VP Mike Pence on Chief Justice Roberts: 'A Disappointment to Conservatives"

In an exclusive interview with CBN News, Vice President Mike Pence boldly called out Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts by name for disappointing conservatives.

"We have great respect for the institution of the Supreme Court of the United States, but Chief Justice Roberts has been a disappointment to conservatives," Pence told CBN's David Brody in Florida on Wednesday. The response came after a question about whether Roberts has let down conservatives over the years. The vice president pointed to the key decision in 2012 by Roberts to uphold Obamacare and his recent ruling siding with liberals in which they upheld a limit to the number of people who can attend church services in Nevada during COVID-19.

"I think several cases out of the Supreme Court are reminders of just how important this election is for the future of the Supreme Court," the vice president said.

Vice President Pence also mentioned a case in Louisiana in which the Supreme Court struck down a Louisiana pro-life law that said doctors from abortion clinics would have to have admitting privileges at local hospitals. Once again, Roberts sided with the four liberals on the court.

"That's a very modest restriction on abortion providers," Pence tells CBN News. "But a narrow majority in the Supreme Court still said it was unacceptable. I think it's been a wake-up call for pro-life voters around the country who understand, in a very real sense, the destiny of the Supreme Court is on the ballot in 2020."
