Mr. Cutler, a former White House Counsel in the Carter administration, testified in support of the nomination. Cutler described Judge Bork as moderate conservative rather than radical. He warned the committee that to reject Bork is to make a hostage of some future moderate liberal nominee put forth by a Democratic president to a Republican Senate.

Governor Thompson and Mr. Frank then testified. Thompson supported the nomination because of Judge Bork’s criminial justice opinions. Mr. Frank, a former law professor whose students included Sen. Specter (R-PA), spoke strongly against the nomination. Frank maintained that although Judge Bork calls for judicial restraint he is in fact - an extreme judical activist. close
