Scalia (2012): What Can Obama Do to Me? by FOX NEWS
(Jul 29, 2012) In an interview on FNS, Chris Wallace asked Justice Scalia if he felt pressured when President Obama called out the Supremes at this State of the Union address a couple of years ago. What can he do to me, responded Scalia.
SCALIA: It’s unusual. But as I say, I don’t criticize the president publicly and he normally doesn’t criticize me.
WALLACE: Did you feel any pressure as a result of that to vote a certain way?
SCALIA: No. What can he do to me? Or to any of us? We have life tenure and we have it precisely so that we will not be influenced by politics, by threats from anybody.
WALLACE: Did you view that as a threat?
SCALIA: I didn’t view it as a threat. I’m not even sure I heard it.
