2005: PICK PRAISES FEDERALIST SOCIETY IN SPEECH
The DRUDGE REPORT has obtained exclusive excerpts from a speech Bush Supreme Court nominee Harriet Miers made to the DC Lawyers Chapter of the Federalist Society on April 29, 2005.
At the speech Miers? declared, ?You [the Federalist Society] are an important ally on many issues, especially in our battles to ensure for our Nation a distinguished Federal judiciary, a judiciary the American people deserve.?
Miers went on: ?There is a reason White House Counsels have sought out your organization for over twenty years: the influence your organization has developed within the legal society and society as a whole.
"From your educational publications to your various speaking events to your network of legal professionals, you have stimulated an on-going debate about the principles of the Constitution. Our Nation is better for it. And as this debate has raged your organization has grown tremendously.?
A Republican strategist told of the excerpts was not surprised. ?Harriet Miers has at least five lawyers who are members of the Federalist Society on her own staff in the White Counsels Office.?
Earlier Thursday, the DRUDGE REPORT published sworn testimony given by Miers in 1989 in which she said that she ?wouldn?t belong to the Federalist Society? ? a conservative and libertarian lawyers? organization ? because it was ?politically charged.?
At the time, Miers did not include in that category the NAACP and other liberal groups, the transcript revealed.
