Sens. Klobuchar and Franken wary on SCOTUS nominee

Sens. Klobuchar and Franken wary on SCOTUS nominee

For those reasons and simply because of the partisan killing field that Washington has become, Gorsuch can count on the Democrats to engage in obstruction and delay, despite his sterling reputation and glowing resume, the law degree from Harvard, and a doctorate in philosophy from Oxford.

He's a conservative, of course, but one who has the reputation for having a libertarian bent to his decisions and is well regarded by his colleagues.

"Religious freedom is not a license to discriminate", the statement read. He came to national prominence in the United States a few years ago when he ruled in favour of the famous Hobby Lobby case.

As a judge in Denver, Gorsuch has mainly handled run-of-the-mill insurance and contract disputes. "I would say it's up to Mitch, but I would say, 'Go for it'".

Why did he get the nomination? .

President Trump's nomination of Judge Neil Gorsuch to the Supreme Court presents a dilemma for Democrats, according to David Boies, an attorney who has argued landmark cases before the high court.

Trump said he "has outstanding legal skills, a brilliant mind, tremendous discipline and has earned bipartisan support" and was "the man our country needs and needs badly to ensure the rule of law and the rule of justice".

Lee said Republicans are prepared to shepherd Trump's nominee through the Senate.

What difference will he make? .

CNN reported that conservative Judge Neil Gorsuch has been told he will be the nominee to replace late Justice Antonin Scalia.

In the tiebreaker, she trailed 3-1 before winning the last six points - clinching the match on Pavlyuchenkova's double-fault. Almost two decades later, the siblings will make history as the oldest opponents to face each other in a Grand Slam final.

The deciding voice is often that of Justice Anthony Kennedy. Should Gorsuch be confirmed, the conservatives would have the upper hand.

It will proceed as it has since Justice Scalia's death, with just eight of the nine seats filled. "Judge Gorsuch understands the invaluable contribution to the federal judiciary and our democratic government made by the justice he is succeeding".

The Senate is now split with 52 Republican seats and 48 controlled by the Democrats.

If Democrats decide to filibuster Trump's choice, the nominee would need 60 votes to pass. Republicans control 52 seats.

In an interview, Carrie Severino, the JCN's chief counsel, said conservatives plan to hold Democrats up for reelection in 2018 accountable for their votes.

Democrats had demanded time to ask more questions about the nominees and boycotted the meeting, but Republicans pressed ahead by suspending a rule that requires at least one Democrat to be present for votes. Barack Obama's nominee for the seat was left unheard.

Gorsuch was among the 21 possible choices for the court Trump released during the campaign.

The real fight should be over the next nominee - the replacement, perhaps, for liberal justices Ruth Bader Ginsburg, 83, or Stephen Breyer, 78.

The alliance added that "as a federal judge, he ruled on two of the most consequential religious freedom cases in recent years, and both times he opposed genuine religious freedom".
