Sen. John Kennedy, R-La., left a Biden judicial nominee speechless during her confirmation hearing Wednesday after he quizzed her on basic constitutional law theory.
Judge Ana de Alba, who currently serves on a California federal district court and is nominated to serve on the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals, struggled to define the Dormant Clause and Commerce Clause under Article 1 of the Constitution.
“This has been in the news a lot lately, and you’ll probably see it if you’re confirmed to the Court of Appeal. Tell me about the Dormant Commerce Clause,” Kennedy said.
Kennedy started his grilling by asking if a person’s race should be used to harm or to help that person?
Kennedy then launched into the Dormant Commerce Clause.
De Alba said she was “somewhat familiar” with it, and Kennedy reminder her, “There was a big Supreme Court case that just came out of your state.”
The report explains that the Dormant Commerce Clause, “prohibits one state from discriminating against another state’s commerce or “impose undue burdens on interstate commerce.””
De Alba appeared to be completely stumped.
