John Elway backs Gorsuch for Supreme Court

The hearing continues for three more days with a committee vote in two weeks.

Judge Neil Gorsuch's confirmation hearing begins on March 20th and both sides of the political aisle are prepping for a battle that has been almost 14 months in the making. The vacancy was prompted by the February 2016 death of Justice Antonin Scalia. Most Democrats are intent on digging in their heels to oppose Gorsuch, both on ideological grounds and in retaliation against Republicans' refusal to hold hearings on Merrick Garland, Obama's nominee a year ago to replace Scalia.

Blumenthal said it was not "idle speculation" to suggest the Supreme Court might be asked to enforce a subpoena against Trump, citing FBI Director James Comey's testimony before Congress on Monday confirming an ongoing investigation into alleged collusion between Trump's presidential campaign and Russian Federation. "And if you are concerned about these things, as you should be: meet Judge Neil Gorsuch".

You can watch Judge Gorsuch's 13-minute long opening remarks at c-span.org. "Our disagreements are never about politics-only the law's demands", he said. Patrick Leahy, D-Vt. "Now they are arguing that the Senate should rubber stamp a nominee selected by extreme interest groups and nominated by a president who lost the popular vote by almost 3 million votes".

In addition, the American Civil Liberties Union and the National Education Association have also expressed concern about Gorsuch's record on disability rights issues, particularly in regard to cases involving students with disabilities. Not one senator voted against Gorsuch's confirmation.

"Democrats have failed to demonstrate a strong, unified resistance to this nominee despite the fact that he is an ultra-conservative jurist who will undermine our basic freedoms and threaten the independence of the federal judiciary", they wrote.

The structure of the CFPB- As readers of this blog will know the US Court of Appeals for the DC Circuit is set to reconsider En banc, whether the CFPB as structured is constitutional. "The Supreme Court is too important for us not to find a way to end our destructive gridlock and bitter partisanship". They describe Gorsuch as thoughtful, considerate and fair-minded. Speaking to the Republicans and Democrats who'll be called upon to vote on his nomination, the judge appeared to be both mindful and dismissive of the political battle forming in the room around him. We will learn more during the Senate confirmation hearings. It usually either recommends a nominee favorably or unfavorably before sending the final vote to the full Senate. But Republicans have their own plan to deal with a potential filibuster: Going nuclear. Their base is insisting on it, because of what happened to President Obama's nominee.

"I have been approached a couple times (about running for office)", Elway said in a 2015 interview with Fox News. "Because that would be an absolute shame if a man of this quality was put up to that neglect".

They will be demanding because there's a lot at stake - now and for years to come.
