Here Are 4 Possible Outcomes for Gorsuch's Confirmation Process

Tenth Circuit Judge Neil Gorsuch's nomination to the U.S. Supreme Court faces its most public test starting Monday, when he faces the Senate Judiciary Committee for the start of what could be an nearly weeklong confirmation hearing.

The Senate Judiciary Committee should ask him about that during this week's confirmation hearings.

A Gorsuch spokeswoman confirmed he co-owns a Colorado vacation home with Cannon Harvey and Kevin Conwick, two longtime Anschutz associates, and Gorsuch has been an occasional guest at Anschutz's dove-hunting retreats - a rite of passage for many state politicos. "This is a Gary Cooper character", Krauthammer said on "Special Report" tonight.

And in a deft move, Gorsuch showed independence withoutpiercing any White House thin skins when a Democratic senator quoted him as calling Trump's heated rhetorical assault on his fellow federal judges "demoralizing" and "disheartening".

Senate confirmation hearings get underway for Supreme Court nominee Neil Gorsuch next week. It's a shocking disparity given the incredibly high stakes for a nomination that could keep the high court tilted to the right for decades to come.

Blumenthal learned of the communications between Gorsuch and Davis from about 150,000 pages of documents the nominee has turned over to the Senate Judiciary Committee.

Neil Gorsuch does not belong on the Supreme Court.

"The Democratic base wants there to be as much resistance to Trump's agenda as possible", Hasen said.

As we consider these questions, citizens should take note of fresh news stories about Gorsuch's brief role as an attorney in the Bush Administration during a period of time where government lawyers played a substantial role in providing the legal justifications for enhanced interrogation techniques that would seem to conflict with Gorsuch's moral position that "all human beings are intrinsically valuable". Tobi Young, a former Gorsuch clerk now practicing law in Texas, said Gorsuch adhered to the tenet that "any judge who likes every conclusion he reaches is a bad judge". Yet judges like Gorsuch believe in applying the law as it is written, not as they might wish it to be. Conservative and GOP-related groups have outspent Democrats on TV by more than $3 million, according to Democrats and Republicans tracking the advertising figures. He wrote separately, however, to say that making a political contribution was a "fundamental" right deserving the highest level of constitutional protection, known as "strict scrutiny review". The 10th Circuit ruled that privately held, for-profit secular corporations were "persons" under the meaning of the Religious Freedom Restoration Act, and could qualify for religious exemptions from a mandate in the federal health-care law, the Affordable Care Act, to provide health plans with birth control services. This is the culmination of a series of unusual political events that took place after Justice Antonin Scalia's untimely death in February 2016. But it is not clear that enough Democrats would join the filibuster for it to succeed, and Republicans could change Senate rules to eliminate the filibuster for Supreme Court nominees and confirm him with a simple-majority vote. The trend toward politicizing the court is eroding its credibility for objectively upholding the law, the senator charged. As a result, Gorsuch has sailed through the early parts of the nomination process, meeting with more than 70 senators and getting very little pushback.
