Fox Business Network’s Neil Cavuto appeared skeptical in his Wednesday interview with Sen. Orrin Hatch, in which he tenaciously probed the merits of Senate Republicans’ seemingly intractable stance on confirming a Supreme Court Justice.
Hatch, a member of the Senate Judiciary Committee, was adamantine that no nominee would be given a hearing before the election — not even a centrist like Merrick Garland, who had won praise from Hatch in the past. Hatch cited the “toxic environment” of the election season and the “politicizing” of the nation’s highest court. Cavuto insisted that, depsite Hatch’s protestations, he too had played a role in the “politicization.”
“I appreciate it’s a crazy election year and all,” Cavuto said. “But by that reasoning, nothing would ever get done in an election year, because it’s a ‘toxic environment.'”
