An old friend of mine (we were in grad school together, before he switched to law) posted this after Trump announced his nominee. I want to.point out that my friend is by no means conservative, and that his views may be subject to the influence of having worked with someone he found personable.

All that being said, he almost certainly knows more about Gorsuch than any of us, and more than Trump does. I’m not saying that Gorsuch would be my ideal Justice (and his family tree is not without issues). I fear for many things, including, inter alia, net neutrality under Gorsuch’s reading of Chevron.

But. I think he’s smart and smart people can learn. Let’s see what his hearing looks like before we decide.
