Justice Neil Gorsuch, evangelizing for the separation of powers

Updated: Apr 25, 2020

I did not miss the irony as I sat in an elegant ballroom listening to a U.S. Supreme Court justice deliver an eloquent defense of the separation of powers on Presidents Day.

Last week, Justice Neil Gorsuch returned to his home state for a few days and took an hour to visit with a small gathering of a couple hundred people and sign copies of his recent book, “A Republic, If You Can Keep It.” 

Falling between the auditorium-busting crowds that turned out for Bernie Sanders on Sunday and President Donald Trump on Thursday, the Gorsuch event didn’t include screaming supporters, campaign paraphernalia or a sea of political placards. Instead it had neatly lined rows of ballroom chairs filled with lawyers in suits.

And it had a profound and important message.
