High court nominee to face daylong questioning in Senate

Assuming he ultimately gets approved by the Senate, there are few individuals who will have as direct and immediate impact on what your credit union can and can't do for decades to come.

The issue of whether the IDEA requires "some" progress or "significant" progress is one that courts have differed on and the question is now before the Supreme Court in a separate case with a ruling expected later this year.

In what may have been an oblique reference to President Trump's attacks on judges who have ruled against him, Gorsuch thanked "my fellow judges across the country".

Franken, who referred several time to the Supreme Court as the "Roberts court", acknowledged Gorsuch's experience and said he has "strong opinions", but questioned his interpretation of the Constitution.

Dianne Feinstein, the senior Democrat on the committee, said she wanted assurances that Gorsuch would not seek to overturn the Supreme Court's landmark 1973 case Roe v. Wade, which legalized abortion in the United States.

"However, I can not let this moment, commenting on the best traditions of the Senate, pass without expressing my deep regret that Chief Judge Merrick Garland was treated with profound and historic disrespect".

German Foreign Minister Explains Clueless Trump How 'Security' Works
German defense spending is set to increase by 1.4 billion euros to 38.5 billion euros in 2018, Reuters reported. Berlin's defense budget has always been below NATO's target of 2 percent of a member's gross domestic product.

"It would be shocking if Neil Gorsuch wasn't confirmed to the Supreme Court in the coming weeks", Tom Goldstein, a lawyer in Washington, D.C., who argues before the court and publishes the ScotusBlog website, said.

President Donald Trump has nominated him to fill the vacancy created when Justice Antonin Scalia died in February of a year ago.

If at the end of the hearing the opposition's criticism remains that Gorsuch is "no friend of the little guy", the American public will know with certainty that there is no principled argument against Gorsuch's confirmation. The confirmation hearing for Neil chair begins on March 20. So it will be interesting to see how Senate Judiciary Committee Democrats attempt to meet the irrational demands of their out-to-sea supporters.

Committee head Sen. Chuck Grassley predicted the first round of questioning will last for about 10 hours, and joked that he would appreciate it if he could be home for his preferred 9 p.m. bedtime. Charles Grassley, R-Iowa, during his confirmation hearing before the committee. It's unclear when the full Senate will vote on Gorsuch, but Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said he was confident the vote would happen by April 7, when the Senate leaves for its Easter recess.

Two former students have accused Supreme Court nominee Neil Gorsuch of telling their class that businesses needed to ask female job applicants about "their pregnancy and family plans", alleging that "many women" manipulated maternity leave policies for their own benefit.

Tuesday should bring the first round of questions and first indication whether the Democrats will give the nominee a rough time.
