According to a new report, Conservative Supreme Court Justice Samuel Alito is upset with Amy Coney Barrett And Brett Kavanaugh.
It appears that Supreme Court Justice Samuel Alito, a bona fide conservative, is just as frustrated with fellow Justices Amy Coney Barrett and Brett Kavanaugh as former President Donald Trump.
According to reports, after Barrett and Kavanaugh joined Democrats and ostensible conservative Chief Justice John Roberts last Thursday in voting to keep Obamacare intact and to avoid a sweeping ruling on religious liberty, Alito was “pissed.”
“I think Alito was just pissed. He was frustrated,” South Texas College of Law professor Josh Blackman said to Politico.
He added that despite the justices’ ostensible ideological classifications (six conservatives, three liberals), these days it seems like “you have a three-three-three court” instead.
Here are the Supreme Court camps:
Liberal Justices: Stephen G. Breyer, Sonia Sotomayor and Elena Kagan
Moderate Justices: Justices Barrett, Brett Kavanaugh, and John Roberts
Conservative Justices: Justices Alito, Gorsuch, and Clarence Thomas
Both Barrett and Kavanaugh voted to uphold ObamaCare on Wednesday, confirming the constitutionality of the Affordable Care Act by a 7-2 margin. Justice Samuel Alito was joined by Justice Neil Gorsuch in dissent.
“I fought very hard for them,” Trump told Just the News’ Water Cooler on Monday. “But I was very disappointed with a number of their rulings.”
The former president told host David Brody that he’s not indulging second thoughts about having nominated the conservative justices to the court.
“Second guessing does no good,” he noted. “But I was disappointed with a number of rulings that they made.”
