since he was overheard saying on a cell phone that he was going to go to war against whoever the president nominated before Roberts was even nominated.
