What's ahead for the Neil Gorsuch confirmation hearings

20 March 2017

CBN News' Jennifer Wishon addressed that question and more on The 700 Club.

"Let's remember, the Supreme Court is more than just marble pillars and judicial robes", the Connecticut Democrat said.

Krauthammer said Democrats will instead save that strategy for the next Supreme Court nomination battle, which could be coming up soon if Justice Anthony Kennedy retires. Michael Bennet, as well as Neal Katyal, the former acting solicitor general during the Obama administration who has been supportive of Gorsuch's nomination. "The obstructionists are vowing to oppose this nominee because of his conservative judicial philosophy". His nomination has been cheered by Republicans and praised by some left-leaning legal scholars, and Democrats head into the Senate Judiciary Committee hearings on Monday divided over how hard to fight him.

NY magazine reports that Jennifer Sisk, a graduate from the University of Colorado Law School, wrote a letter to the Senate Committee on the Judiciary describing a troubling incident that occurred in Gorsuch's class. Sisk claims that Gorsuch reportedly expressed the belief that companies should question women about pregnancy during job interviews, and he suggested that women "manipulate companies and plan to disadvantage their companies, starting from the first interview".

Mr Reid interpreted Senate rules to mean that he could do this with a simple majority vote.

"A Supreme Court nominee may need 60 votes to avoid a filibuster".

Republican senators disputed the Democratic criticism. After the hearing, Neil's confirmation will be in the hands of the United States Senate. That means the minority is discounted completely. If confirmed by the Senate, Gorsuch would restore a narrow 5-4 conservative majority on the court. "This is basically the deliberative part of government which makes us unique", he continued.

He is confirmed with at least 51 votes after Republicans use the two-speech rule, a Senate rule that mandates the Senate stay in the same legislative day until filibustering senators give up on their efforts.

"I think that the Democrats realize they have likely lost on this issue, and will keep their powder dry for the next Supreme Court vacancy where the stakes will be much higher", Malcolm said.

"The seriousness with which the judge asked us to consider these realities reflected his desire to make us aware of them, not any animus against a career or group", he wrote. Bolstering her claim, there is evidence from shortly after the class in question - long before President Trump nominated Gorsuch for the Supreme Court - that she complained about Gorsuch to the law school dean and posted about the comments on Facebook.
