Schumer: Democrats remain skeptical of Gorsuch, may block him

Schumer: Democrats remain skeptical of Gorsuch, may block him

Senate confirmation hearings for Supreme Court nominee Neil Gorsuch are set to take place next week.

Mr. Gardner said the judge's record in Native American cases while serving on the 10th Circuit Court of Appeals in Denver will have an impact with "not only within Indian country, but the broader community of Democrat voters in the states that will be asked to vote on Judge Gorsuch in just a few weeks".

"Anyone who looks at Judge Gorsuch, based on his record and commitment to the rule of law, and his willingness to figure out what the law says, rather than what some people want it to say, will come to the conclusion they'll support him", Lee told Fox News' "America's Newsroom" on Thursday.

But the rest of them may be in the George W. Bush Presidential Library of the National Archives.

Senate Democratic leader Chuck Schumer's press conference today (ongoing as I write this) with supposed victims of Judge Gorsuch's principled judicial decisionmaking is a stupid stunt that highlights that so many on the Left have a completely results-oriented approach to judging.

Gorsuch's confirmation hearing begins Monday. Minority Leader Chuck Schumer - were in office at the time.

But his nomination would not withstand a Democratic filibuster, which would force Gorsuch to garner 60 votes for confirmation.

"The information we're learning about Neil Gorsuch's time at the Department of Justice only underscores how deeply concerned Americans should be that this nominee won't be a meaningful check on Donald Trump's illegal and unconstitutional agenda", said the group's vice president, Marge Baker.

Both Senator Cornyn and Senator Ted Cruz (R- Texas) have been proponents of Gorsuch's SCOTUS confirmation.

"If a nominee can not get 60 votes, you don't change the rules, you change the nominee", Schumer said.
