My law clerks come from diverse backgrounds and points of view.
I am part of the vibrant Catholic community in the D.C. area. The members of that community disagree about many things, but we are united by a commitment to serve.
As a judge, I have always treated colleagues and litigants with the utmost respect.
My wife and daughters have faced vile and violent threats.
I revere the Constitution.
With respect to the legal justifications or the policies relating to the treatment of detainees, I was not aware of any issues on that or the legal memos that subsequently came out until the summer, sometime in 2004, when there started to be news reports on that.
