The Son of Former Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy Helped Trump Secure Loans at Deutsche Bank

Just wanted to point out that Gorsuch isn’t the same kind of originalist as Thomas or Kavanaugh. He’s a fairly strict textualist who believes laws should be interpreted how they’re written first and then look at what the passers intended if there’s still a gray area.

He’s been pretty consistent in that approach by the way and it’s the reason why he’s sided with the liberal justices a few times. Textualism is also the reason why the 14th amendment can be so broadly interpreted. I’d take a Gorsuch over the, “I know the law says that but the people who wrote it didn’t mean that,” every day.
