Sen. Ben Sasse, R-Neb., wrote Friday that the American Bar Association "is a liberal organization" and should not be considered neutral in its evaluations.

"The American Bar Association is not neutral. The ABA is a liberal organization that has publicly and consistently advocated for left-of-center positions for more than two decades now. The ABA has no right to special treatment by members of this body," he wrote in an op-ed for The Daily Signal.

The senator then pointed to a number of cases where the ABA "decided to wade into divisive and contentious issues. This is their right, indeed, but it is definitely not neutral. In each of these cases and many more, the ABA took what can only be described as left-of-center positions. In each of these cases, the ABA was picking a side."

He added that the ABA is "absolutely allowed to do this. It is what makes this country great. But it's laughably naive to suggest that they are an objective and neutral organization. They are not."

"The ABA cannot take blatantly liberal positions on the one hand and then masquerade as a neutral party on the other and then demand a special seat at the table in the Senate Judiciary Committee and in the Senate, in this body, to try to tell us who is and isn't supposedly qualified to be a judge."
