He also expounds on his view of politics versus the law, which he was able to see in action, close up, during the second half of 1987.

only heard the audio. Have to trust that the Honorable Judge uttered what he said.
There are virtually no jurists in our time that subscribe to the original intent of the law they are tasked to apply.Judge Bork stands as one who applies, or does not apply the law as it was written, with great regard for the intent.
What is left to compare is an unwaivering devotion to original intent. What was the law meant to address? Does it address this case?? If not, does it apply???
If I cannot reconcile these things, can I rule outside of my own moral beliefs?
No, but your inquiry surely tweaked me!
Why do you ask???
