Sen. Hatch: Trump Wants Supreme Court To Uphold Constitution, Stop Playing Politics


Sen, Orrin Hatch, ranking member of the Senate Judiciary Committee discusses what he thinks the president is looking for in his selection of a new Supreme Court Justice.

"The Democrats now are so upset that the Republicans have this opportunity to appoint nominees to the court that they make every doggone appointment a cause celebre, tht's the way they do it," he said.

"I think the president really wants somebody who is going to uphold the constitution and stand behind those laws and quit playing politics with the Supreme Court. And I think, I think when he gets through this evening most people will be very pleased with his choice."

"I think any of those four will get through the process," he said about the top four nominees reported in the press. "One or more of them may have a more difficult time, but I think that the Republican party is going to be behind whoever it is and I hope there will be some honest Democrats who will go beyond politics and recognize the achievements of whoever the president picks."
