Do you accept that Covid-19 is infectious ? I I think yes, I do accept that Coved-19 is infectious that’s, something of which I feel like you know. We could say you take judicial notice of it’s an obvious fact.
Yes, do you accept that smoking causes cancer? I’m not sure exactly where you’re going with this, but you know the the notice that it smells simple. The question is what it is. You can answer it if you believe um, yes or no Senator Harris.
Yes, every package of cigarettes warns that smoking causes cancer, and do you believe that climate change is happening and it’s threatening the air we breathe in the water we drink um. Senator again, I was wondering where you were going with that.
You have asked me a series of questions like that are completely uncontroversial, like whether Covid-19 is infectious, whether smoking causes cancer and then trying to analogize that soliciting an opinion on me.
That is a very contentious matter opinion from me, that is on a very contentious matter of public debate, and I will not do that. I will not express a view on a matter of public policy, especially one that is politically controversial, because that’s.
Inconsistent with the judicial role, as I have explained, thank you thank you, Judge Barrett and you’ve, made your point clear that you believe it’s a debatable point.
