The author of a new book about Antonin Scalia says the late Supreme Court justice was fascinated by then-candidate Donald Trump’s outspokenness during the 2016 presidential elections. “Justice Scalia thought it was most refreshing to have a candidate who was pretty much unfiltered and utterly frank,” Bryan Garner, a legal dictionary editor, told The Wall Street Journal in an interview published Monday. “[H]e was fascinated by the fact that Trump was so outspoken in an unfiltered way, and therefore w...
