Bitter partisanship on display at Supreme Court hearing


Gorsuch was nominated by President Trump to fill the seat left open by the death of Antonin Scalia and has broad support among Republicans.

After having the opportunity to meet with Judge Gorsuch in my office, I am confident that he possesses both the proper temperament and analytical approach needed to decide the fundamental legal issues facing today's Supreme Court. "He's going to keep you busy". Richard Durbin, D-Ill., told Gorsuch.

"My decisions have never reflected a judgment about the people before me - only my best judgment about the law and facts at issue in each particular case", the nominee said.

The senators will begin questioning Gorsuch at 9:30 a.m. Tuesday. Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has said he intends Trump's pick will be confirmed before the Senate goes on break April 8.

"I'm deeply disappointed that it's under these circumstances that we begin our hearings", Sen.

The fire consumed the multi-story building and spread to a nearby apartment building and several other buildings on the complex. The developer of the apartment complex told 41 Action News that two of the buildings still under construction are a total loss.

But in a letter provided to NBC News on Monday by a person helping with the Gorsuch nomination process, another former student wrote to the committee to refute Sisk's claims.

"Senate Republicans made a big show a year ago about respecting the vote of the American people in this process", said Senate Patrick Leahy (D, Vermont). He noted that the judiciary panel had once defied President Franklin D. Roosevelt's "court packing" - or attempts to expand the size of the Supreme Court in order to earn more favorable rulings.

Sen. Michael Bennet, D-Colo., referred to the vacancy as the "Garland seat", and of the GOP's blocking of his nomination as "an embarrassment to this body". Gorsuch's confirmation would generally restore the court's 5-4 conservative tilt, although Justice Anthony Kennedy, for whom Gorsuch clerked, has joined the liberals on cases involving gay rights, abortion rights and race.

Monday is the beginning of four days of hearings.

"This is quite a lot different than the last time I was here", Gorsuch joked as he introduced his family to the committee, contrasting the large crowd seated behind him in the hearing room with that at a far less controversial hearing in 2006 for him to serve on the 10th Circuit Court of Appeals.

A Senate Committee slashed funding Wednesday from a House bill that sought to double the state's preschool pilot program. A rally from noon to 1 p.m. on the South Steps of the Capitol will feature Kolkhorst and Rafael Cruz, father of U.S.

Other Republicans argued that Gorsuch should be judged on his own merits, legal writings and decisions - not compared to the man who nominated him.

"This will be more of an ordeal than for your last appointment", Sen. And others will use the hearings to raise concerns about the direction of the Roberts Court in the Trump Era, given the large array of critical issues that could soon come before SCOTUS, including some that were stalled previous year due to a deadlocked Court awaiting Scalia's replacement.

"The American people played a very direct role in helping choose this nominee", Cruz added. Thom Tillis (R-N.C.).

"The nominee before us is not President Trump". The vocal Trump critic added with a laugh, "obviously I didn't believe that". Some in the room erupted in laughter.

Democrats, under intense pressure from liberal base voters horrified by the Trump presidency, entered the hearings divided over how hard to fight Gorsuch's nomination given that the mild-mannered jurist is no right-wing bomb thrower and is widely expected to win confirmation in the end, one way or another. Democrats said they were troubled by a judicial record they said was animated by a cold and literal reading of the law and skewed toward business interests.
