Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) took a moment out of Supreme Court nominee Judge Neil Grouch's confirmation hearing Monday to scold his fellow lawmakers on both sides of the aisle for playing partisan politics when it comes to nominating Supreme Court justices.
Ms Feinstein made mention of the "unprecendented treatment" of Merrick Garland, who was former President Obama's nominee for Mr Scalia's seat.
Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) meets with Supreme Court nominee Neil Gorsuch in his Senate office. As a member of the Senate Judiciary Committee, he said he is prepared to grill Gorsuch on his positions on abortion rights and gun control. Gorsuch's appointment presents an opportunity for Democrats - who are in the minority in the House and the Senate - to flex their political muscle and attempt to block the pick.
Where does Gorsuch stand on key issues like abortion, gay rights, and gun laws?

Keoughan told the Secret Service: "There's a bomb in the trunk" while holding something in his right hand, the police report said. White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer praised the Secret Service Saturday for their handling of the situation.
Gardner says he will support Gorsuch's confirmation.
He'll also face questions about Grace Hwang, a college professor whose employer wouldn't extend the six months of paid leave she had taken during cancer treatment.
The nominee is also likely to be quizzed on whether he is sufficiently independent from President Trump, who has lambasted judges for ruling against his bid to restrict travel from certain Muslim-majority nations. This might be a good time for a strict constitutionalist - Gorsuch is supposedly one - to deliver a respectful observation about how, if we ignore our federal courts and the rule of law, we introduce anarchy to our constitutional republic.
Many evangelical leaders are excited that the president followed through on a pledge to appoint a pro-life justice.

"We've gotten some 'dada-esque" sounds but nothing concrete, but I'm working super hard at it. And my wife is working "mama, ' so it's a battle to the finish, but we'll see".
That's reason enough why every Democratic Senator must use every tool at he/r disposal to defeat Gorsuch's nomination, including the filibuster.
"They see this as President Trump fulfilling a campaign promise that he made and that was something that really unified a lot of evangelicals that may have had some concerns about Trump the candidate", said Marx.
The nominee himself, Judge Neil Gorsuch of the Denver-based 10th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals, seemed nearly an afterthought at times, sitting alone at the witness table, occasionally nodding or taking notes, as the 20 members of the Judiciary Committee took turns delivering lengthy and partisan opening statements. Some Democrats have already signaled their opposition to Gorsuch's nomination, although it is unclear how many of them there are. We will hear many citations of the unanimous votes with which potential justices, including Gorsuch's role model Antonin Scalia, was confirmed back in those golden days before liberals ruined that great tradition in 1987 by keeping Robert Bork off the Court. Bob Casey and Republican Sen. However, through an audacious and historically unprecedented act of grand theft judiciary, the Republicans stole the seat out from under the Democrats and now have the chance to put a radical, young conservative on the Court for the next several decades.
"He asked the class to raise their hands if they knew of a female who had used a company to get maternity benefits and then left right after having a baby". The real issue, according to Ms Perry, is that ten Senators are up for re-election, "five in red red states", and so they may "get caught between the party in Washington and people at home".
