Democrats are still angry at Republicans for refusing to consider Barack Obama's Supreme Court nominee.

Monday's session, the first of at least three days of hearings scheduled for Gorsuch's nomination, begin at 11 a.m. with opening statements from members of the Senate Judiciary Committee.

Gorsuch's comments came after almost four hours of opening statements by the Senators on the committee and responded to Democratic concerns that he often sides with corporations at the expense of individuals. Richard J. Durbin said in his opening statement. The issue has become even more important for Democrats in the wake of Trump's controversial travel ban and his full-throated criticisms of federal judges that they say show a lack of respect for the role of the judiciary. "Some of my colleagues seem to have rediscovered an appreciation for the need to confine each branch of government to its proper sphere". "His grasp on the separation of powers - including judicial independence - enlivens his body of work".
